Zodiac Zodiac Olympos Automatic NWW 1875
Zodiac Olympos Automatic
Used but excellent condition Zodiac Olympos, complete with box and papers purchased just over a year ago in June 2020. The watch was originally created in 1961, the Zodiac Olympos is a line of highly creative watches featuring a signature “manta ray” case. Unique to Zodiac, this case design is asymmetrical across the horizontal axis of the watch, which creates the illusion of different length lugs above and below, and moves the crown off-center to two o’clock. The swooping lines of the case are at once elegant and energetic, giving the Olympos a distinct and exciting personality.
Now revived, the Olympos dress watches distill the elegance of the original into a modernized form. The dramatic lines are preserved in the new 37.5mm case, which sports a sapphire crystal and delightfully thin profile at 10mm. Not to be overlooked, the dials are also exceptionally executed, featuring a mix of finishing that creates quadrants of brushed texture along the domed surface. Applied markers and curved hands only add to the high level of fit and finish.
Powering the Olympos is the STP 3-13 caliber. This Swiss-made automatic movement features 26-jewels, date, swan-neck regulator, hand-winding, stop seconds for accurate time setting, a power reserve of 44hr and a frequency of 28,800bph for a smooth sweeping seconds hand.
