I have a pair like new. Not easy to find. $145 delivered. Check OK but needs 10 days to clear. I have bought and sold here over the last 12 years. I am not a dealer / broker. Just a collector. Hence I do not have a C C system setup. Have bought from Butch the site moderator, in the past as well.

VERY nice! NOS from the 70's. Search the Forum for ASTROGRAPHIC and you will find a plethora of info on them. They are a pupular model amongst the collectors. Let us know if you have any specific questions. Also, they are quite prominent in the 70's catalogs.

Hi, I am seeking information on the SST Astrographic Mystery Hands 36000. I have two, new, never worn, in original boxed packaging and sealed paperwork. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I'm brand new to the captivating world of watches and could use some guidance.
The case diameter of this piece measures 31 mm. Would you consider it a men's dress watch?
Judging by the three-digit number on the inner side of the case, the production date should fall between 1950-1960, correct?
Could you shed light on the materials used here? Is it plated brass? Case itself is non-magnetic. Did Zodiac produce "antimagnetique" gold-plated models?
Taking a glance at the side view, the crystal boasts a distinctive shape. Could it possibly be the original one? It's in good condition, and I'm aware that finding authentic spare parts like this can be quite challenging.
The seconds around the dial bring to mind the "Jet 24hr" models. Does anyone know the specific model name or why there are seconds around the dial without the main idea of hour numbers starting with 24? It seems a bit unusual to me.
What are your thoughts on the crown in terms of authenticity and originality?
Although it's of lesser importance, I'll ask anyway since new Zodiac bands aren't currently in production. Is this band from Zodiac? Similar to the crown, there are no visible markings or branding.
How would you assess the overall authenticity and condition of this watch? Any insights on its rarity and the estimated number of pieces produced? What was the original price, both then and now?
