HOW ABOUT ANOTHER  VIETNAM ERA ZODIAC SEA WOLF ...

THIS OFFER IS FOR A VINTAGE  1968 STAINLESS STEEL **NONE-DATE MILITARY PX VERSION HACKING SEA WOLF WITH ZODIAC MOVEMENT.

THE 1968 ZODIAC SEA WOLF WAS AVAILABLE AT THE MILITARY PX AND AT ALL R&R DESTINATIONS.

IN FACT, MUCH OF THE RUGGED REPUTATION OF THE SEA WOLF BY ZODIAC STEMS FROM ITS POPULARITY AMONG US TROOPS IN THE VIETNAM WAR.   

A FAVORITE OF MANY US SOLDIERS, INCLUDING ARMY GREEN BERET, PILOTS, NAVY SEALS AND MEMBERS OF UNDERWATER DEMOLITION TEAMS, THE SEA WOLF WAS NOT A PAMPERED TIME PIECE.. ON THE CONTRARY,  IT IS THE FACT OF ITS DESIGN, RELIABILITY, RUGGEDNESS, DEPENDABILITY AND PRICE THAT WON THE SEA WOLF POPULARITY AND MADE IT A TOP CHOICE.

"In order to establish the best hermetic seal possible for the Sea Wolf, the engineers created a special back for the casing, a longer stem sleeve, several new types of gaskets, and a rounded crystal sealed in plastic. Throw in *radium/tritium hands and markers for greater visibility and you've have a diving watch used by amateurs and professionals, including military members such as the Underwater Demolition Team and US Navy SEALs."

* EARLER VERSIONS USED RADIUM LATER TRITIUM
** DATE VERSIONS WEAR OUT THE OFF SET CANON PINIONS AND THEY ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE
