Your dad's watch is a cool find.

The price tag is interesting. The 1067 EAOS could be a catalog reference but I think it is a cost code — the 1067 being Oct '67 and the letters corresponding to numbers.

My stepdad used a code like this to indicate when an item came into stock and he had 10 numbers, 0-9, assigned to randomly selected letters which then indicated his cost read right to left. He used two other letters for 00.

It was also common back then for jewelry stores, camera shops and Sew fourth, or wholesalers who didn't want to print catalogs or price lists with wholesale prices listed to use 10 letter words as a key.
