    The Longines is setting off some alarms in my head; I would like to see more photos of that one. The font doesn't look quite right to me, the dial is suspiciously clean, and I'm not sure the hands are correct. Sometimes a single photo doesn't give the full picture, but I'd want to take a closer look.

    Other than that, aside from some replaced crowns, I'm not seeing any concerns that are immediately obvious based on a quick visual inspection.

    Zodiacs look good. Does the one with case #712 756 have signed crown?

    Well, at least the first Zodiac has an original movement:

    Whether the Zodiac Cal. 71 is actually an Adolf Schild Cal. AS 1700, I cannot say for certain - according to Ranfft, both the Cal.s 70 and 72 are actually semi in house movements looking rather different to yours:

    I'm open to the idea that the Longines is ok, but what are you demonstrating by rotating the photo? The font still looks a little dicey to me, and off-center.

    Zodiac 71 is legit for this model. Coincides with code on case back: 712 756. First two digits in its six-number code is the movement number.
