Not bad. I kind of like it.

I like it a lot,but my days of buying chronos have passed.

I noticed that it was stated in the video that it was an ISA quartz movement. I contacted Zodiac last week inquiring as to the movement used and got this response.

Antima was a low end house for many years, really cheap to almost decent merch.

It appears in the following from the 3flushes library that Zodiac acquired an Antima building in 2013- or a building in Antima- I couldn't find too much more and nothin about the work that's done in that building other than the link; found nothing to indicate any manufacturer makes movements there. The link has an interesting time line and Hx about Zodiac- I think you'd like it foggy.
