VIETNAM ERA ZODIAC SEA WOLF ...
THE 1967 ZODIAC SEA WOLF WAS AVAILABLE AT MILITARY PX AND WAS UTILIZED BY MANY US SOLDIERS INCLUDING NAVY SEALS AND MEMBERS OF USA UNDERWATER DEMOLITION TEAMS AS WELL AS PILOTS AND GROUND TROOPS.
IN FACT, MUCH OF THE RUGGED REPUTATION OF THE SEA WOLF BY ZODIAC STEMS FROM ITS POPULARITY AMONG US TROOPS IN THE VIETNAM WAR.
ITS RUGGEDNESS, DEPENDABILITY AND PRICE MADE IS A TOP CHOICE.
THE SEA WOLD WAS NOT A PAMPERED TIME PIECE.. ON THE CONTRARY.. IT IS THE FACT OF ITS DESIGN AND RELIABILITY THAT WON THE SEA WOLF POPULARITY.
"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 hands 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."
