Offering a very nice Stainless Steel Swiss Made Fortis Skylark model # 6259 from the 60's. The 21 jewel Fortis signed ETA 2632 automatic movement is running good and keeping good time. Service history is unknown and I always recommend a service when service history is unknown. Date at 6:00 is quickset. Dial is a very nice dark blue. No dings or dents in case, just a few light scratches due to careful wear. Comes on a new black leather band. Included is the original ( in poor shape) leather band with a Fortis signed buckle that was on the watch when I purchased the watch. This Fortis Skylark was probably worn very little since the original band had never been replaced.

35mm lug to lug
12.7mm thick
Fortis signed crown, back, dial & movement

Ask BWG! / Zodiac Triple Date Moonphase questions
« Last post by Krash01 on June 04, 2019, 02:42:26 PM »
Greetings from Hungary!

I recently picked up a nice Zodiac Triple Date Moonphase Automatic, and get it serviced at my local watchmaker.

It works and looks great, though I have a few questions:

-When it was made? In the '50s or 60s?
-as I've read the moonpahse should change at 12pm. Mine changes an hour earlier, 11am. Is that a problem?
-When I shake the watch vertically with face up (so not in the direction where the rotor should move) it feels that movement is a bit loose, I hear a "wobble" sound. However, my watchmaker checked it, and it isn't loose. He said that it is normal. Is it?

Thanks in advance!

General Zodiac Discussion / Kingline Solid 9k

 :woohoo;
This is just going to be a quick and dirty post.
Recently won a circa '76 Kingline at auction that nobody else bid on.  Not sure why, but I'm thinking it may have had something to do with the case back and lack of Zodiac signature/engravings.

I did some research and with the help of David Boettcher, his website (vintagewatchstraps.com) and my own powers of deduction, I came to the conclusion that this particular Zodiac was an English market piece and all components present were correct in regards to its original presentation..., my dear Watson.  (I may be proven wrong later, who knows)

I'll get more into the details later but for now I wanted to get some photos up before I move forward with a service and lose the item for a bit. 
I fit a vintage two tone Forstner mesh bracelet for the time being.  I think it suits this watch fairly well but have plans for a more straight forward gold NSA I'll upload later.

My initial reaction; I'm dumbfounded how these don't get more attention.  The textured dial, printing, markers, but mostly that dial!!  To me it's just bonkers. :SB:

Yes, and thanks.

Let me add that most sellers that do this give a discount to the members here though.

O.K. so listing an item for auction here while it runs at the other place is O.K., so long as it isn't mentioned here ???

Just making sure...

Correct ???

This is allowed as long as there is not reference to the auction. Ahem.

So unfortunate that a lot of amazing pieces were just melted back then. Not that you can blame the people for doing it. The price of gold was just too good.
