Yes, the Catalogs site is having issues right now and is actively being worked on.
I will let you know when the issues are resolved.

Thanks for your patience.

2 years ago I espoused the idea with fellow watch enthusiasts of creating a Wiki for watches, a font of all things horological - collating and storing all the information from watch forums, websites and in particular the contents of the heads of those extraordinarily knowledgeable collectors. The idea of a site, open to all, which would allow both those experienced and new to the watch world to educate and learn, but also to be entertained and maybe amused. Very Reithian of me. And so I went back to the day-job (medical support services so am doing my bit for the war right now).

Fast forward to today- the world is suddenly a very different place. I find myself ensconced by the beach in South Carolina - in exile and lockdown. My watch collection ( and all my reference book library) is 1000 miles away at ground zero for Covid in the US - New York. My home in England unapproachable. Worse, the wine has run out and the state of South Carolina does not allow home delivery (I know - first-world problem eh?!). So having my evenings free and sober, I decided to finally do it.

I have created The Chronopedia Club. It can be found here: https://chronopedia.club/Main_Page

Please bear in mind that this is only 8 days old! I have started to put some flesh on the bare bones and am going to throw myself on the mercy of the crowd by asking you to take a look and provide feedback, maybe content and pics too. This is going to be a source for ALL things watch, so its going to take years to put together. If anyone would like to help me with the Zodiac entry in this then let me know! I cant even get to my own collection right now which is very frustrating!

You can set up a basic editing account by clicking CREATE ACCOUNT top right on the main page. It could be a specific model or the entire history. Its all wiki-based so new pages and links just keep being created for it. If anyone wants help then please let contact me : mail to:admin@chronopedia.club

I could do with a lot of help in certain areas - for example diving watch terminology for the Glossary here https://chronopedia.club/A-Z - really anywhere that  someone will have a lot more knowledge than me (which is pretty much all of it). I have military watch friends getting involved now so its starting to grow...

Thanks for reading and if you want to get involved please don't hesitate! This could be a legacy for future generations of Zodiac collectors!

And stay safe...

I'm having issues as well.

I'm getting this message when I log in:

The requested URL /cgi-bin/sblogin/login.cgi was not found on this server.

Could it be my subscription expired?

Hi All,

Is anybody else having issues accessing Zodiac Catalogs? I've signed up but am unable to get access - just keep getting error messages.

Thanks in advance.

I saw this Zodiac on the Internet... / Re: Zodiac/Zenith Port Royal?
« Last post by Cobber on April 07, 2020, 02:34:58 PM »
Was just doing some internet searches out of boredom, Mondia-Zenith-Movado all joined together in '69.  Movado was eventually sold to a cuban expat. in the U.S. (apparently this man's son or grandson is the current CEO of Movado).
Available online sources say this split happened in '83.  So, likely there's a little overlap there concerning Zodiac/Zenith/Movado just in ownership under the Dixie Machine company era.  I think the sale of Zodiac to Dixie was around '82 but who knows what type of collaboration may have been going on before then with Zenith.
If one does a search on "Saddam Hussein Zodiac watch", the model above appears several times.  Zodiac signed dial and Zenith crowns seem to be the norm.
Also, appears to me that the quartz "New Kingline" from the '80s Zodiac catalog may have been another co-branded version of the Port Royal.  In this particular case it looks to be Zodiac's design co-opted by Zenith.

Side note; Saddam must have employed a full time watch purchaser.  The number of Iraqi watches out there from several different brands is mind-boggling.
