I purchased this model Zodiac Seawolf on a Navy ship in 1966 when I was in the Marines. It cost me a $120, at the time the ships store was also selling Rolex Submariner's for $180. I liked the looks of the Zodiac more, and it also had a date window which for me back then was a plus (still is).

I ended up getting rid of the Seawolf (sold it for $25.) after it crapped out on me after 7 years. At that time it was too costly for me to get it fixed.

Fast forward 50 years and if I had spent another $60 and bought and kept the Rolex, it would be worth over $10K right now. Wish I could take a time machine back to council my younger self on that purchase decision.
