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.

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.
