    Zodiac Watch // 1960's probably? Unable to identify movement//

    Hello guys,

    I just bought a Zodiac for my wife. It's a very old model, I assume, it loses -+ 10s/ day so it runs pretty smooth.

    However, I'd like to find out some more details about the movement. I'm not able to identify it.

    Please see some photos below.

    Maybe an ETA 1070:

    Nice solid gold model.
    Could you, using magnifier, read code (3-4 digits) under the balance wheel. It will help to quickly identify the caliber.

    There could/should be something marked under the balance wheel (logo and number).

    A bit puzzled here: Nice model - solid gold, or nice solid model - golden color?

    I thought there is a hallmark on lug. But now I see it is the hole.
    Gold plated.

    All good and all, but those were the pictures provided by the seller.
    I've tried opening the caseback and I didn't succeed. I don't have a tool or a knife that's so tiny so I wouldn't damage the case.

    I'll have to settle with it as it is and open it up when/if the case might occur.

    Thanks for your replies, I found a great deal for it and my wife is really happy with it.
