 :wtf :laugh: :butchLOL;  what an abortion!! another redial from INDIA--i have never seen this seller offer a zodiac with an ORIGINAL dial. when they do a redial they just MAKE UP some wild looking piece of junk, LIKE THIS ONE!! back of case is polished to DEATH, bezel is bad looking. seller states " original as described"--- good disclaimer language!!! check out the corner of the date window, looks like they did not refinish that!  it is the later 21 jewel movement. $350. , no way-- maybe 50.00 to someone who just had to have a zodiac watch.  just watch, some un- educated buyer will get it and own a true one of a kind watch!! :SB: :#C :#rant

 :rofl "hermetic" can be correct, just not on this watch. i have a late 1950s zodiac that states hermetic on the dial. this seller just adds anything they can think of to the dial!! look at his other offerings, and some of the strange colors, etc.

Well, you could give him the $348 he is looking for and then buy 321467225179 for $150 and have it back to almost original.... Both offer free shipping!

 NOS? :sici

In the title of his listing he called it a "ZODIAC SEA DATE".  I think he's the one that was "seadated" when he put that watch together and when he wrote the ad for it!  :lolz;
