New to Zodiac, got a aerospace GMT date question
« on: February 18, 2018, 03:41:54 PM »
Hi,

I just bought my new aerospace GMT and are really happy with it.
I will not use it as my everyday watch and because of that it will be times when it stops between the uses, I'm almost positive that it don't have the "quick date" function.
So I wonder if I need to turn the dials all around until I get the right date or If its ok to turn the time to 12 so it turn the date and then turn it back a couple of hours and the back to 12 again or if it is bad for the watch to be turned counter clockwise?

Thanks in advance
Anders

Anders, pictures of YOUR watch would help us to make sure if it does have a quick set.
If it does not, semi quick set is available on all vintage Zodiac GMTs. Rotate crown between 20:30 and 00:00 back and forth, it will change date much faster than rotating crown all the way around.

Yes, this one based on caliber 75 and does not have quick set feature.
