General Zodiac Discussion / Re: Aeronaut GMT?

Depends from model, originality, condition and service history.
If serviced, original and clean, 500 euro is not a bad price.

Got her back from being serviced :)

Hi everyone,

I'm new here and recently found this exact Zodiac Aeronaut for sale in a vintage shop here in Budapest. What do you guys think the right price would be for this watch? They are selling it for 500 euro.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks gents.  :sm3


I am thinking that the lume has fallen out of the hands at some point and then been totally removed?  Agree?

Yep, would have been fully lumed to start.  But as I tell collectors all of the time, the lume (if original) is often the most fragile thing on a vintage watch......

Subscribed!

Very cool catalogues, etc.

I didn't see the hermetics in the catalogues much, just not one of their top lines?

Here is Vintage Zodiac catalog section available for reasonable subscription: http://www.zodiaccatalogs.com/
There you can explore all known information about that time frame.
As I aware, these watches were available on various leather and metal bands.

 Thanks for your reply!


. I didn't expect I would find anything original. But i wanted to know when you guys with real depth of knowledge look at this, does a particular band style stand out as more "correct"?

Now, is this under the dress watch category, even though it has a second hand? Does that mean it needs
a leather strap? Black?  white stitching, rally, or gator or does it matter?

Or would a steel bracelet be "ok"?

That sort of thing.

Thank you!

Landeron movement?  My best guess would be 1950s.  Every Zodiac Chrono that I have had in of that style was a Landeron (not signed Zodiac on the chrono bridge, blank) and was from the 50s.  Most of the 1940s pieces were square pusher, and the 1960s pieces started a different style trend from models like this.

Whatever you like is your best bet. Almost no original leather band left in existence.
