    Thought I'd Never Buy Quartz but...

    This Zodiac is so nice looking.
    And it comes in at less than $500.
    What's the catch?
    Does anybody own one of these or any other modern Zodiac?
    How are they with regard to fit and finish, durability, etc.
    Now I just have to decide which color I like better.
    Thanks

    Can't comment on Zodiac, but I personally enjoy having a single quartz watch in my collection. I find my Tag makes for a good beater/occasional weekend watch, as it never has to be reset for time or date. Don't get me wrong, I love mechanical and automatic watches, but there is utility in having quartz.

    That's why I like to keep an Accutron in the watch box, to set my other watches against. :)

    I been eying this one. Not sure what movement is inside. Previously Zodiac used ETA but since Swatch decided to limit sales of movements ... it become more in house.
    First gen quartz Zodiacs were fine and as reliable and any next quartz watch.
    It should be special!

    I've also been eyeing these. Will likely grab one if the right price pops up.

    That is a sharp watch! There’s nothing wrong with owning a quartz. The Zodiac watches I’ve seen look to be good quality.

    I think it's funky. Would definitely wear one.
