Zodiac Aerospace GMT Cal. 75
Here we have an all original C-1960s Zodiac Aerospace GMT (ref. 752-934) with its bakelite Pepsi (red and blue) bezel and gloss black dial. All are original, and mostly untouched. I say mostly because I have personally owned this watch for better than 30 years and in that time the watch has not been polished, refinished or changed in any way.
The dial and hands are original with their original finishes. The case shows the use, mostly the normal bumps you get from daily wear and the case back suffers from a careless watch person trying to open it. But the good side to all of this is everything is original. All of the case original surfaces and angles are there. Just what collecting vintage is all about.
The stainless steel case measures 36 mm without the crown and 42.6 lug to lug. The snap-back case back retains all of its original stampings and is correctly signed “Aerospace”.
Overall an outstanding example of a 60-year-old sports watch.
We just finished a complete ground-up service of this watch. That service included a new mainspring, case back gasket, and crystal. Everything else including the case was cleaned only. The movement was completely disassembled, cleaned, and then correctly lubricated during reassembly. After assembly, it was regulated and the auto winding was checked for efficiency. Servicing vintage watches is what we do. We take pride in our workmanship.
