Yes, that is from the late 60's or early 70s, definitely the mod style of the day. It is gold plated. $90 is a good price, especially if it has the Zodiac band. Remember, you will need a service before wearing it!

The shallowness of the engraving may be due to previous polishing during services. It is what it is. Share pics if you get it.

I see you are new here!  :welc

Thank you for reading the rules and posting in the appropriate place!

Looking on eBay, I have found a watch that looks identical to the one in the antique store (including an identical band).  The item # is 153547410363

One thing that gave me pause when I viewed it in the store was the relative shallowness of the etching on the case back.

Any input would be appreciated!

Hi all --

I know this is going to not be as useful without pictures, but I am not going to be able to go back for pictures until tomorrow.  Until then, I figured I would see what I could find out!

I was perusing a local antique store and saw an interesting Zodiac watch. The watch was a squarish shape, brass colored.  The watch dial simply said "Zodiac" along the top, and "Automatic" (or maybe automatique?) along the bottom.  It had a date window and a red second hand.  Along the side of the case, in between the lugs, was a star emblem in a box and two words that for the life of me I could not read even under magnification.  The case back had what looked to be a scales of justice emblem, the zodiac watch symbol, among other things I forgot to note.  The bracelet was a similar brass color (that matched the watch) and had an almost speigel like quality to it, but very tight/not as flexible.   This watch screams late 60s, early-to-mid 70s style to me.

I have never seen a zodiac watch that looked quite like this.  They were asking $90 for it.  It ran, but obviously god knows when it was last serviced.  The crown wound the watch and changed the date as it should.

Does my admittedly general, imperfect description ring any bells as to the kind of watch it could be?  Do these 70s-era Zodiacs have any collector interest such that $90 is a decent price?  I will add pictures as soon as I can!  Thanks for any and all info!

Oh, sorry.  Yeah, it doesn't particularly float my boat either.

I was referring to THAT one. The one that came with that model.

As a matter of fact, every band on every model of Marine Life was not comfortable to me.

Are you referring to the steel bracelets?  I prefer those on all my watches, actually.

I liked those. Never cared for wearing the bands though.

Not a great picture as it's raining outside and I took this was my phone, but at least it's on my wrist.  It only came with 1 extra link and even with that installed it's still a bit snug.  Nothing losing about 20 lbs. won't fix!
