    Zodiac olympos date issue

    So I have my father's zodiac. and before he gave it to me he had it cleaned and had new Crystal put on. that was about 20 years ago and right now although it ticks when I wear it and it appears to keep good time the date doesn't change when I push the stem in which used to click and change the date it doesn't change though it does feel like it's clicking
    I love the shape. is there an alternate movement that I can put in here even if I needed to change the hands


    so I love the shape.
    is there an alternate movement that I can put in here even if I needed to change the hands an eta at or perhaps even Rondo quartz movement. I just love the shape. my daily watch is a Bertucci's a once again


    By the way I love the shape

    Have you had it serviced during those 20 years?

    Get it repaired. A new movement with new hands would make it a franken watch amost nobody would appreciate.
    Kind regards

    No it sat in a drawer for most of the time. I guess that makes me negligent

    Well I would appreciate it. But I get your point.

    Is it an ETA or other available movement.

    People are asking about 400 for similar watches on eBay. The cosmetics are good. I suppose I should just wear it the get it repaired when I love it.

    I'm not sure why you want to replace the movement. Just take/send it to a reliable watchmaker and they should be able to handily repair it. Then you can continue to love the watch your father gave you. If you post your general location, I'm sure members here can guide you to a watchmaker if you want.

    I have a Zodiac Seawolf from the 70's that had the same date problem. Some years ago it was repaired at The Watchmaker in Stoneham.
