Title: I need help identifying a Zodiac that was left to me by my Grandad...
Post by: JennieG0510 on May 04, 2013, 04:39:34 AM
I wonder if anybody can help me? I have a watch that was left to me by my Grandad, its been sat in my loft for YEARS! He died 29 years ago...
I want to try and identify it, I have been to a watch specialist and he has said that to a collector it could be invaluable, but he certified the watch itself (bar the strap) is 14k gold... he couldnt be sure what model it was, or when it was made. I would love to get some clarification if anybody knows the model, year etc.
On the back of the watch it has a marking that looks like a 'J' with an arrow through the top with 14K next to it.
It has 'Rowi' on the wrist clasp. Any advice help is gratefully appreciated. Thanks in advance.

That is a 14K dress watch from the early 1970's. That is as good as it gets.

Hi there,
The "Rowi" on the clasp could stand for a company from Pforzheim Germany which made aftermarkt bands for watches.
But this is a nice one which fits well, too.
