Info needed please.............
« on: February 23, 2011, 02:28:19 AM »
Zodiac Olympos with gold or gold plated bezel...................  what can anyone tell me about them?
Is the bezel plated, G/F or?  Size?  Worth?  Dates made?
I have never seen any Zodiac with a Green dial before.........  did they actually come with a Green dial or was this one re-done at one point or other?
What type of metal is under the bezel?

Some of these questions are answered elsewhere on the site.

I have never seen a green dial, just silver and gold colors.
Case should be marked between lugs. Solid gold ones were marked as such as well. (There were both.)
Most Zodiacs (and other brands I think) are gold plating over stainless steel.
Worth is what a buyer is willing to pay. This one? With the green dial? $50?
A normal plated one with a gold dial, decent shape, signed crown, good dial, and recently serviced, about $300? More if in really great condition.
