My current Zodiac
« on: August 07, 2009, 01:30:42 am »
Well...I have no idea why I can see only my own posts and no one else's...but here goes:  I'm a collector and Zodiac is one of my favourite brands.  I have had a quartz GMT, a 1970's SeaWolf, and now a 1990's? SeaWolf.  Here are a couple of underwater pics:

 Originally the elapsed-time bezel was all gold-plated, but the plating started to wear badly. I simply polished it aff, removed the black paint from the numbers, and voila...a steel bezel with gold numbers.

Hi Sherry, still working a few glitches with the new forum.  This issue of not seeing other posts when you log in, should be fixed.  Let me know otherwise.  Thanks

Nice solution to the plating loss Sherry.  By the way, what is the case size on your Sea Wolf?  I bought a 34mm like it, with a gold bezel, that my wife ended up with.  Plus, I just recently bought a 38mm all SS version that I've been wearing myself.

Hi John:  mine is about 34mm too, minus the crown and shoulders.  I'm finding smaller watches harder to read without reading glasses these days!

Hey Sherry,

That Zodiac still looks mighty nice.  I love honest wear on a watch, shows its usefullness as a tool.

i own one just like yours but with the original stainless/gold bracelet. i wondered when it dated to, so is the 1990s when it was new? i have never removed the back--does anyone know what movement these have? i guess probably ETA. i bought mine on ebay over a year ago and the guy keeps contactig me trying to buy it back!
