Difference between Jet Aeronaut and Aerospace Jet
« on: February 11, 2015, 06:24:41 AM »
Hello

I bought a Zodiac Jet Aeronaut a couple of years ago but the dial is in very poor condition.
I bought on Ebay a dial that I thought was the right one but I was in reality an Aerospace Jet dial.
When I received the dial I realized that the size on the Aerospace Jet dial is smaller than one on the Jet Aeronaut  :yeller

So I would like to know if the Aerospace Jet is really smaller than the Jet Aeronaut and if there's some other differences between the 2 models (movement, case, crown ....)

Thanks in advance for your answer

Regards

Philippe

I don't share a lot from the catalogs anymore but this is one thing I left up as I, like you, had the same problem and had to do my research. There were 3 different versions of that model over the years, with different case numbers which means other parts are different between models. That model was around for almost 20 years.

Now, let me ask you a question and maybe you can help me with something. This will be in two parts. Please view the link above. Had you found that page before entering your question?

Hello Butch,

Yes I saw the pictures you posted on the site before I created this topic.
Honestly before having the watch and the dial in front of me I didn't realize that Jet Aeronaut and Aerospace Jet was 2 different models and I didn't pay attention to this "detail" when I bought the dial on Ebay :-(

I will post some pictures of the watch and the dial very soon and will try to measure both with my clock maker.

to add some detail my Jet Aeronaut seems to be a 60's model and the dial a 70's model
The original is white and the second is black with the Zodiac logo.
