THE ABOVE ADVERT INFORMS IT'S READERS TO VISIT THE ZODIAC EXHIBITION IN THE SWISS WATCH PAVILION AT THE NEW YORK WORLDS FAIR. THIS WAS IN 1964 IN FLUSHING QUEENS NY.  I WAS THERE. I ACTUALLY VISITED THE PAVILION. IT WAS FREE. IF YOU READ MY BOOK, YOU WOULD READ HOW WE WENT TO 14 FREE EXHIBITS THE WATCH PAVILION, GENERAL ELECTRIC AND THE IBM EXHIBITS WERE THE BEST AND THE AMPHIBIAN CAR THAT WENT INTO WATER MADE IT A GREAT EXPERIENCE; ESPECIALLY FOR MY BROTHER AND I WHO WERE JUST KIDS BEGINNING A JOURNEY [RUNNING AWAY].

HOW ABOUT THE GRANDDADDY VIETNAM ERA ZODIAC SEA WOLF *NON-DATE WORLD FAIR VERSION? THE FIRST THAT WENT TO VIETNAM ?

IT WAS THE BIG SEND OFF AT THE NY WORLDS FAIR IN 1964 THAT BOOSTED THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF BRAND AND PROMOTED THE STATEMENTS OF ITS DESIGN, RELIABILITY, RUGGEDNESS, DEPENDABILITY AND PRICE OF 100.00.

FROM THE WORLDS FAIR TO US GOVERNMENT MILITARY PX/BX INSTALLATIONS,  THE MARKETING COMMOTION WAS A SUCCESS AND IT SOON CONVINCED MANY US SOLDIERS, INCLUDING ARMY ***GREEN BERET, PILOTS, NAVY SEALS AND MEMBERS OF UNDERWATER DEMOLITION TEAMS, THAT THE SEA WOLF WAS NOT A PAMPERED TIME PIECE.

YET IT WAS GREEN BERET "ADVISORS", COVERT OPERATIVES AND SUPPORT TROOPS OF THE EARLY 1960'S WHO WOULD PROVE THE RUGGED REPUTATION OF THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF IN THE JUNGLES AND WATERWAYS OF VIETNAM AND MAKE THE SEA WOLF POPULAR AMONG THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TROOPS THAT BEGAN ARRIVING IN 1965.

THOUGH THE UNITED STATES ACTIVELY ASSISTED THE FRENCH FROM 1945 TO 1955, AND HAD ADVISORS AND AIR FORCE PERSONAL ACTIVELY INVOLVED,  THE US VIETNAM CONFLICT DATES FROM 1959 TO APRIL 30, 1975. 

DURING THE KENNEDY PRESIDENCY, THE GREEN BERET ORGANIZATION WAS FORMED AND ADVISERS WERE SENT TO ASSIST THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE. THESE "ADVISERS" ACTUALLY FOUGHT ALONG SIDE SOUTH VIETNAMESE SOLDIERS.

IN 1964, THE NORTH VIETNAMESE ALLEGEDLY FIRED UPON TWO US SHIPS IN THE GULF OF TONKIN. IN RESPONSE TO THE GULF OF TONKIN INCIDENT OF AUGUST 2 & 4 1964, PRESIDENT JOHNSON ESCALATED THE VIETNAM SUPPORT MISSION TO A CONFLICT BY SENDING U.S. GROUND TROOPS TO VIETNAM. IT TOOK 6 MONTHS FOR RESOLUTIONS TO PASS AND THE U.S. MILITARY TO RESPOND.

ON MARCH 8, 1965, THE FIRST US TROOPS ARRIVED IN VIETNAM. 3500 U.S. MARINES LANDED NEAR DA NANG.

* DATE VERSIONS WERE INTRODUCED CLOSE TO THE 1970' BUT THEY CAUSE THE OFF SET CANON PINION TO PREMATURELY WEAR OUT; AND THE PART IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

** EARLIER VERSIONS USED RADIUM LATER TRITIUM

*** "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."

NOTE SOME PICS SHOW DUST ON CRYSTAL
