Introduction & General Spacetronic Questions
« on: October 20, 2017, 12:00:34 PM »
Hello All

I have just found this forum and look forward to sharing some of my experiences.  I have just purchased my first Zodiac a Spacetronic (photos below).  I am not completely new to the whole vintage watch thing and have a small collection of Rados among which are a few with the same movement as is in the Spacetronic.

I have had experience in bringing these back to life and when looking for an Astrograph found this and had to have it.  I am particularly fond of the crown at 2o'clock -- my Rado Marstron has its crown at 4 o'clock.

So a few quick questions

- how does one remove the case back to change the battery, i have tried with stickyball but didn't want to force anything?
- What sort of strap or bracelet would this have left the factory with?
- is my variant standard, rare, exceptional, etcetera?  I like so wouldn't be worried with it was common.

I am not an expert on the electric models. I don't even have any here I can check. I would be surprised if this was anything more than a snap on back. Try to get a knife under it and gently pry up and see if it moves.

That is a 1971 model and is in that catalog. One of several electric models they made, no more rarer than the others I would think. As for the band, that is why we have the catalog site, yes?
