These are the ones I currently own after selling a few. There are a couple more I will probably sell and a few more I'd like to own, although low priority at this moment. Among the most affordable Swiss Made watches, unique styling, and decent quality.

Always liked Zodiac's bang for the buck, but never saw any of their styles that grabbed me. The ZMX-02 was about as close as I got after seeing some really good pics of it.

That one is interesting, Datsun. Could it be from the ZMX line?

The Fossil Era is the current one. Fossil inc. bought the Zodiac brand in 2001. Then they bought 3 other Swiss companies to produce the watches.

Just recently became a Zodiac owner. Purchased both of mine from foghorn


Wore this one a lot on my trip to Cali with my kids. Very comfortable white strap my daughter picked out notwithstanding

And a new Oceanaire with white dial just arrived. Love both of these watches. Great value for the $$$$$


Now looking at perhaps a V7750 model and another Oceanaire. Currently looking at a vintage Zodiac that is for sale at ebay. Will have to see how high it goes.

You may not like that white strap but I would really like to have one just like that, white deep reef on white rubber. I don't think you can actually buy that combo.

I am digging the brand loyalty. Refreshing; a small thing in life brings pleasure. Live it up, noble rooster.
