This beautifully designed piece – Pisces was manufactured by Swiss watch company Zodiac.  A vintage model produced in circa late 1950s with thick 18k gold-plated case.  The dial signed Glorious and interestingly, the stainless steel caseback signed Antimagnetic.  It has a plastic bubble glass on top.  This watch would fit to be a special item for those who born in the month of Pisces.

On the wrist, the impression of the 3-dimensional dial is gorgeous
