Restored SST - Before & After pics
« 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.

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 .
