This mega-rare ZODIAC Astro II sports a mystery dial, which is altogether different from its forerunner (Astrographic). Layers of floating hands within a thick case create a shadowbox effect!

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

EXTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *EXCELLENT condition (88-92%): Evidence of use is visible to the unaided eye. Scratches are light, but more numerous than "near mint".

INTERNAL CONDITION: This watch is in *NEAR MINT condition (93-97%): working perfectly, keeping good time & needs nothing.
