Super rare men's mid-century luxury watch from Zodiac SA. This is a "full calendar" or "triple calendar" moonphase, super complicated watch. Uncommon and highly desirable; Zodac's take on this type of luxury piece is generally regarded as being in the top 3 with Rolex and Omega's designs . With stick markers, sweep seconds, slim bezel (so it wears large on the wrist) and steel back. Heavy, thick 14k yellow gold fill. Excellent, near mint condition overall, with some quite minor signs of wear. Please see pics! 100% original black gloss dial tells the time, day, date, month and moon phase! 
Runs great on its Swiss Zodiac cal. 74 automatic movement with 17 ruby jewels. This is an in-house, exclusive Zodiac movement (most moonphase in this era used manual-wind ebauche movements from mass market suppliers like Venus and Valjoux). All functions working here. Fully serviced 2017; as with anything vintage I cannot guarantee timekeeping and it should be serviced every few years to keep running to spec. Most of the displays are quickset via buttons on the case; but please be careful not to change settings via buttons from about 10pm to 2am as doing so may damage the movement! All movements of this type should be set in a particular manner, and I will include simple setting instructions with the watch.
This is , men's version at 34mm without crown, 43mm lug to lug*. Good wrist presence for its average size due to very thin bezel design which makes the dial stand out. *Note: these measurements are approximate and your measurement may show slight variance!!! Sadly I have to add such disclaimer after just dealing with a NAD case over a 0.4mm (yes, really, less than half of one millimetre!) alleged difference in diameter of a watch I sold here. I apologize wasting the reading time of normal/honest buyers. Yet I must put this in to protect myself from such silly frivolous disputes nonetheless.No shipping to Russia, Vietnam or certain other areas where signed, secure delivery is not possible.
