ZODIAC GMT DIVE WATCH

THE ZODIAC AEROSPACE GMT CAME OUT AFTER THE 1968 TET OFFENSIVE IN VIETNAM. FROM 1969 THROUGH 1971, MORE OPERATIONS WERE CARRIED OUT IN VIETNAM THAN EVER BEFORE.. DUE TO THE FACT WE WERE DRAWING DOWN. BEGINNING IN 1969, THE PX/BX AND R&R DESTINATIONS OFFERED BOTH THE POPULAR SEA WOLF AND THE ZODIAC AEROSPACE GMT 24HR HACKING DIVE WATCH. .

WITH TWO TIME ZONES A SOLDIER/OFFICER WOULD SET THE NORMAL 12 HOUR PER REVOLUTION TIME TO THEIR HOME/USA TIME AND USE THE RED 24 HOUR HAND WITH MILITARY TIME FOR IN COUNTRY.

THE GMT WAS SECOND TO THE SEA WOLF. THOUGH, HAD THE ZODIAC AEROSPACE GMT BEEN OFFERED EARLIER, IT WOULD HAVE SWEPT THE SEA WOLF OVER… AFTER ALL, BOTH ARE DIVE WATCHES…

I INVESTED 110.00 + SHIP FROM SELLER ON EBAY FOR THIS GMT AEROSPACE. SELLER STATED IT RAN BUT WOULD NOT KEEP TIME. WHEN IT ARRIVED AND I WOUND IT, IT RAN FOR 5 MINUTES AND STOPPED. THIS IS WHAT I HATE, 60% OF ALL INVESTMENTS ARE LIKE THIS ONE. WHILE EVEN I HAVE OCCASIONAL PROBLEMS WITH WATCHES ARRIVING WITH A HAND LOOSE, OR A NEW MAIN SPRING PROBLEM, OR SOME OTHER MINOR PROBLEM, I NOT ONLY WARRANTY MY WORK–BUT I NEVER DESCRIBE AN ITEM INCORRECTLY AND DEFINITELY DO NOT PLACE IT IF I KNOW THERE IS/ARE ANY PROBLEM/PROBLEMS.

BUT IT WAS THE AWESOME 600.00 ZODIAC GMT, I FIGURED 110.00 TO BUY , 140.00 IN PARTS, SUPPLIES, LUME, ETC TO REBUILD. NEW 85.00 [TOP STAINLESS STEEL NOT LOW GRADE] BRACELET, NEW CRYSTAL, SEALS, ENAMEL, PLUS 12.5% TO EBAY/PAYPAL, 18% OF GROSS TO SHOP OVERHEAD, IT STILL LEFT ROOM FOR A SMALL PROFIT WHILE OFFERING A GREAT DEAL.

IMG_5465.JPG (137518 bytes)

THE RED GMT HOUR HAND IS A TRUE 24 HOUR HAND. IT WORKS IN UNISON WITH THE REGULAR HOUR HAND, BUT WILL COUNT AN ENTIRE 24 HOURS EACH SINGLE REVOLUTION .WHILE THE MAIN HOUR HAND MAKES TWO REVOLUTIONS EVERY 24 HRS.. WHEN OVER-HAULED, THE HANDS ARE PLACED BACK OF THE DIAL AFTER THE DATE JUMPS ALL POINTED TO TDC. [TDC = DIAL #12 MARKER BEZEL 24 HR MARKER]

THE RED GMT HOUR HAND POINTS TO TDC , YOU THEN PLACE THE STANDARD HOUR HAND AT TDC, THE MINUTE HAND TDC AND SECONDS TDC. THE RED GMT HAND WILL TURN A FULL 24 HOURS IN ONE REVOLUTION. PULLING CROWN HACKS [STOPS] WATCH. DATE IS SET BY CHANGING 21-24HR. BACK TO 21 THEN PAST 24, REPEAT, REPEAT….

SO:
REGULAR HOUR AND MINUTE HANDS OPERATE IN NORMAL FASHION. YOU SET THE TIME TO WHAT EVER ZONE YOUR ARE IN OR AN SECOND GMT ZONE.

THE RED ILLUMINATED TIP GMT TRUE 24 HOUR HAND IS FOR A SECOND TIME ZONE AND/OR TO KEEP TRACK OF YOUR LOCAL TIME ZONE IN MILITARY TIME.

THE BEZEL. THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF DIVE WATCH BEZEL IS FOR ELAPSED TIME WHILE UNDER WATER. THE ZODIAC AEROSPACE GMT 24HR BEZEL IS FOR SECONDARY TIME ZONE OR AN ADDITIONAL 24 HR TIME ZONE.. AND CAN BE USED FOR ELAPSED TIME FOR DIVING.

WHEN SETTING UP A SECOND ZONE, THE SIMPLE TURNING OF THE 24 HOUR BEZEL TO THE CORRECT POSITION FOR THE ZONE ALLOWS YOU TO VIEW IT TO SEE WHAT TIME IT IS WHERE YOU ARE AND, SAY, CALIFORNIA.

THIS OFFERS THE ABILITY TO ADJUST THE BEZEL TO ANY OTHER TIME ZONE, FORWARD OR BACKWARD =IF YOUR ON EAST COAST AND ALSO WANT WEST COAST TIME TURN BEZEL TO THREE HOURS BACKWARDS. NO GUESSING IS REQUIRED. THE RED HAND WILL BE 3 HOURS BEHIND-

SO, THE BEZEL AND RED GMT HAND ARE FOR YOUR SECOND Z0NE OR TO HAVE BOTH REGULAR TIME AND 24HR MILITARY TIME YOU CAN TURN BEZEL AND FOR ELAPSED TIMING FOR DIVING.

THE RED HAND CANNOT BE TURNED OR ADJUSTED ON ITS OWN. T

MOVEMENT WORKING FINE AFTER OFF SET CANON PINION REPAIR
SORRY. I WAS USING SMALL POWER SHOT W/NO LIGHT. I JUST SET UP AN AREA WITH LIGHT FOR FUTURE VIDEO, IT IS FAST, USE STANDARD CAMERA, WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER AND LOAD TO YOUTUBE THEN DOWNLOAD THE FLV.

IMG_5451.JPG (142162 bytes)

THIS ZODIAC CAME OUT GREAT. THE BEZEL ENAMEL WAS APPLIED BY TORCH ON THE BENCH. IT CAME OUT AWESOME. THERE ARE A FEW AREAS ALONG THE NIGHT/DAY DEMARCATION LINES, THE 18 AND 6 AREA, BUT THEY ARE MINOR SEEING THAT WE WANT THE WATCH TO BE WHAT IT IS, A 1969/1970 ZODIAC AUTOMATIC, HACKING, TRUE 24 HOUR, AEROSPACE GMT.

NOTE: WHITE IS 2 PART P0RCELAIN REPAIR EPOXY. MY SKULL RING HAS BEEN STUFF HAS NOT FADED OR CHIPPED… FURTHER DOWN INFO…

IMG_5280.JPG (146372 bytes)

THE ILLUMINATION IS 3 TIMES THE AMOUNT IT WAS ORIGINALLY. HANDS WERE ILLUMINATED, INCLUDING THE TIP OF SECONDS. THE RED TRUE 24 HOUR HAND IN RED COLOR IS ORIGINAL. ONLY THE ILLUMINATION WAS REAPPLIED. I TOOK LIBERTY TO MAKE THE SILVER SWEEPS SECONDS HAND RED TO SEE BETTER. LOOK, THIS TIME PIECE IS A RARE PRODUCT. IT HAS 12 HOURS HANDS AND A 24 HOUR HAND, A BEZEL WITH 24 HOURS THAT CAN BE SET TO READ A SECOND GMT ZONE. THUS, THIS TIME PIECE DOES NOT RELY ON IT’S VINTAGE FACT ALONE.

IMG_5200.JPG (146742 bytes)

THIS IS THE ORIGINAL DIAL IS MINTY MINTY MINTY. ONLY PROBLEM IS THE TRITIUM, IT IS DEAD NOTE THE “T” LEFT & RIGHT OF “SWISS MADE”
I DECIDED TO RE-ILLUMINATE –BUT WILL ADD WIDER AREAS AT BOTTOM OF EACH MARKER SO IT WILL HAVE SUPER BRIGHT MARKERS AND PUSH ILLUMINATION TO BEZEL AND COMPLETE DIAL. NOTE THE COLOR DIFFERENCE OF MARKERS. ALSO, THE BEZEL IS HALF DARK HALF LIGHT. THESE FACTORY ADDED FEATURES WERE CREATED TO COINCIDE WITH DAY/NIGHT 24 HOUR GMT HAND

IMG_2879.JPG (113888 bytes)

MORE FUN THAN SILLY-PUTTY
THIS STUFF WILL REMOVE DUST, FINGER PRINTS
AND SO MUCH MORE FROM DIALS MOVEMENTS ET AL

WHITE AF LUMINOVA
COMES IN OTHER COLORS MIX 50/50

IMG_5441.JPG (122902 bytes)

I DID NOT REMOVE THE COLOR FROM THE BEZEL SERRATIONS. NORMALLY I WOULD FLIP AND USE A SOFT 4 INCH BRASS WIRE BRUSH TO TAKE DOWN TO METAL. BUT THE OLD BEZEL COLOR ALSO WAS IN BETWEEN SERRATIONS. USE WILL FURTHER SMOOTH IT OUT. AFTER ALL, I SURELY DO NOT WANT TO ACCIDENTALLY EFFECT THE BEZEL FINISH. IT TOOK 3 DAYS AND 59.00 IN ENAMEL. YES, I HAVE THE BALANCE OF FOUR COLORS, BUT WHEN WILL I NEED IT? DENISE WAS READY TO SHOOT ME. I COULD NOT GET THE COLOR I WANTED. I HAD TO REMOVE THE FINISH AND START OVER THREE TIMES!

IMG_5444.JPG (145155 bytes)

NOW, EXCITING NEWS, THE BEZEL DOES RATCHET ON TOP OF THE SYNTHETIC GENUINE RED SYNTHETIC FACTORY CORUNDUM RUBY RATCHET JEWEL. GOT THAT?

ffffffffffffIMG_5240.jpg (75617 bytes)

IT RATCHETS LIKE IT SHOULD WHEN TURING AND SETTING. THAT MEANS IT LOCKS. MOST SEA WOLF AND GMT BEZELS ARE LOOSE AFTER 5 YEARS!

IT IS CLOSE TO THE LINK DESIGN. MOST OF THESE WERE SOLD

IMG_5414.JPG (152465 bytes)

BUCKLE IS NICE. ADDS A LITTLE EXTRA. THE ZODIAC AEROSPACE GMT HIT THE PX/BX R&R DESTINATIONS AFTER THE 1968 TET OFFENSIVE IN VIETNAM. THOUGH WE WERE BEGINNING TO DRAW DOWN, MORE OPERATIONS WERE CARRIED OUT THAN EVER BEFORE. ,

THE POPULAR SEA WOLF HAD GREAT COMPETITION IN THIS GMT DIVER WITH TWO TIME ZONES; ONE BEING TRUE 24 HRS. A SOLDIER/OFFICER WOULD SET THE NORMAL 12 HOUR PER REVOLUTION TIME TO THEIR HOME, USA TIME AND USE THE RED 24 HOUR HAND WITH MILITARY TIME FOR IN COUNTRY.

THE GMT WAS SECOND TO THE SEA WOLF ONLY DUE TO TIME -NO PUN INTENDED . HAD THIS GMT BEEN OFFERED EARLIER. IT WOULD HAVE SWEPT THE SEA WOLF OVER… AFTER ALL, BOTH ARE DIVE WATCHES…

THE CASE AND 20ATM CASE BACK ARE THE SAME AS THE ZODIAC SEA WOLF
NOTE IT IS SIGNED “AEROSPACE” UNDER THE ZODIAC THE MOVEMENT IS THE 75B NEARLY THE SAME AS THE SEA WOLF HACKING VERSION, BUT BETTER DUE TO ITS TRUE 24 GEARING AND HAND. SNAP BACKS WERE POPULAR IN THE BEGINNING OF THE WRIST WATCH CRAZE BUT BY WWII 85% OF ALL WRIST WATCHES WERE SCREW DOWN. THEN IN 1960 BETTER SNAP BACKS APPEARED AGAIN, FROM FROM 1964 THROUGH 1974 SOME OF THE BEST WATCH COMPANIES WENT BACK TO SNAP BACK, THE DIFFERENCE WAS IN THE TOOLS EQUIPMENT AND SEAL MATERIALS THIS IS THE FAMOUS ZODIAC SNAP BACK CASE UTILIZED IN ALL SEA WOLFS AND GMT AND THE GLYCINE AIRMEN.

IMPORTANT, THE ZODIAC OFFSET CP HAS ITS GEAR AND ATTACHED TUBE. WE ARE ATTEMPTING TO PERMANENTLY TIGHTEN TUBE W/O BREAKING OF CRACKING
. FACT IS, THE INDENT INTO TUBE SHOULD BE AT HALF WAY MARK BETWEEN TO OF GEAR AND THE TOP OF TUBE. A SPECIAL INDENTING PIN MUST BE WORKED/MADE, CAUSE THE TUBE AREA IS EXTREMELY THIN. IN HEIGHT. HAVING WRONG TOOL COULD CAUSE THE INDENTING PIN TO STRIKE TOO CLOSE TO TUBE TOP. YOU WANT THIS RIGHT
