Well, I've asked the seller twice now when the watch was last serviced, and I have gotten no answers, so I assume the answer to "When was this last serviced?" is "No."  :laugh:

I will be emailing you about your BWG ;)

Hey Joe.  That model is a friction fit bezel, it does not have a retention spring.  The bezel will have to be tightened by someone that knows how to.  The click (round ruby jewel w/ spring) helps the bezel to stay in place, but does not tighten it itself.

General Zodiac Discussion / Aerospace Loose Pepsi bezel

Was wondering does anyone know if there is a  spacer under the bakelite bezel of a Aerospace, my bezel is kinda loose and spins freely, the little ruby is there but I have to press down to feel the clicks

Thanks Joe

Thanks for the reply, Butch! I have messaged the seller asking if they know when the watch was last serviced. I would probably get it serviced anyway, but I'm curious  ;)

Yes, that is authentic. Also a great price as long as you realize the first thing you need to do is have it serviced. The value of this is over $1,000 to the right buyer. Many do not like gold plating due to wear but this one is in great shape.

So recently, I got it in my mind that I just had to have a triple date moon phase with black dial and gold case, indices, and hands. Some nice-to-have features are a center pointer date with the hand or tip a color different from the minute/hour hands, moon with a face, and month and day windows in a non-English language (didn't matter much which language; as an amateur linguist, I would be pleased by anything other than my native tongue).

Quite a wishlist, I confess! The dial and case-color combinations alone were near impossible to find in a new manufacture watch, so I turned my efforts towards vintage watched. After a couple months of searching, I finally discovered this watch: 293127814602

It just about meets all my wishes! So, the next thing I had to do was learn absolutely everything I could about Zodiac and this model in particular. I finally found this wonderful trove of information and began reading and perusing the gallery. I'm beginning to think this is practically the only place on the English-speaking Web that contains real information about vintage Zodiacs!

Anyway, as the subject notes, the month and day wheels are in French (though the item description incorrectly states "Spanish"). I asked the seller for movement photos, and they provided some showing a 74 calibre in apparently very good condition. As far as I can tell from my limited knowledge, this watch seems legitimate. But, through all my Web searching and in the gallery on this site, I have not seen a Zodiac triple date moon phase with month/day wheels other than English. I was wondering if the experts of this forum could comment on the authenticity/validity of this particular example, and (if allowed) to comment on the asking price as well.

Thanks! If all goes well, I hope this can be the start of a nice Zodiac collection of my own  :twothumbsup

Thanks, but that is a link for a new Fossil Zodiac SSW link. I'm looking for a 1996 first generation sawtooth Super Sea Wolf. But thank you for the help.
