Love this one since it homages the Rolex 1960s GMT! Smile Came in two sizes with ETA movement. The company was bought out by FOSSIL in the 1990s, so this original Zodiac is rather rare. Not expensive as a collectible, it nevertheless is a nice addition to my eclectic herd! Smile

Awesome watch, AND information Thian ! Very Happy Zodiac GMT from the mid 90s homage... 46145 Love the way the vintage Zodiacs
look, along with all of the different movements that were evidently used in them.
There is something special about watches like these. They have a lot of charm, as
well as a history within them. Plus the design with the pepsi look, along with all of
the triangle markers is tremendous also. That, and I also just like Zodiac too ! Smile
Congratulations on such a neat watch sir. ..Not sure if the Rolex version has all
of the triangle markings playing off of eachother or not, but definitely like how it
looks here with the Zodiac Thian. I know many times we might see dot markers
in between the triangle markers. However, Zodiac seems to have really been thinking
outside of the box with this one. The way in which they give you that classic GMT
pepsi look with their own unique take on things is pretty FANTASTIC in my opinion.
The main, larger triangles at the 12, 6, and 9 o'clock positions are very nice, and
the one at the 12 o'clock position seems to be extra big. It's really an eye-catching
part of the watch, and just the way that Zodiac decided to add in the smaller ones
in between the main ones is great. Genuinely is the kind of thing that helps make
a watch different, or be one of a kind. You can even enjoy the fact that Zodiac
decided to add the triangle markers on to the bezel. ..Speaking of that bezel Thian,
the markings, numbers, as well as the blue, and red are TOO GOOD ! Smile The
way everything works together is phenomenal, and the longer you stare at it, the
more you can appreciate everything that is going on. It looks extremely sporty,
extremely classy, and just extremely cool ALL the way around. On the one hand
there is this elegant side to it with the look of the case, and bracelet, but then you
have this TREMENDOUSLY unique feel with the way the details come together.
Think that is one of the nice things about Zodiac in general. They have some of
their own unique designs, but ALSO will have their own unique twists on styles like
this one here. ..Another example of this could be how you have these classic looking
hands on the dial, but then as you step back there is an almost special effect that
is happening with the triangles, and deep black dial. All at once you can enjoy the
traditional elements of a nice classic dive watch, and at the same time appreciate
the new, and uniquely cool feel this Zodiac has to offer. By the way, that strap is
a neat addition to the watch as well. It has that vintage charm theme down perfectly,
and even seems to play off of that great dial. ..Tremendous Zodiac, along with info
sir. Zodiac GMT from the mid 90s homage... 803574 ..I hope you enjoy !

Tremendous watch, info, and photo !
