Title: Restored SST - Before & After pics
Post by: Sea Wolf on August 17, 2010, 02:48:45 pm
BWG did a great job on my SST that just came back from the spa.

The first 4 photos are the before and last 3 the after.

I see butch has a similar model on his watches page but his does not have the SST/36000, what's the difference?

Yours is from the 70's and has the high beat 86 movement, mine is from the 60's and has the 76 (SWish) movement.

WOW--what difference---BWG is THE man. beautiful watch, i think it is amazing what a bunch of TLC can do. i know my 2 sea wolfs will blow me away when they come home. i am envious of that original bracelet.  JON

The band you see on this watch I purchased on ebay about 2 years ago, just hoping to match it up someday with a Zodiac and I
like it on this model.  Just wish I could find the correct curved end pieces to complete it.

i thought it was an original bracelet at first! be careful with this spring loaded end piece if you wear it a lot, the ends will make excessive wear on the lugs because they are always pressing on them and can "eat a groove" in all the lugs. just a fyi from my past experience.  beautiful watch!!  JON

Wow!
That is a really good job done!

I've got a similar watch except mine has a gold casing.

Who do you say did the restoration?

What would you say yours is worth and how much if it was in a gold casing like mine?

click on the watch repair header on the forum and get in touch with butch. we all use this watchmaker in CA. , he does beautiful work and knows  the zodiac brand  inside and out. he has done three for me so far, a GMT and 2 sea wolfs, one black, one white dials.  try him, you WILL BE PLEASED ! he also does any other brand too .
