[Identify] Dr. Pepper Zodiac
« on: August 18, 2017, 06:17:42 PM »
Hello everybody,

I am a new member here.  This Zodiac watch recently came into my possession.  I don't know much about Zodiac watches and I was unable to find much information about them.  I was hoping somebody here who is knowledgeable about these watches could tell me about this watch.

Love it. It is a nice Zodiac chronograph. Looks right and complete, as on me.

Welcome aboard!!

Dr. Pepper paid Zodiac to put their logo on the dial for them. Promotional or employee awards most likely. That is from the 70's. I have to admit, that is the first chrono I have ever seen with their logo on it though. Most were dress watches or Astrographics.

Hi Lumeer.  Very cool Chronograph  :twothumbsup

That Chronograph is a little unique in regards to Zodiac's line in that its movement should be a Zodiac signed Valjoux 234 (a Valjoux 23 with a date).  Since the Valjoux 72 was based on the 23, the 23 is obviously a very nice movement.  It looks like the dial and tach ring are in very nice shape as well, which is a huge plus.

A great find  :cool;
