Vintage Zodiac Chronograph
« on: August 07, 2012, 09:42:26 AM »
Hi All,

 :new

I purchased my (one and only) Zodiac in 1970 at the Post Exchange while I was in the Navy.  The old girl has been through a lot, but never let me down.  It looks a little rough these days, and has sat in the jewelry box for over thirty years.  The Chronograph buttons are missing, and the crystal has a small crack at eleven o'clock.  I hope to have the watch serviced and restored.  I took it out a few days ago, wound it, and it still keeps great time.  But the Chronograph functions do not work - hope that is tied to the missing buttons.

Cell phone photo shown below.  If I can get it restored, I will take before and after pictures with the Canon.

Nice web site - informative.

Thanks for having me.

Jerry

I really like that Zodiac and it should look great once it has a proper service.

Do you have the original band that came with the watch?

Thank you Sea Wolf.  I have already pinged Butch and just dropped the watch off USPS Priority to BWG.  He should have it in a couple of days.

No, I wish I still had the band.  During an "excursion" the band was damaged beyond repair and I replaced it.  At least I didn't lose the watch.  This weekend on eBay, I bid on a vintage Zodiac stainless "bracelet" band but lost.  >:D I thought I had it covered, but someone came in apparently a few seconds before the close and out-bid me.

I apologize for the long delay, we have been in a total state of flux for quite awhile.  Picture of the fully restored Zodiac
