Clebar Find

I found this Clebar at a local thrift shop. Should Clean up really nice. Does anyone know the model name? Thanks.
Answer:

No name. Most vintage watches don't have names.
I had an idea that Clebar was a sub brand of Zodiac but not 100% on that.
Cheers, Neil.
Answer:
You see a lot of chronographs from Clebar.
I'm not sure if Clebar had an independent history before Zodiac or not.
Answer:
I have had the back off. Surprisingly clean and regularly serviced(scribed service dates on inside of back)They date back to the earliest of 1979-1996.I am assuming it's probably from the mid 70's. Maybe some else knows better. PS Why the "pi" symbol on the ring at the 6 digit?
Answer:
This is an engineer's watch with a old fashinoned slide rule function.
π is a specific value used to calculate the area and circumference of circles. I can see the value of having that marked off on the slide rule, although I've forgotten how to use them.
Hope this helps,

Answer:
And you can tell it's an Engineer's slide rule rather than the more common Pilot's slide rules because "1" is at 12 o'clock instead of "6".

Answer:
Figured out how to use the slide rule. It does multiplication and division. Neat stuff!
