    Sea wolf by harvester?

    I picked up a watch at an antique shop a few days ago and cant find any thing about it. the dial says Sea Wolf by Harvester and antimagnetic, enermatic mainspring and swiss made. It is fairly small and came on an old spiedel? band.It has a screw down case back with a one jewel pin lever movt. One of the pins on the lever or fork is broken so when it is wound the energy is automatically released and the hands spin really fast.

    So can this be fixed and do you know anything about the company?

    Pics! Pics of the insides are very important. However, based on your description this is probably a fairly inexpensive pin lever movement -- the pre-quartz equivalent of the quartz movement today. It can be fixed... but you could probably buy a better working watch for the cost of repair. So, unless the watch has personal heirloom value, it has probably reached he end of it's useful life...

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Of course, Sea Wolf was a famous Zodiac model - so it wouldn't surprise me if their lawyers had stamped on the usage of the name by another company fairly sharpish. But sorry we can't help at all.

    Yes, the pin can be replaced and was once a common repair on this type of watch, but as Eeeb says,
    the repair would cost many times the value of the watch. Plus the escape and fourth wheel pivots are possibly stripped
    as the watch has been run down at high speed on probably dry bearings.
    Sorry but I can't help with the make.
