After extensive research, I finally determined that it is indeed a Bialetti: "ABC" stands for "Alfonso Bialetti Crusinallo" and "Zanzibar" is the model name. (Crusinallo is the little town in the Piedmont of Italy where they have been made since 1918.) It is a six-cup pot as it makes about twelve ounces of espresso.
These replacement gaskets from Primula have an outside diameter of 2 13/16 in. and fit even my older aluminum Bialetti moka pot perfectly with no bubbling leaks. They are dishwasher-safe and easy to remove from the pot from cleaning whereas the old gasket was impossible to remove after a year or two. The silicone is simply much more heat-resistant than rubber and shouldn't harden or crack. Bialetti should supply their new coffee makers with these superior silicone gaskets.
Note: This fits the 6-cup aluminum Bialetti moka pot. Their stainless steel models use a 2 7/8 in. gasket, 1/16 in. larger in diameter.
These replacement gaskets are also available with a 2 1/2 in. outside diameter for 3-cup pots and with a 3 3/16 in. outside diameter for 9-cup pots as well.
After one or two uses, the rubber gaskets begin to show signs of wear - the silicone gasket that I've had in place for almost a month still looks brand new. Also, the rubber gaskets attract espresso grounds that stick to them and sometimes have to be removed with a fingernail or scrubbing - no problem with the silicone, just rinse and they're clean. Another benefit is that they are much easier to replace and remove. The rubber ones are quite stubborn, especially once they begin to harden - these just slide in and pop out.
I hope they last as long as it seems they will. So far I'm very happy!
Checking in after six months of use and I'm still VERY impressed with these gaskets. I'm still on the first one and while it has developed a darker color, it is still soft and pliable and working perfectly. These make cleanup after brewing a breeze. Don't know when I've been so impressed with a simple product.
