Today's arrival is a Zodiac chronograph from the 70's. It measures 39mm x 42mm x 14mm. It is powered by a Valjoux based Cal. 7734 manual wind movement.

Boy oh boy this Zodiac is really EXTRAORDINARY Rick ! Very Happy The vintage valjoux
chronographs are always so nice, and Zodiac evidently knocked it out of the
park back in the 70's with this one. Wow ! Shocked It genuinely has a very different
look because of the red in between the markers on the upper half of the dial,
and the lower half. Plus the grey line in the center, mixed with the black is
off the charts also. Yowza Rick ! Cogratulations on this find sir. Seems like
this watch mixes the best of everything together to be honest. It has a
very sporty side, but still has MORE than enough class too. Continuing with
the sportiness in the watch for just a second. That red on both halves of
the dial is excellent. It really helps to set the watch apart. Even that grey
line, teamed with the grey chapter ring is great. Hey, and how about the
hands with this one ! Smile The second hand keeps that aggressive sporty
theme going. While the hour, and minute hands almost give you a futuristic
feel with their parallel edges. The white stands out very nicely with them
as well. Actually everything stands out very nicely ! Even the case with
both it's shape, and also the way the brushing is done on it is extraordianary.
It brings in some extra class, and also shows some of the craftsmanship
that went into the watch. Beautiful looking strap with the watch as well
by the way. It also is classy, and still nice, and sporty. What a combination,
what A WATCH ! Congrats once again, and I hope that you enjoy !

Extraordinary watch, as well as pictures Rick !
