i recall that using the correctors between 9PM and 3AM is a no-no. Hopefully BWG or Yuriy will chime in...and if you don't know the service history, pls, pls pls get it serviced, It has a lot of moving parts that they don't make anymore.

General Zodiac Discussion / Setting a 60s vintage Automatic Triple Date Moonphase
« Last post by CAPROIC1949 on December 29, 2018, 12:49:55 PM »
Hello, I recently purchased a 60s vintage Triple Date Moonphase Zodiac and need to set the day & date. The watch does not respond to my depressing the buttons on the side of the case. I put the hands at just after midnight and I can get the date to start to advance in response to the button, but it won't click over. I cannot get the day to respond at all. Couldn't find instructions on line so here I am at the font of all things Zodiac. Thanks in advance.

ANOTHER informed collector! Just by asking before buying.

Its always better to ask before you buy nowadays.  Online sellers will often say "100% original", "NOS", "Mint", when none of those are the case. Questioning them about their statements AFTER the purchase will usually just start the excuse and deflection stream  ::)

Many thanks for the information.

If I thought I could get hold of a NOS inner bezel I would maybe take a shot at it but in the absence of that it just isn't worth the money.

Happy New Year.

Neil.

Almost forgot, the Minute-Hour-Chrono hand are not original either.  The register hands may be replacements as well as I think their shape is not correct, but the picture is too poor to be able to be able to tell.

Definitely not all original, as are most of the watches that come out of Peru and Uruguay.  That inner bezel is to an Omega 176.0010 Yachting.  I have worked on both the Omega and the Zodiac (I have the Zodiac Chrono in my collection) and they have similar size crystals/dials, so that is how they were able to swap them and still have it appear to be a correct fitment.

Hi,

Can anyone confirm whether or not the inner bezel on this Zodiac is original. I cannot find any reference to a yachting Zodiac from this era. The hands are not original, I know but the bezel?????

Cheers,

Neil.
