Zodiac Auto-Graphic 18K - anyone know when it's from?

I am a Zodiac newbie. I found a Sea Wolf an an estate sale a few months ago and like it very much. Shortly after, I ran across this Zodiac and am curious as to it's vintage and model and whether anyone knows of a similar watch It is marked "Auto-graphic" and my jeweler says it is marked 18K inside the case, although he had it closed before I could attempt any pics of the movement. It came in a clamshell case and had a Speidel band that I've removed. Any help appreciated!

Of course I meant Roto-Graphic. I used to collect cameras!

I'm guessing due to the "water-resistant" script on the case back ...1970's

That model is from the 50s but yours has been redialed. You may find it in the catalogs though.
Collecting Zodiacs is not for the meek; be an educated collector.

Thanks Butch, I was wondering about the dial - I suppose the hyphenated "Rotographic" gives it away, or did Zodiac actually do that at some point?

Redial indeed. Wring script. And Zodiac logo is tilt.
I believe hands are wrong as well.
