Orbiter
« on: August 06, 2010, 04:48:53 am »
I got this today. It was described as 'Zodiac - wristwatches' with out of focus and glare-filled pictures. Anyway, I took a gamble and here it is:




and thought you'd like to see it. As I understand it, the Orbiter was the early name for the Astrographic - but correct me if I'm wrong. Its my first mystery dialled watch.





The movement is a 72D.



This how it came:



There is a little dust visible on the discs, but not enough to worry about.

I only found one Orbiter in the gallery, so feel free to lift the pictures if you want.

Thanks for looking.

That is one of the best examples of an Orbiter that I have ever seen. You did great all around on this purchase.
