Thank you, Yury. I was hoping you'd respond as you're one of the obvious, defacto zodiac gurus. There's a possibility I may be able to make a straight trade with someone who has a 916 steel bezel (on a 946 case, lol) - so we'd both be improving our situations. Otherwise, I need to source a proper bezel OR a proper 946 case and back...
Question - how does the steel bezel affix to a 916? Is it purely friction? are these bezels prone to coming off, if so? Thanks in advance!

HI All, I'm back again :) I am working on another Seawolf - it seems as though it was a bit of a franken monster, but I'm trying to figure out what parts go where... and make it right.
so, the caseback is a 722-916. Whether it belongs to the case- I don't know. The Bezel that came with it is a blue 'bakelite' bezel. Though sits on the case perfectly, it won't stay connected. A spring clip (ala the 722-946) does NOT work because the case doesn't have that slight ridge for the spring. However, it doesn't 'appear' to be worn down. Did earlier cases hold the bezel in differently than with a wire spring? Also - is a bakelite bezel even correct for a (supposed) 722-916... Serial number on the case is 180641 (for whatever that's worth)
The lugs are also not the same as the 722-946, they are a bit rounder. Any help or thoughts would sure be appreciated! Thanks
Two extra links with the pin for a Vintage Zodiac Sea Wolf Bracelet. I purchased a 1960'sYou cannot view this attachment. Zodiac Sea Wolf on this site years ago. I thought I would offer them here as someone might have a need for them. I don't know how to price these so $24.00 shipped? Paypal accepted. Thanks for looking.

Hello there good people,
I ended up here because I was looking for a blue dial for my Astrographic. I'm also kind of interested to know exactly what SST stands for and how it works and I'm trying to figure out if the discs in the dial can be cleaned or if they always are a bit foggy. Looks like I will find most answers here!
This is my watch. I wear it everyday and the bracelet leaves a lot to be desired but finding a replacement one has so far proved futile.
