The photos presented below are of the actual item for sale. Kindly study them carefully because what you see is what you will get. We try our best to describe watches as accurately as we can that's why we present them visually & literally. In case we missed a few points, you are welcome to ask questions.
This ZODIAC Astrographic has retained all of its original parts throughout the years since its manufacture way back in the 1970s. Almost all of its parts (dial, detailing, steel fittings) are in such excellent condition that its flawed crystal stands out! But, we believe this can be easily accepted or remedied by any serious ZODIAC collector, who can see through one imperfection & appreciate the true value & beauty of this timepiece!
ZODIAC's design innovation of the floating red dot (represents seconds) & floating hands (represents hours & minutes) for ZODIAC Astrographic won the 1972 "Montres et Bijoux" exhibition.
