Default Zodiac's Grandrally

Did anyone have time to check out this new Zodiac? Just seeing it guys.

Zodiac's Grandrally has a 41.5mm stainless brushed, and polished stainless
steel case, 100 meter water resistance, nice tachymeter scale inner bezels,
along with cool sunray dials in everything from black, and silver, to cream,
and blue with luminous hands, and markers, quartz chronograph movement,
and either leather strap, or stainless steel bracelet option also.

Just a few pictures...



















Zodiac with more info for you...

Very nice indeed and from a well-known brand. Nice homages if I'm not mistaken but perhaps a little too much for me for a quartz($495 + shipping). Surely they'll sell to the brand fans. Again, thanks for sharing!

I was just watching a YouTube video on these. They're a re-creation of Zodiac's own mechanical chrono from 1975 except the movement is apparently similar to Seiko's meca-quartz in that the chrono second hand sweeps closer to an automatic than typical quartz movements.

For a major brand with a "Swiss movement", I'm almost surprised it isn't priced higher and feel like it's fairly respectable on Zodiac's part.

Thanks again Tom.

Don't mention it guys !! Thank YOU for giving your thoughts on these !

Was just happily surprised to see Zodiac adding quartz models back into the
fold. ..They reminded me of what the company was doing ten, or more years
ago, but were also really refined like their new watches have become.


Wish they were maybe have the price, but still are fun to see.

P.S. enricosonic, didn't know these were similar to Seiko's meca-quartz !
That makes them even cooler now. ..Thanks so much for the info !
