Hi Evg...,
As this is a really old post, you've probably already figured this out.  I was searching Kingline here this morning and stumbled on your question and was curious as well.
The "modele depose" just means the case is a registered design.  I assume this provided some sort of protection against copies of the case.  I suspect the J * B stamp is the hallmark of the case manufacturer.  I tried searching to figure out who that might be but didn't find anything to report.
Funny thing though, I did a search on "modele depose J B watch" and the first several images that popped up had identical cases to your Zodiac but the dials had a couple different names I have never heard of before.
