Title: Info on first zodiac, windup, 14k gold, diamonds
Post by: joe on August 16, 2010, 11:32:34 AM
Hey All - I picked up my first zodiac as a gift for my wife, I have no other info about it. But its a wind up, 14k gold, and a 4 digit serial number on the mirror polished back.

I attached a pic.

Thanks for any info. I need a zodiac for myself now!

I thought maybe the box and back might help to identify the watch.

I am keeping my eye on some Olympos's on ebay...
Thanks,

That was a very expensive dress watch from the later 60's or early 70's. Minimum value today is the scrap of the gold and diamonds, or what a buyer is willing to pay for it. Personally I have been looking for one of those for years. NICE find.
