I bought this Zodiac ZMX 02 several months ago and it hardly saw any wrist time due to the fact that the skeleton hands werevirtually impossible for my aging eyes to see. Here is the watch in it's original condition.




In light of the fact that I couldn't easily see the time I decided to have my watchmaker paint the hands. First they were painted red but there wasn't enough contrast between the red hands and the black dial. Then I went with white and still no go.




So after a little battle with Fossil Canada the woman in charge of Zodiac relented and shipped off a set of replacement hands thatwere solid, after 10 minutes at my watchmakers shop she was all done.

Man, it's good to have this watch on my wrist. It was very frustrating not being able to wear a watch you really like either because it was in having the hands painted or I just couldn't see the time. So here is what my ZMX 02 looks like now. Needless to say, I am very happy to have it back on my wrist and the best part is the fact that my watchmaker didn't charge a penny as he has done many times before.

I suggest a suitably expensive holiday gift to the watchmaker to acknowledge your appreciation. He has done an awesome job.
Thanks very much. Trust me, I treat him pretty well. He's from Holland and he loves dark chocolate so I keep him well supplied which makes him happy.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments. You can't imagine how frustrating it was to have this watch that you paid a good dollar for that was basically useless due to the fact that you had to angle the watch just the right way in order to see the time.

I am so happy that I put in the effort to make this a useful watch.
