The point is, if you do not know the service history then get it serviced.

That one is from the 1970's and given the band was in North America originally. Just curious, given the flag, what country did you find it in?

I found it here in Spain ( Madrid ).

A friend of mine that knows that i love vintage watches found it and sold it to me. It was from an uncle of him.

The rest of history is completely unknown  :)

Dear Sirs,

I just found a vintage zodiac hermetic chronograph, picture attached.

I opened it and it contains a zodiac 89 which as far i reasearched the internet is equivalent to a valjoux 232.

It has his original bracelet signed JB champion but i was unable to find any other watch like this one on sale or published elsewhere and this is where i had the idea to post it here so you can guide me about knowing more about this watch.

This is the picture!

Hope you liked it.

Honestly it depends, as I have seen a couple variants for the original Olympos.  It is just a friction fit domed acrylic, dependent on size (around 30.5/30.6 I believe), but some have a flat trim ring and I have had others that required a stepped trim ring for proper fitment.  Why the variation in fit for the same model, who knows.  Some of the other Zodiac models are worse for numbers of crystal variants, while looking relatively identical on the outside.

Ask BWG! / Original Olympos crystal size
« Last post by al_kaholik on April 15, 2020, 02:55:52 AM »
Morning,

Anybody have any idea what size an original Olympos crystal is? I'm preparing for the worst as the one I've recently bought has a couple of deep burns. It looks like it might be an armed crystal, but without having it apart I won't know.

Going to break out the polywatch first, then Micromesh if I'm not happy. I can't see me removing all of the marks, but I'm confident an improvement can be made. Least intrusive job first.
