THE MODERN SEA WOLF WAS INTRODUCED IN 1964 AT THE WORLDS FAIR
ROCK WENT TO THE FAIR AND ACTUALLY TOURED ALL THE FREE EXHIBITS
INCLUDING THE ZODIAC EXHIBIT THOUGH HE WAS OT IMPRESSED AT THE TIME.. LOL

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+.

wpeB2.jpg (70151 bytes)

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 “ADVISERS”, 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 ADVISERS 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.

HOW ABOUT A  VIETNAM ERA HACKING ZODIAC SEA WOLF ?

THIS OFFER IS FOR A VINTAGE  PX HACKING VERSION OF THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF NON-DATER IN STAINLESS STEEL .

THE 1969 ZODIAC SEA WOLF WAS AVAILABLE AT MILITARY PX AND ON R&R IN 7 COUNTRIES. THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF WAS UTILIZED BY MANY US, AUSTRALIAN AND KOREAN 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 WAS AWARDED BY 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.

ZODIAC

“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 & dial 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.”

MMASH, 8th Army.unit shoulder patch

 

8th Amy

The soldier who owned this zodiac and strap served with the 8th Army before going to Vietnam

File:Eighth US Army - Korea.png

The 8th Army had the rare distinction of servinge in Asia from 1940’s through the near end [1972] of the Vietnam War. The 1940’s saw the 8th participate in 60 missions and landings in the Pacific during WWII. Then the 8th was given the main role and mission of the Occupation of Japan proper; then the 8th was the FIRST and main INITIAL US Forces in the Korean War; then it was paceled out to VIETNAM from the mid 1960s to 1971.

The unit first activated on 10 June 1944 in the United States, being commanded by Lieutenant General Robert Eichelberger. The Eighth Army took part in many of the amphibious landings in the Southwest Pacific Theater of World War II, eventually participating in no less than sixty of them.

The first mission of the Eighth Army, in September 1944, was to take over from the U.S. Sixth Army in New Guinea, New Britain, the Admiralty Islands and on Morotai, in order to free up the Sixth Army to engage in the Philippines Campaign (1944–45).

IN 1946, Eighth Army assumed responsibility for occupying all of Japan for four years. By 1971, the 7th Infantry Division was withdrawn from South Korea, along with the command units of I Corps, which were moved across the Pacific Ocean to Fort Lewis, Washington

In June 1950 North Korea invaded South Korea. To stem the North Korean advance, the 8th forces in Japan were shipped to South Korea, but, due to their lack of training and equipment, the first units, were completely destroyed by the North Koreans.

The defeat of the U.S. Eighth Army resulted in the longest retreat of any American military unit in history.

Additional units of the Eighth Army with better equipment arrived and General Ridgway forcefully restored Eighth Army to combat effectiveness.

Under his leadership, it halted the Chinese advance at the battles of Chipyong-ni and Wonju, then counter-attacked the Chinese, taking Seoul again, and driving the communist forces back above the 38th parallel into North Korea. And to formed a firm front that the North Koreans failed to break.

Eighth Army was reorganized, the I Corps and the IX Corps were reactivated in the United States and then shipped to Korea to assume command of Eighth Army’s subordinate division.

By the 1960s, only the I Corps, consisting of the 7th Infantry Division and the 2nd Infantry Division, remained as part of the Eighth Army.

The Eighth Army remained in South Korea, but the forces under its command were continually reduced as the demands of the U.S. Army in Vietnam increased.

Men and Equipment from what was left of the 8th were transferred to other units then serving one year tours in Vietnam.

By the 1960s, only the I Corps, consisting of the 7th Infantry Division and the 2nd Infantry Division, remained as part of the Eighth Army.
