    Vintage Watch ID

    I'm hoping to get some information on this watch. I've owned it for years and don't know much about it.
    It is white gold, with a pave diamond face. The back of the case is stamped 14k and it looks something like this " @_14k_ ". The line continues under the numbers. The inside of the case cover is stamped "955060". The movement, as best as I can read, is marked "17 Jewels" with the word seventeen spelled out beneath that. It is further marked "Solar Watch Corp" and beneath that says "adjusted". It appears there are two letters before the word adjusted, but I can't make them out.
    I've attached some photos and would appreciate any insights.
    Thanks!

    I'm thinking 1960s but could really be anywhere from the 1950s to the 1980s. Very difficult to tell with this style of watch
    The movement might say "unadjusted" which was stamped on many Swiss movements to get around customs duties when they were imported and cased in North America. (They were adjusted of course.)

    Ahh ha!

    I knew I'd seen that movement before but couldn't find it.

    I've found it now .. a Juvenia 765 (or ETA 2510 which it is based on)
