ZODIAC's design innovation of the floating red dot (represents seconds) & floating hands (represents hours & minutes) won the 1972 "Montres et Bijoux" exhibition.

This mega-rare ZODIAC Astro II sports a "mystery dial", which re-designs the floating hands of its forerunner (Astrographic). Moving/floating hands set within a deep case create a shadowbox effect!

EXTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *VERY GOOD condition (83-87%): The watch shows what might be considered normal wear by a careful owner who wore the watch regularly. Scratches are evident, but no nicks or dings. May have replacement parts. A sound, attractive presentation overall.

INTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *EXCELLENT condition (88-92%): Working perfectly, needs no repair or service.

*condition descriptives mainly based on the Timezone Grading System
