Does anyone have one of these? (I know, there is one on eBay now.)

No and I've only seen one other in the past year for sale. It seems odd to not have at least one sub dial to tell how many times the second hand has been around. Also, does the second hand move like a normal one, showing seconds or does it only move when using the push buttons? My guess would be the latter, but wasn't sure. Maybe this would've been better under the Clebar name since they were more into stopwatches.

 :what i have never seen one of these. very odd set up, a stop watch and that is ALL. i guess you could leave the stop watch going all the time to have running seconds. a lot of people i have seen do this with a crono thinking it IS the second hand!! another odd part of zodiac history for sure. anyone know what movt. these have, its got to be a manual wind.

Well, I do now! Cut a deal with the seller on eBay. I have been looking for one of these for many years. Moved on this one because of a statement he made in the auction, "IF YOU WANT A HIGH QUALITY WATCH THAT NONE OF YOUR FRIENDS HAE EVER SEEN BEFORE OR MAY NEVER SEE AGAIN, THIS IS THE ONE."

Imagine showing up at the watch club meeting wearing something like this.

Dunno yet, never had one! But the seller said:

TOP PUSHER STOPS SECONDS HAND UNTIL YOU RELEASE PUSHER AND IT STARTS GOING AGAIN
BOTTOM PUSHER MAKES SECONDS HAND FLYBACK, CHRONO FUNCTION

My mistake, I thought you already had it.
I wonder if the top pusher is supposed to work like that or it's not functioning properly.
Either way, looking forward to seeing some photos.

I think it does work this way. Once I get it I will send it off to BWG as service history is unknown and then post some After pics. I also want to get the hands and dial re-lummed.
