1990s Zodiac Red Dot (Ref. 113.13.30) W/ Box
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. Keeping this in mind, Zodiac is one of the more undervalued Swiss timepiece companies to come from this "golden era" of sports watches. From then, Zodiac went on to produce countless other quality sport and dress models that to this day remain at an affordable price point but still carry the colorful Zodiac charm.
The Zodiac ref. 113.13.30 is an awesome and versatile watch, weighing in at a modest 36mm the "Red Dot" diver would make for a functional and understated piece for a man or a perfect oversized/sporty option for a lady.

The strong case appears to have been lightly polished in the past and retains full symmetrical and full lugs that still retain their factory chamfers. The fully graded black bezel insert is in near perfect condition, showing no major signs of use or fading, the pearl at the 12 o'clock remains intact as well and has aged to match the dial nicely. The caseback retains all of its factory engravings in clear and visible condition. The watch will come supplied on a 2pc rubber tropic strap.
The semi-glossy dial is in superb condition, showing no major signs of aging. The tritium lume plots have achieved a light green patina, which is common for Zodiacs, and show no degradation under U.V. light inspection. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly, under U.V. light inspection the hands show no degradation or lume loss.
The watch comes with its original box. The watch is keeping time and functioning perfectly, previous service history is unknown.
