    Catching up on incomings...here's a run of the mill 1960 Sporto - Zenith's everyman watch

    [​IMG]

    Raised, stylized numbers that say "it's the sixties - the future is now!"

    I never understood why Zenith patented the Sporto cases - I don't see what is special about them

    The hook that made me buy this one is the pretty, apparently untouched cal. 40 with its plastic dustcover perfectly intact.

    Good thing I know that U:00 translates to 6:00 in English.

    I got a laff out of that too. It's one thing when the numbers are painted, but honestly, is it necessary to put in a fragmentary digit in a pressed metal dial? It wouldn't have been ok to just put in a dash or lume dot?::screwloose::
