I saw this in an ebay Zodiac ad
« on: February 02, 2021, 09:34:51 am »
This was included in the photos of a ebay Zodiac stainless bracelet  listing (24043719965) within the last week or so. Any one know about the history of this ad or display sign?
Would make a good T shirt, but what about copyright infringement?

Some people want to know how a watch works, others just want to know what time it is.

Well, certainly that team owns the logo. It may be from a Fossil ad and I won't bother researching that.

Here is one from the 2002 Genender Zodiac Catalog. His company went and got them involved with the SSW back then.

So the UDT /SEALS put the Zodiac on their logo. Notice they didn't use the company's exact script or stylized lettering. Copyright infringement is not something I want to step in.

And if you are not paying them, well... Notice what brand is NOT here?
