It's not every day you see on of these gems, the Zodiac Hermetic. Zodiac are a company that have been around for a long time and arguable are most famous for their SeaWolf range which covered many models both vintage and modern. However because most of the focus goes on those references we are left with many different Zodiac watches that go by relatively unnoticed, allowing us to still find them for very fair prices! For example this reference has a very interesting case design, clean attractive dial with an ETA manually wound movement. When you consider that and see the asking price, it's very fair and I suspect people will eventually realise there is a lot more to offer from the brand than just the SeaWolf!
Points of Mention
This watch does feature a gold plated case, being vintage it is showing signs of wear. The dial is in good condition with even aging and no signs of damage, the crystal is the original to the watch and therefore is showing some signs of age but overall is very good. The watch has unknown service history, however it is winding, setting and running okay. Comes paired on a genuine Crocodile strap of high quality.
I really like Zodiac and I think they are doing some interesting things with their new watches, however I am primarily a vintage guy! So for me these vintage watches are amazing, as mentioned above I think there is a LOT of room for people's appreciation to grow for these and therefore I think the prices going up will reflect that! I'd say get them whilst they're cheap!
