Band Markings / Band Types
« on: March 29, 2016, 06:41:53 pm »
I'm not a Zodiac “collector”, just an owner and I have a couple of questions re the two Seawolfs I spoke about in my post under “Zodiac Talk/Watch Stories” if someone would be good enough to answer them I'd appreciate it.
I notice members here referring to “JB Champion” markings on bands. On the two I own, the Jubilee is  marked as such, but the Oyster Band is marked simply “Zodiac” with the logo and what I assume is a date (7-65). Can anybody tell me if this has any influence on value? Also, is one marking and/or band type (Jubilee vs Oyster) more desirable than the other?
Thanks in advance. :new

According to sales on eBay, Jubilee type is way popular (thus 2-3 times more expensive) than Oyster for Zodiac Sea Wolves.
Probably, due to its longevity? Oyster bracelets have a springs inside. After years of service many of them brake. And the bracelet lose its shape. The Jubilee is more robust.
