Lume look healthy as I can see. Would suggest to don't touch the dial and hands.

Hm. Possible.
I can see two scenarios. Factory ran out of old 699 screw down cases with countdown bezel and  issued some 1624 movements with old dials in newer 10ATM snap back case (they are completely compatible).
Or later marriage of older movement and newer case.
Obviously we need more statistic.

Nice specimen! We already talked about the crown. I would just relum all the hands and not worry about aging them. Your watchmaker should be able to measure and get a replacement crystal. Shouldn't cost much.

Hi everybody!

Here's Fliegerchrono a newbie from The Netherlands on this forum. I am a watch collector with quite a larger collection about 35 pieces, lotsa soviet vintage watches, some modern day Swiss, some chinese, some european vintage and I am the guy who came up with the concept of the Aramar Long Beach Racing Chronograph.

Today I received my first Zodiac, a lovely 60's Aerospace GMT, looks great, bezel insert is intact, dial looks untouched, runs nicely!

A couple of things need to be done:

-A new acrylic crystal, this one has some "crackling" and they are not too expensive too replace, my watchmaker can measure it and order a new one, or does anyone here have the measurements and/or an order number?

-Since the lume on the hands is more black/grey then at the end of the indices a bit of new (yet coloured too look a bit odler) lume on the hands would look great

-I would like a new crown, signed (if not I will use a generic one) does anybody know where I can get one and/or what the measurements are?


Cheers !

Doubtful. Looks to me like they lost the bezel and modified a later one to fit it. That is what I had to do for this one.

Could it be a 10ATM transition model? Lets say from screw down 699 case to snap back 699 case?

Sounds to me like that could be a fine family heirloom to pass along.
