*Movement & Specs: ETA 2824
*Chosen By: John Lind
* Why?: The Astrographic 2000 is a collectible commemorative of Zodiac's unique and distinctive mystery dial Astrographics that were introduced in 1971. Their hallmark is an orbiting red dot seconds marker and floating hour/minute hands that have no (easily) visible means of attachement. In 2000, while Zodiac was struggling financially and ownership rapidly changed hands a couple times, a limited production of no more than 500 each were made with black, blue and silver dials in square and round cases. The Astrographic 2000 is an update of the original concept using modern materials, design and construction, with solid stainless cases, heavy solid link bracelets, sapphire crystals, and high grade 25j 28.8k bph ETA 2824-2 movements. With a MSRP of $1295, it broke the $1000 PMW limit, but street prices when first released were under that. They can be bought now (in 2006) for under $500, if one can be found, and there are still a small handful of NOS to be had. "In the flesh," they are a beauty to behold. With Fossil's ownership of Zodiac since 2002, and the nearly complete elimination of mechanicals from Zodiac's collections, it's unlikely we'll see another mechanical Astrographic in the foreseeable future.
