FS: Zodiac Panda Dial Cal 12 "Heuer Carrera 1153s" JB Champion

For Sale is an early 1970's vintage Zodiac chronograph watch, white Panda dial configuration with two black subregisters and date. This watch shares a lot of design elements with the Heuer 1153S and the dial under certain lighting conditions still shows the Heuer shield and "CARRERA" insignia. Serial number and original model designation still visible. The watch is powered by a Chronomatic Calibre 12 / Zodiac Cal 90 movement with a 42 hour power reserve. Item is in good used condition, TZ Rated conservatively at 83%, with some scratches and dings throughout the unpolished case, almost no aging to the finish on the dial, and minimal tritium lume loss. Includes a JB Champion Zodiac bracelet with flex fit expansion. All text is complete and clear. Original tritium lume on hands and dial, with very little loss. Due to the lack of a running seconds hand exact timing cannot be accurately determined, but showing about a minute gain per week; service history unknown. Case, crown, pushers, bezel, insert, dial, hands are all original. Movement, chronograph function and crown are operating as intended, and pushers are very solid.
