Zodiac’s Aerospace GMT was extremely popular when it first debuted in 1966. The Aerospace GMT was an evolution of Zodiac’s Super Sea Wolf dive watch. More recently, watch fanatics have been hoping for a modern release of either watch, so Zodiac’s announcement of the addition of the Aerospace GMT to its neo-vintage line-up in 2019 was very welcomed, so much so that the limited edition run is already sold out online.
It’s not hard to figure out why the watch went so fast. The Aerospace GMT came in two different colour options: a black and grey model and a baby blue and burnt orange. The colours split the bezel of the watch, coming in at 6 and 12. The Aerospace GMT was sized at a comfortable 40mm and came on a three-link bracelet and featured a date window at 3:00. Even though Zodiac is now a part of the Fossil family, the Aerospace used an ETA 2893-2 movement with a 38-hour power reserve rather than one of Fossil’s STP movements.
Both styles of watches were limited to only 182 pieces. If you’re hoping to find one for yourself, about your only option will be to find one in a boutique, where you’ll pay USD$1,695.
