Maybe my next Zodiac will be..
« on: January 30, 2014, 01:56:12 PM »
Really liking the powergraphics.
Might seem a little silly to have a "gas gauge" on a watch,  but I think is pretty neat idea.
Anyone on here have one?
Anyone else thinking of adding to their collection? If so,  what don't you have that you'd like?

I love'em! But I gave up on them. Just cannot find the gauge parts any longer. And all the donor watches had the same issue.

Take look at my watches. The Jump Hour had to have a gear made for it. And the two regularotrs were gone a long time before they came back. I don't wear them, they sit in the drawer.

It is good that you asked.

Another thought Doogie, you said Powergraphics. I have never held one but am pretty sure they were all manual wind watches that came later. Check the catalogs to be sure though.

The AUTOgrapgic was an automatic and that was the model I was referring to. Have you seen this?

Oh my god!  A differential, I didn't count but 4 or 5 wheels,  pinions. I would have never envisioned that much would've had to go into it.
And they're problematic. Damn now I afraid to pursue.
Thanks for the link, very informative.
