ROCK FOUND A WATCH PRODUCED IN THE LATE 1960s ON EBAY. ITS CASE BACK AND INTERIOR, DIAL, MOVEMENT AND CROWN WERE SIGNED ZODIAC. IT HAD A BLACK DIAL WITH OUTLINED RAISED TRITIUM [DEAD] ILLUMINATED NUMBERS AND TRITIUM [DEAD] FILLED WHITE HANDS.

THE ALL STEEL CASE RESEMBLED THE CLASSIC ZODIAC OLYMPUS STYLE CASE WITH CROWN AT 2 AND POWERED BY A HACKING ZODIAC SEA WOLF STYLE MOVEMENT

1- A WITH SCREW IN SET BRIDGE HOLDING STEM INSTEAD OF PUSH PIN

2- HIGH END PRECISE BALANCE REGULATOR INSTEAD OF SIMPLE

3- CASE MACHINING THAT FIT ZODIAC HACKING AUTOMATIC THROUGH TOP. A MACHINING LACKING IN THE OLYMPUS

THE JET BLACK DIAL WAS UNUSUAL, FOR IT HAD ZODIAC, BROADARROW AND AUTOMATIC ALL ON DIAL. THIS HAD NEVER BEFORE BEEN SEEN BY ROCK OR MANY OTHERS EVEN THOSE WHOM PROFESSED ALL THE KNOWLEDGE THAT EXISTS.

THE REAL PROBLEM WAS THAT ROCK HAD YET TO SEE A BRITISH MILITARY WATCH WITH AN AUTOMATIC. LET ALONE ONE WITH A SET UP LIKE THIS. BUT ROCK BOUGHT IT FOR 200.00 BECAUSE HE WANTED TO SEE IT. IT CAME FROM AN ESTATE SALE OF BRITISH MILITARY ITEMS IN MIAMI FLORIDA. ROCK PURCHASED THE WATCH AND TIMERS AND OTHER ITEMS. .

IMG_3769.JPG (167880 bytes)
“LATE 1960s” “ZODIAC” “ROYAL ARMY”
NOTE MORE PICS OF OTHER WATCHES FROM SAME BOOK ON DOWN

WHILE ROCK WAS RESTORING THE WATCH, HE WENT ON EBAY AND CAME ACROSS A PAIR OF REAL NICE JAPANESE FULL COLOR PROFESSIONAL VINTAGE MILITARY WATCH BOOKS. HE PURCHASED BOTH OF THEM

WHEN THEY, THE LORDS OF THE WATCH RINGS LEARNED OF THE FIND THEY HAD DISMISSED IT.

WHEN THEY, THE LORDS OF THE WATCH RINGS LEARNED OF THE BOOKS …. THEY DISMISSED THEM “BECAUSE THEY WERE ASIAN”.

FURTHER RESPONSES WERE MET WITH, LITERALLY, ” THAT ANYONE RESEMBLING THE CHINESE, JAPANESE, FILIPINO, VIETNAMESE, MALAYSIAN OR LIVE IN THAT “PART OF THE WORLD” ARE PREHISTORIC AND HAVE NO PLACE IN THE WATCH INDUSTRY, LET ALONE VINTAGE WATCH INDUSTRY. .

I WILL SAY AGAIN WHAT I SAID THEN:

I GUESS YOUR EXPERTS DID NOT KNOW

1- THE HI BEAT WATCH RACE BETWEEN SWISS AND JAPANESE OF 1950’S WAS WON IN JAPAN.

2- THE AUTOMATIC WITH COLUMN WHEEL CHRONOGRAPH RACE WAS WON BY JAPAN

3 THE FIRST QUARTZ WATCH WAS BUILT AND SOLD BY THE JAPANESE 1969

4- THE SPRING DRIVE, A NEW INNOVATIVE SYSTEM, WAS UNLEASHED ONCE AGAIN, BY THE JAPANESE…

OH, AND LEST I FORGET … THE JAPANESE USED AMERICAN AND SWISS MOVEMENTS FROM 1908 THROUGH 1940. WHILE COPYING THEM SO EXACT THAT AMERICAN AND SWISS PARTS WILL WORK IN THE JAPANESE MANUFACTURED TIME PIECES…

**********************************************************

BELOW IS THE SECOND BRITISH PROTOTYPE. ROCK SOLD THE FIRST RESTORED MODEL FOR 3000.00 WITH 2500 CASH AND THE NON RUNNING OR RESTORED MODEL THE PATRON HAD FOR A NET VALUE OF 3K. THUS THE FIRST ONE SOLD TO A HIGHLY EXPERIENCED COLLECTOR WITH 100 MILITARY WATCHES FOR *$1300 USD + TRADE 6 MONTHS AGO–500.00 OF THAT WAS THE VALUE OF THE NON RUNNING MODEL HE HAD

THE INVESTOR WROTE ROCK THIS STATEMENT

MILITARY PROTOTYPES ARE WATCHES MADE TO SUBMIT TO A MILITARY BEFORE ACCEPTANCE. MANY TIMES A MAKER WILL MANUFACTURE A FEW DOZEN WATCHES JUST TO SEE IF A MILITARY GROUP WILL INVEST IN THEM. THUS THE PROTOTYPE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A WATCH MADE IN CONTRACT BEFORE THE PRODUCTION MODEL IS MADE...

….ROCK STRIPPED DOWN THE FIRST FIND, OVERHAULED IT, RESTORED IT AND THE DIAL WHILE GOING THROUGH A HELL OF A TIME WITH INDIVIDUALS WHOM BELIEVE THE INQUISITION SHOULD EXIST ‘CAUSE THE WORLD OF VINTAGE WATCHES IS FLAT….

THE THREE DIAL PICTURED ABOVE ARE THE ACTUAL SHOTS START TO FINISH OF MAINTAINING THE ORIGINAL DIAL ON THE SECOND FIND.

A- THE NUMBERS & HANDS NO LONGER GLOWED
B- THE LOWER PORTION OF BROADARROW WAS DAMAGED
C- AROUND THE CENTER HOLE THERE WAS LOSS OF PAINT
D- THE PAINT WAS “WASHED OUT”

A: ROCK RE-ILLUMINATED THE NUMBERS AND HANDS-
B: ROCK TOUCHED UP THE BROAD ARROW
C- ROCK TOUCHED UP AND THE WEAR AROUND CENTER
D– ROCK SILICONE WASHED AND BUFFED THE DIAL WITH MINI-Q-TIPS

UNTIL IT LOOKED AS THE TOP FAR RIGHT AND BELOW PICTURES….IT IS AWESOME AND ORIGINAL

THE ONLY ITEM NOT ORIGINAL IS THE CRYSTAL
THIS ZODIAC HAD A HEAVY DUTY ACRYLIC CRYSTAL

THIS TYPE OF CRYSTAL IS SUPER STRONG AND CAN BE BUFFED
AT LEAST 10 TIMES

BACK TO THE BOOKS. WHEN THEY ARRIVED ROCK WAS FLOORED, SEVERAL PAGES INTO ONE WAS THE VERY WATCH HE WAS RESTORING. WITHIN A FEW DAYS A HALF DOZEN IDIOTS PROFESSING EXPERTISE OF THE BRITISH MILITARY WATCH MARKET, QUOTING HIGH END MILITARY WATCH BOOKS, STATED “THE WATCH WAS NEVER LISTED OR EXISTED”. THEY PROCEEDED TO CALL THE JAPANESE BOOK “AN ASIAN BOOK, LOTS OF STUFF COME FROM ASIA, LIKE KNOCK OFFS…”

WHEN I PROTESTED THAT THE JAPANESE WRITER PHOTOGRAPHERS AND PUBLISHERS HAD PUT THEIR HEARTS AND ARTS INTO THE BOOKS AND THAT EVERY OTHER ONE OF THE 300 WATCHES WERE PERFECTLY TOLD SHOWN AND ID AND THAT THEY EXISTED.

THEN THEN SAID “NOT ONLY WAS IT NOT A BRITISH WATCH, BUT THAT WATCHES NOT PRODUCED FOR MILITARY ISSUE, LIKE THE US A-11, ARE NOT IN ANY WAY MILITARY WATCHES” AND “THAT ONE OF ROCKS OFFERS OF THAT DAY A “MILITARY TRENCH WATCH” WAS NOT A MILITARY TRENCH BECAUSE IT HAD NOT BEEN ISSUED BY ANY MILITARY ORGANIZATION”.

ROCK SHOWED THEM THESE:

GSW ALSO PRODUCED AN ADVERT BY GRUEN PROVING THAT AMONG OTHERS, GRUEN PLACED ADS FOCUSING ON THE MILITARY PERSONAL BY BUILDING 8 WATCHES EACH TAILORED TO A SPECIFIC BRANCH OR PROFESSION…O

LEATHER-MILITARY-WATCH-TRENCH-STRAP.jpg (300530 bytes)
ACTUAL PHOTO OF STORE SELLING TRENCH WATCHES WWI
“SALE ARMY WRIST WATCHES”
WE HAVE THE FULL PAGE PICTURE

THEN WE PRODUCED A FULL PAGE PICTURE FROM WWI. IT IS OF A STORE WITH THOUSANDS OF “ARMY WRIST WATCHES” FOR SALE FOR 4 BUCKS EACH AND KITCHNER LEATHER TRENCH STRAPS FOR 10 CENTS EACH. THIS AND A MULTITUDE OF AVAILABLE MATERIAL DEMONSTRATE THAT ONLY 10% OF ALL WATCHES IN THE FIELD WERE SUPPLIED BY MILITARY ORGANIZATIONS.

AA-TRENCH-KIT.jpg (117867 bytes)

IN FACT, IN WWI THE OFFICERS ILLUMINATED WRIST WATCH WAS LISTED NUMBER ONE IN A BOOK THAT WOULD BE PUBLISHED BY A BRITISH CAPTAIN WITH FIELD EXPERIENCE. THIS BOOK WOULD BE AND GIVEN TO ALL OFFICERS BY THE BRITISH CROWN MILITARY DUH…….

***********************************************
A MESSAGE TO A 1916 ANNUAL MEETING OF
CLOCK WATCH AND JEWELRY WHOLESALERS
SHOWING THAT 1 IN 4 MEN HAD WRIST WATCHES
THE GOV SUPPLIES 20% OF OFFICERS
5 PERCENT NON COMS

“The public is buying the practical things of life. Nobody can truthfully contend that the watch is a luxury. In these days the watch is as necessary as a hat – more so, in fact. One can catch trains and keep appointments without a hat, but not without a watch.

It is said that one soldier in every four wears a wristlet watch, and the other three mean to get one as soon as they can. Wristlet watches are not luxuries; wedding-rings are not luxuries. These are the two items jewelers have been selling in the greatest quantities for many months past.”

WERE THEY TALKING MILITARY ISSUE??? HELL NO. THEY SAY, “THE OTHER THREE MEAN TO GET”…. ” …..NOT “MILITARY MEANS TO GIVE”

***************************************

” SO IS YOUR OFFER FOR A MILITARY WATCH ”

WE HAVE A LIBRARY OF BOOKS. OVER 100. THESE BOOKS COVER ALL AREAS OF MILITARY THOUGHT, ACTION AND EQUIPMENT. FROM THOSE ABOUT THE MILITARY UNIT, BRANCH AND TYPE, TO THE INDIVIDUAL BOOKS OF BATTLES AND ACTIONS, TO THOSE OF SUBS, DESTR0YERS, AIRCRAFT AND EVEN THE TANK, TO THOSE OF IUNIFORMS AND TIMING DEVISES AND WATCHES. FROM PRISINOR OF WAR TO THE REPORTERS WITHIN COMBAT UNITS, TO MOVIES ON TV AND THE BIG SCREEN, WE ARE ABLE TO READ AND VISUALLY SEE ITEMS AND THINGS AND FEATURES THAT ASSIST US.

BUT EVEN WITH ALL OF THAT, MANY TIMESD IT IS NOT UNTIL WE INVEST THAT WE HAVE THE ANSWER. UNTIL THE JAPANESE REFERENCE BOOK , WHICH HAS BEEN 100% PERFECT, WE HAD NEVER VIEWED A ZODIAC WITH BROAD ARROW AND RAISED LUME DIAL WITH HACKING ABILITY AND AN AUTOMMATIC MOVEMENT.

THE ZODIAC MOVEMENT , CASE, AND CASE BACK INSURED THAT WE HAD A GENUINE FACTORY MADE ZODIAC AUTOMATIC.

WITH A GENUINE ZODIAC WATCH LOOKING LIKE THAT OF THE BOOK PICTURE BUT WITHOUT CASE MARKINGS BUT WITH THE VERY MARKINGS ON THE DIAL THAT SHOUTED MILITARY, ONLY OUR RESEARCH INTO THE PROTOTYPE WAS TLEFT..

DID THIS ALL MEANT NOTHING DUE TO THE FACT WE DID NOT HAVE PURCHASE ORDER OR A CONTRACT DID REQUEST?

ONE THAT THE BRITISH MILITARY WOULD SEND OUT REQUSTING BIODS AND PROTOTYPES, LIKE THE BENRUS VIETNAM MILITARY WATCH THAT WAS CREATED TO MEET US MILITARY REQUESTS FOR BIDS AND PROTOTYPES ?

THE BENRUS PROTOTYPE MET THE SPECIFICATIONS OF THE US MILITARY AND WAS EXCEPTED AND BULOVA WAS TURNED DOWN DUE TO THEIR LACK OF A PROTOTYPE!

BUT HOW COULD I FIND THIS?.

BUT THEN WE DISCOVERED THAT MANY MANUFACTURERS BUILD PROTOTYPES TO SHOW A GOVERNMEMNT OR INDUSTRY THIER IDEAS WHEN NO REQUEST WAS EVER SENT. AMND THAT IT OCCURED LIKE WATER FLOWS DOWN A HILL!

MY COLLECTOR WHO INVESTED IN THE LAST RESTORE PPOINTED THIS OUT AND HAD 35 PROTOTYPES ALREADY THAT WERE MADE AND SUBMITTED WITH NO REQUEST OR CONTRACT.

THUS THE INITIAL PROTOTYPES OR DEMONSTRATION WATCHES DID NOT REQUIRE GREAT OUTPUT ON THE SIDE OF ZODIAC. BY THE LATE 1960’s THEY HAD VIETNAM UNDER THEIR BELTS. THUS THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THE ONE IN THE BOOK WITH BRITISH STAMPING ON THE BACK IS GENUINE AND THE TWO WE INVESTED WERE RIGHT OFF THE PRESS,,,,

FROM ZODIAC SEA WOLF TO BRITISH MILITARY AUTOMATIC PROTOTYPE

IN THE LATE 1950’S, A GROUND BREAKING 17 TO 25 JEWEL ***NON HACKING, AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT WAS DEVELOPED BY ZODIAC WITH THE COLLABORATION OF DOXA, EBERHARD, FAVRE-LEUBA, AND GIRARD PERREGAUX

ZODIAC-NO-DATE.jpg (570140 bytes)


WITH THE ZODIAC’S PERSONALLY FINISHED AUTOMATIC, ZODIAC LAUNCHED THE AMAZING 660 FT SEAWOLF NON DATE WITH 17JEWELS AT THE ***1964 WORLDS FAIR @ THE SWISS PAVILION.

***ROCK WAS 11 WHEN HE “RAN-AWAY” TO ANOTHER STATE. BEFORE TAKING THE JOURNEY HE WENT TO THE WORLDS FAIR IN FLUSHING QUEENS [READ HOUSE OF CARDS] WHERE HE WOULD VISIT A FEW DOZEN FREE EXHIBITS INCLUDING THE OUTDOOR AMPHIBIAN CAR EXHIBIT, THE GENERAL ELECTRIC EXHIBIT WITH REVOLVING PLATFORMS SHOWING THE ADVANCEMENT OF GE APPLIANCES, THE IBM EXHIBIT ON COMPUTERS AND THE SWISS PAVILION AND THE WATCHES INCLUDING ZODIAC.

IMG_1965.JPG (127826 bytes)
RESTORED BY ROCK

BY 1966, ZODIAC ADVERTISED TO SOLDIERS AND CIVILIAN ALIKE AND BY 1968, A YEAR BEFORE THE TET OFFENSIVE, INTRODUCED THE HACKING SEAWOLF MODEL AT THE US MILITARY PX AND R&R LOCATIONS AROUND THE GLOBE, AND SPECIFICALLY IN HONG KONG AND AUSTRALIA., TWO HIGH ZONES THAT WENT TO THOSE WITH LONGER IN COUNTRY TIME.

LITERALLY, THOUSANDS OF ZODIAC SEA WOLFS WERE PURCHASED BY US MILITARY PERSONAL. SO MANY IN FACT THAT THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF WOULD BE ONE OF ONLY SEVERAL BRANDS AT THE TOP OF THE “AMAZING” LIST.

***NOTE: HACKING MEANS WHEN YOU PULL THE CROWN OUT THE SECONDS HAND STOPS. LIKE A MODERN DAY QUARTZ. THIS FEATURE BACK IN THE DAY WAS IMPORTANT. USED ON WATCHES LIKE THE WWII A-11 US PILOTS WATCH AND SEIKO 6105 DIVERS -WORN IN APOCALYPSE NOW THE MOVIE., YOU COULD SET YOUR TIME [“ZULU”] WITHIN A GROUP SO ALL WATCHES WERE ON THE EXACT PRECISE TIME.

IN VIETNAM,LIKE ALL MODERN WARS, MISSIONS WERE COORDINATED WITH A HACKING WATCH. THE ZODIAC WAS A BELOVED WATCH TO MANY GI’s.

THESE WERE SOLD BY THE THOUSANDS FOR 100.00 TO 125.00 US TO GI’s BATTLING THE VIETNAM WAR. IT WAS THOSE SALES THROUGH JEWELRY STORES, AND THE US MILITARY PX/BX SYSTEM AND R&R LOCATIONS, THAT WOULD BUILD THE REPUTATION OF ZODIAC AND THEIR SEA WOLF.

HOW TO DATE YOUR ZODIAC AUTOMATIC

IT IS ALSO THE ONLY ONE WITHOUT A *DATE AVAILABLE .I AM SURE ZODIAC MADE EXCEPTIONS BY UTILIZING THE CAL: 70-71 IN MODELS AFTER 1970, BUT FOR ALL PURPOSES THE SEA WOLF HAD CHANGED –THOUGH THEY REMAINED A WONDERFUL WATCH, THE MID DATE NON DATERS JUST HAPPEN TO BE THE BEST COLLECTIBLES. * DATE MODELS HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE OFF-SET CANON PINION, A PART NO LONGER MADE, THERE ARE ALLEGED CANON PINIONS MADE FOR OTHER WATCHES THAT FIT, WE HAVE NOT HAD SUCCESS, BUT THE FOLLOWING WORKS PERFECTLY CLICK HERE FOR ROCKS ZODIAC CANON PINION FIX

WE ARE CERTAIN OF THE TIME LINE OF THE NON-DATE AND FIRST DATER, AND OF THE NEXT TWO DATERS WITHIN A YEAR EITHER WAY , WE DO NOT EVER SAY WHAT WE WRITE CANNOT BE IMPROVED AND FURTHER, THE VINTAGE WATCH, ONCE RESEARCHED, OPENS THE DOOR TO FURTHER RESEARCH I HAVE NOT WITNESSED ANY OF THIS INFORMATION ANYWHERE BUT ON MY COMPUTER BECAUSE I WROTE IT AFTER RESEARCH.

HERE IS A SHOT OF THE FIRST ZODIAC BRITISH WATCH DISCOVERED ON EBAY. NOTE THE ADJUSTER ON THE BALANCE IS ADVANCED. MOVE THE FINGER AND GEAR MESHING CAUSES THE ADJUST MENT. ALSO NOTE THE BLACK ON THE FACE OF THE LOCKING EDGES OF CASE. IN LARGER PICTURE THIS LOOKS LIKE WET RUBBER, IT WAS THE ORIGINAL RUBBER SEAL THAT HAD LITERALLY MELTED BETWEEN CASE AND CASE BACK. THIS WAS THE EXTRA PROOF THAT THE WATCH WAS GENUINE AND MANUFACTURED LET 1960′.. RUBBER BREAKS DOWN EXACTLY LIKE THIS IN EXACTLY SAME TIME FRAME.

ROCK HAS ABOUT 50 SPARE ZODIAC MOVEMENTS
AND MANY SPARE PARTS FOR ALL ZODIAC WATCHES

THE BRITISH ZODIAC MOVEMENT MOUNTS FROM TOP, THE CRYSTAL/DIAL SIDE, THE MOVEMENT FITS PERFECTLY INTO AND DOWN INTO CASE. THE RIM OF THE TOP PLATE KEEPS MOVEMENT FROM HITTING THE CASE BACK . A MACHINED RING KEEPS MOVEMENT FROM HITTING CRYSTAL.

OVER
THE ZODIAC MOVEMENT ON THIS BRITISH PROTOTYPE FITS THROUGH THE TOP OF CASE PERFECTLY LOCKING WITH OUT THE DIAL ATTACHED. THEN, ON THE INNER CASE, TWO SCREW DOWN LOCKS FIT INTO EDGE OF MOVEMENT AND LOCK OVER A SINGLE STEEL RING THAT IS CARVED/MACHINED INTO THE CASE LOCKING THE MOVEMENT.

UNDER
ON THE SEA WOLF THE MOVEMENT FITS THROUGH BOTTOM AND TWO SCREW LOCKS FIT IN THE MIDDLE OF A DOUBLE RING CARVED/MACHINED INTO CASE AND THE MOVEMENT IS LOCKED

THE BRITISH ZODIAC

THE CRAZY THING IS, WHEN WHAT LOOKS LIKE A RARITY POPS UP, YOU HAVE TO JUMP. SOMETIMES YOU GET SKINNED… LIKE A WWI WATCH THAT LOOKED AWESOME, YET ARRIVED ONLY TO REVEAL ITS NO JEWEL PIN LEVER NON RUNNING MOVEMENT.

THIS ZODIAC WAS A WINNER ONLY BECAUSE THE FIRST ONE WAS PROVEN CORRECT AND SOLD TO A COLLECTOR WITH 1OO MILITARY WATCHES. HE INVESTED BECAUSE OF RARITY OF PROTOTYPES IN GENERAL. HE KNEW ZODIACS AND HE LOVED IT. HE SAID TO ROCK:

” MILITARY PROTOTYPES ARE WATCHES MADE TO SUBMIT TO A MILITARY BEFORE ACCEPTANCE. MANY TIMES A MAKER WILL MANUFACTURE A FEW DOZEN WATCHES JUST TO SEE IF A MILITARY GROUP WILL INVEST IN THEM. THUS THE PROTOTYPE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A WATCH MADE IN CONTRACT BEFORE THE PRODUCTION MODEL IS MADE…”

***************************************

COMPLETED # 2.

THE ZODIAC THAT WANTED A HOME?

WHEN READING TIMEFRAUD.COM OR RESEARCHING WATCH BOOKS AND HISTORIC DOCUMENTATION, YOU WILL DISCOVER THAT MILITARY ORDERED WATCHES MADE TO MILITARY SPECIFICATION NEVER INCLUDED AN AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT. WHEN WE INVESTED IN THE FIRST WWII STYLE 1960’S ILLUMINATED ZODIAC WATCH WITH AN AUTOMATIC HACKING MOVEMENT AND BROAD ARROW ON IT’S DIAL, IT FLOORED US. RESEARCH CAME UP ZERO. NO PRO, NO CON, NO EVIDENCE WAS AVAILABLE AND OTHERS IN THE VINTAGE ZODIAC FIELD BRUSHED IT ASIDE.

AFTER SITTING IN ROCK’S TO DO DRAWER FOR MONTHS, ROCK PURCHASED TWO JAPANESE BOOKS ON EBAY WITH HUNDREDS OF MILITARY WATCHES FROM WWII THROUGH TO THE 1980’S. WHEN THEY ARRIVED, IT BECAME APPARENT THAT THE FULL COLOR ON HARD STOCK PHOTOS AND INFORMATION WAS CORRECT. AND, WITHIN THESE BOOKS WAS A PICTURE OF A “BRITISH AUTOMATIC ZODIAC” WITH CROWN AT #2. NEARLY EVERY THING WAS SIMILAR TO THE ZODIAC MILITARY WATCH ROCK INVESTED IN. ONLY THE WWW CASE MARKINGS AND SERIALS WERE MISSING.

WHEN HE RESTORED THE FIRST OF THESE RARE BRITISH MILITARY TIMEPIECES, IT INVOKED EVERY SORT OF COMMENT — ESPECIALLY FROM SOME DIE HARD ZODIAC AFICIONADOS WHO WERE AGHAST BECAUSE THEY NEVER EVER KNEW OF THIS MODEL AND NOT ONLY DISMISSED IT, BUT SAID THE BOOK WAS ASIAN AND NOT WORTH A DIME [LET ME SAY OUTSIDE OF THE JAPANESE KANJI WHICH WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND, THEY ARE A GREAT SET OF BOOKS WITH AWESOME FULL COLOR 1ST CLASS PICTURES AND THE MAIN INFO IN ENGLISH.

THUS, WE WERE SUCCESSFUL. NOT ONLY DID DEMONSTRATE THE FACTS THAT THESE ARE LEGITIMATE ZODIACS MADE IN THE ZODIAC FACTORY, BUT WE INCLUDED THE INFORMATION AND PICTURES OF THE FACTORY ZODIAC CASE, THE ZODIAC CASE BACK, THE ZODIAC MOVEMENT, THE ZODIAC DIAL, AND, THE PICTURES OF THIS MODEL IN ONE OF THE JAPANESE MILITARY WATCH BOOKS…………
