    It's not a familiar brand to me at least.
    Please post some photos of the dial case and movement and we might be able to ID the maker.

    Never ever heard of Zelma but it might be a private label brand (PLB) production. PLB watches have been very common those times (60ties/70ties). Pics of watch and movement would be very helpful.

    will try to post a picture
    the dial has the name Zelma and a star above it -has the one of Zenith
    and from my knowledge the movement must be an ETA and it is writen 2788 -so this must be the calibre

    Ranfft shows that family of Eta movements were made from 1969 to 1982. The 2788 would be an automatic with day and date.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    No, this watch is not particularly valuable. Note that this watch has nothing to do with Zenith. Please read the sticky posts at the top of the forum concerning watch valuations. For the reasons stated there watch valuations are not done here.

    dear JimH thank for the reply
    no certainly I am not asking about a valuation
    I am asking only if it is a watch that I should keep, made and pay for a service etc or live it
    thanks again
