Description

This might seem a simple three-hander watch. But it isn’t. Look closely at the dial and you will be able to see that the hour numerals don’t show the usual times. 12 o’clock at 6 position? Well, this was made intentionally by Zodiac in an attempt to create a perfect pilots watch. It shows all the 24h of each day in just one rotation of the hands. So your usual 10:10, now it’s 20:10! This is what’s commonly called a 24h watch. Grab this cool and rare watch now or regret it later!
