The Zodiac Astrographic SST (split second timing) 36000 VPH (high frequency ) movement was the first 36kvph ever to hit the market and was   guaranteed to keep time to within a minute a month.

The Zodiac Astrographic SST utilized a "Mystery Dial" made famous in the fifties. Instead of hands, three plastic discs were utilized; one each for the hour, minute and second hand. 

The use of these clear plastic discs with hands and a red dot painted on them appear to float above the dial.

Instead of markers painted or attached to the dial, the Zodiac Astrographicrystal has a Chapter Ring and Zodiac Center Logo painted onto the underside of the Mineral Glass Crystal.
