May I ask - a relative newbie as I am - what are you referring to? Is there supposed to be a picture attached?

Thanks for the clarification.

As a lesser educated Zodiac fan than you gentlemen, I still dont get what's being referred to. Whats wrong with the 12 o clock marker? I'm assuming you are pointing to the dial somehow not being original - but how do you tell?

i was alluding to the statement made by the seller..."The orange arrow at 12 a clock probably means it's been in service in the past by Zodiac"

statements like that somethings get spun into fact and soon everyone will be painting the marker orange and claiming is was factory serviced.

Ah, I missed that part. Thank you for the explanation. Thats hilarious if it weren't so stupid.

I'm more and more frequently getting into discussions with Heuer fans consistently claiming that Heuer made Zodiacs......some even claiming that Heuer OWNED Zodiac. Even if the first is not entirely impossible (yes I'm aware of the thread on the subject on the forum), the second claim is ridiculous.

I rarely comment publicly on those thoughts Grossisten. And I never waste my time talking to an obtuse oaf.

But you do as you will of course.
