1970s Zodiac Two-Tone Aerospace GMT (Ref. 752-934)
When it comes to under-the-radar vintage watch companies, Zodiac should be one of the first brands to come to mind. Zodiac made several sports models in the 50s-60s and were direct competitors to Rolex, Blancpain, and Tudor but are often looked over as they don't receive the same clout as the aforementioned companies. However, this is to the advantage of the collectors that enjoy the subtle, or not-so-subtle nuances that the Zodiac timepieces carry. Zodiac timepieces often feature bright color combinations that can make any vintage watch collector swoon.
After the widespread success the Sea-Wolf saw throughout the 1950s, Zodiac was ready to expand their platform. Developing on the already proven Sea-Wolf case, Zodiac dove into the realm of aviation and travel watches with the Aerospace GMT in 1962. The classic GMT design is comprised of an bi directional 24hr bezel, and additional red 24hr hand, and a date at the 3 o'clock position.
