Well, since I'm new here I feel I have to show things... ;)

So here it is another Zodiac that I believe is not very often seen: an automatic bumper with movement ZODIAC 1225A ("based" on an AS 1298). Hope you like it.

Not by me. And looking closely at it I'd say it's never been re-dialed. It's just my pic, that makes it look a bit better and doesn't show the marks... :)

BTW... can we consider the red arrow in this watch a precedent of the red dot?

Nah! Nice thri though. To be honest, I am unsre that second hand is original. I need to get back home and check some of my old pics of bumpers I have had over the years. But hell, it could be. It sure looks cool.

Why not? Who knows the origin of the red dot idea???  ;D ;D ;D

Second hand is a bit thiner than hour one, but looks similar, and uniformly worn.

Anyway, looks quite "original" if it's not and price was good. These catalogs will sure help.

Yes, I was talking about the red second hand. The hour and minute hand is correct for that model.

Second hands can get mangled during a service if the watchmaker is careless so that is how the wrong one can get on a watch.
