Zodiac Astrographic 50th Anniversary Limited Edition of 182 Wrist Watch

There's something wonderfully novel about the "mystery dial" of the Zodiac Astrographic. From a design perspective, it sticks out even from the crop of wild designs that proliferated in the '60s and '70s. And that's saying something when you consider the barrel cases, UFO cases, gradient dials, and far out color schemes that were popular back then. This era of watch design saw some very unique designs. It also takes folks a considerable amount of time to understand how it works, especially if they're not watch enthusiasts. The recently released re-edition features slight updates from the original model launched in '69, but it certainly hasn't lost any of its oddball charm. In fact, the changes that have occurred over the past 50 years in science, technology, and space travel have perhaps made the watch even more interesting. The design of the Astrographic is very much a product of its time, when retro-futurism was in full effect, and Zodiac has found an interesting angle to build a relevant story around the new edition of the Astrographic in 2019 that's completely distinct from the '69 model. The watch is limited to 182 pieces in both a gold plated and stainless steel case execution.

Comes with Generic Watch Box
