    I’m pretty sure it’s Bakelite. It is encased in a plated brass bezel ring. The plating is worn so the brass shows through a bit (as can be seen in the picture).

    Here is a link with a ton of Sea Wolf watch pics and advertisements:

    I think my watch leaked at some point and my dad had it repaired, so there is a bit of corrosion a few of the markers on the watch face. I had it restored recently by a vintage Zodiac specialist, and it is super clean now (and runs just a couple seconds fast per day). I think it’s nicer than most of the ones I have seen on various write up and auction sites. The box is long gone and my dad couldn’t find the original bracelet when he gave it to me, but I have the original receipt and the manual that came with it...

      I'd be interested to know the retail price he paid for it back then. I'm going to guess $35.

          I was pleasantly surprised when I received it. I had a credit at Todd Snyder and the Beekman kept getting recommended on Dappered, so I figured what the heck. I wear it a lot more than I thought I might.

                  $49.50 in May 1972 at a PX in the UK. That is about $300 today...
