I typically prefer Vintage watches over their modern counterparts for any number of reasons. However, here is a case where this Limited Edition version of an old classic by Zodiac, is the more desirable choice. I owned a vintage Astrographic and this almost new watch with it's stunning Blue Dial is a much more attractive timepiece. My understanding is Zodiac only made 182 of these in each color way and they are already very hard to find at AD's or online sellers.
I did have a link removed from the Bracelet to fit my 7 1/2 (19.05 cm) wrist and the link will be included as well. Here is what Zodiac says about the watch on their website. Lauded as the Watch of the Future, the original Astrographic was designed in 1969 during the height of the space racea period of technological innovation culminating into the historic Apollo 11 lunar landing. Ignited by this advancement in space exploration, Zodiac sought to bring a similar pioneering attitude to timekeeping. Deriving its name from the terms astronomy and astrology, the Astrographic was a watch very much ahead of its time with its avant-garde shaped case and use of floating disks to tell time in lieu of traditional watch hands.Now in honor of the Astrographics 50th Anniversary, weve crafted a one-of-a-kind limited edition inspired by the next giant leap for humankind: the exploration of Mars. This new model still features suspended hour and minute markers that simulate two revolving satellites in space, while the second hand is designed as a red dot to resemble the iconic Red Planet.
In striking stainless steel, this re-issue of the Astrographic marks Zodiac's commitment to blending historically renowned design with Swiss-made horological advancements. Case size: 40 mm x 43 mm. Look closely at the attached images and see how the blue dial changes in different light conditions! Also, if you look closely at the last two images you can see how the Red Dot, representing Mars, mysteriously moves around the dial in lieu of a typical second hand.
