General Zodiac Discussion / Re: Added another Zodiac to the collection
« Last post by YuriyV on May 26, 2020, 09:48:19 AM »
The lume doesn't bother me, really. I figured it had to have been redone to be as bright as it is.

I will definitely be emailing you next week about the BWG to have this watch serviced. I'm just going to enjoy it for a few days before i have to ship it off!

Whole dial is refinished. Not just lume. I'd suggest to find a replacement before shipping it for service.

Nice specimen! Yes, the markers look redone, but no biggie! Watchmakers can add stuff to the lum to age it.

If you do not know the service history then get it serviced. See the watch repair tab for why.

I'd been looking to add a Sea Wolf to the collection and managed to snag a super deal this week. The watch was advertised as "runs and then stops randomly". I think the seller just wasn't that familiar with automatic watches.  I wore if for about 6 hours and then took it off overnight and it kept time perfectly! The one thing that is throwing me off a bit are the 12-3-6-9 markers.  I have seen some examples where the numbers are bolder than others, but not mixed on the same watch.  The lume is consistent on the markers and the hands as well.  It glows pretty brightly, which makes me wonder if it might have been redone?

The watch came on a stainless bracelet of some sort. Very hideous. I put it on a black strap I had, it's a little too big but works for now.  I really prefer a stainless bracelet, but I think that's going to be a quest to source.  I'm kind of digging the black strap.  If I could source a 16MM silver Zodiac buckle, I might go that route.  Or both!

I had not seen a Sea Wolf in person prior to getting this one.  It really is a striking timepiece!

Vintage Zodiacs For Sale - Pre 1999 / WTB Original 17mm Steel GMT bracelet

I have a 7.5 inch wrist, so it would need to be long enough to accommodate. Would need end links as well. This is for a 17mm lug mid 60's GMT.

Thank you

I saw this Zodiac on the Internet... / Re: Is This Olympos Automatic kosher?

Not beating a dead horse but searching for quickset returns a page of info and searching for quick set (it really is 2 words) returns 4 pages of info. Surprisingly, one is on the Watch Repair page. I had forgotten it was there when I did my search. Maybe you were inside a particular area when you tried it? Be sure to do the searching from the forum's home page to get all results though.

Again, presented as help and not admonishment. Thanks.

Kindly suggesting that using the search function here can answer questions like this one.

You should use the Zodiac "Dateographic" feature. Wind it past midnight to change the date, then back to 8:30p and back to midnight to use the "quick change". Of course, today it is much simpler to change the day and date, but this is how it worked on Zodiacs in the 60s and 70s.


As to your second question, no, but the dated catalogs can be found at http://www.zodiaccatalogs.com/

Ahh yeah sorry I should've mentioned that I did search prior to posting but couldn't find what I was looking for, mainly cuz I wasn't sure what I was looking for.
