This Zorba today, an unrecorded brand name, but is certain to have been made by Émile Cattin with the dial depicting his Gallic cockerel logo, more usually seen on his Mortima-branded watches, and the fact that it runs on his 1j Cattin C66 movement.

Stylistically, this one looks to date from the 1950s and if not exactly “Super De Luxe” as advertised, Cattin’s watches had a solid reputation as being robust and reliable. And cheap.

As an aside, the Cattin Co. was sold in 1990 to a Canary Islands company making sunglasses who now use the Mortima brand name and the same rooster logo for their sunnies.

This enforced break has given me a chance to dig up some watches from the back of the project drawer.  A new glass, re align the hands and a watch I find quite nice
