Gorgeous watch,  8) but oh man are you in for a rude surprise! The members here squawk like chickens run over by a 10 speed bike when a watch is offered for more than $300 bucks... Nice of you to post it, but if you manage to sell it to someone on here for anything close to what your'e asking, I will pass out from pure shock!

A man's price is a man's price. The buyer's may be different though.

I like what my grandfather used to say, "A man's got three prices, wantin, askin, and takin."

Good luck! I once sold a Zodiac 3 register chrono with GMT function for that price.

Sharp watch.  I need one for my collection, but the lump of coal that I will get in my stocking this year will not quite cover it.....

I am happy to say that this excellent and pristine watch will soon be on its way from Germany to Toronto.  ;D

Thanks to Compi for offering up this fantastic vintage Zodiac chronograph.

Cheers,

Thanks Butch. I had originally seen this watch for sale on the Chrono 24 website, and communicated with the seller then. I kept looking at this baby, and how it is so pristine without any scratches that I can see from the pics. I finally broke down and coughed up the $$$ to add it to my collection. What the hell, you only live once right? The seller is a very polite and professional individual in our communications. I am always impressed by people who can speak and write in two or more languages, and do so well, as Compi does. Now I have some NFL playoffs to watch! Cheers and have a great Sunday. LEX.

Butch, small world. I think I have your old GMT chrono. I got it from BWG a year or two ago and it looks identical to the one you have under "My Watches". I never noticed it until you mentioned it in this thread.
It's the highlight of my collection!
