Looks tempting but is it legit?
« on: September 07, 2014, 04:17:07 am »
I am thinking about bidding on this Sea Wolf but I have some reservations.

First there is no picture of the movement which is never a good sign plus I feel like the bezel does not match the watch i.e. could it be aftermarket?

anyway I am just looking for some opinions on if this Sea Wolf is worth bidding on or should I just wait for another one to pop up.

Thanks

That is legit. They also made that in the acrylic bezels with the orange markings. The dial in pretty faded though. That will probably go for ~$500. Take a look in the Gallery and even My Watches. 

SWs are very hard to get the back off off, and even hard to get them back on, most of the time there will be no picture of the movement for that reason.

It got up to $102 when I wrote the last. I just went back to look at something and see it is now cancelled. Add another seller to my Do No Bid with list. I hate it when sellers do this.

Bummer:(
That was a cool watch. Didn't realize it was available with the non-acrylic bezel.

damn that is a real bummer I was ready to get into the bidding action.

what's your opinion on this Sea Wolf? 111453533600 (ebay id) I think it looks it decent shape they only thing that concerns me is that it is from Russia, I've heard that sometimes sellers from Russia can be a bit sketchy.

I really like the leather band though.

Really? I can't say that. There are a couple of Russians here in the Forum with whom I have done business with in the past. No issues at all.

He does call out the dial condition, which I don't care for. No mention of a recent services, just lots of new parts. I think for that money, or a little more added to it, you can find a nicer specimen. Were it a true auction and went for ~$250 that may be OK, but it is not.

You can buy the band you like so ignore that unless it is original. When I buy a watch I often tell them to keep the band that is on it is not a Zodiac band.
