Gold Point automatic Zodiac with a blue face
« on: May 04, 2010, 04:17:01 PM »
I have a Gold Point automatic Zodiac with a blue face (a ‘modern, post-1990’ Zodiac).  I understand that the service resource that Butch located does not service these type of Zodiac watches.

I contacted www.zodiacwatches.com and sent the watch to their authorized service center in the U.S., Metro Service Center in Dallas, Texas.  Their response:  They were unable to repair the watch as they did not have the bezel, movement, or any parts.   

Can anyone recommend a repair source?

Thanks very much.

Sorry, not really as no one seems to have the parts for them. I will send you an email though.

Prcrstn8 mentioned (in another post) that Ron Gordon Watches in NYC repairs Zodiacs.  Has anyone have any feedback about him?

Thanks very much.

I know that Zodiac doesn't sell parts but for the service center to not have parts strikes me as odd.

Here's what I suggest as long as you understand that YMMV, IMHO, and WTF rules apply -

If the movement is an ETA or Valjoux than you're in luck either through the movement maker or a Best-Fit catalog. I'm willing to bet it's an ETA movement.

Other resources for parts are available, Dash-To comes to mind as I use them all the time.

Find a local watchmaker - not a jeweler - and show him what you have. Since the spare parts issues have gotten worse for a number of brands, watchmakers have become pretty resourceful.

Good luck with it.
