It's time to do a last minute holiday sale of a few pieces....I have been swamped with a new biz that I will be launching soon (to be announced), so not had time to get things posted....So I have committed finally in getting some things up....Up next on the Holiday Sale....
Fairfax Zodiac Chronograph
Movement: Valjoux 72
Price: $2950 USD or OBO
Where should I even begin with this crazy watch. The dial is marked "Fairfax", the movement is a Zodiac Val 72, which is identical to a Heuer Val 72 found in Autavia and Carrera's, even the caseback is similar to the Heuer Carrera 2447, except it's engraved Zodiac. My best educated guess is that this was made by Heuer for Zodiac, and Zodiac did a private label for Fairfax....that was a mouthful! LOL!
In any case, the dial looks similar to a Heuer Carrera 2447S (1st Execution), along with the hands, which would not shock me if the hands are the same ones for a 2447. All original Tritium lume seems to be intact on the dial, but I can not say with 100% certainty that the hands are original lume or relumed at a later time. I was told by the previous owner that it was serviced (bought it a year ago)
