    As a quite fresh member I'd like to see lots of pictures of the vintage Zenith you have in your possession.
    I'd like to say hello and welcome everyone!

    Of course the best way to see many pictures of Vintage Zeniths is simply to read through all the posts in the Zenith Forum. Vintage is pretty much all the Zenith guys around here collect :D .

    Nice watch by the way. :thumbsup:

    Mine is a cal 133 from 1848-49. Yours is a cal 133.8 from 1959. The cal 133 beats at 18000 per hour and the cal 133.8 at 21600. The cal 133 has its bumper springs fixed to the piece that stops the rotor, while the 133.8 has its bumper springs attached to the rotor itself.

    My 133 was not a certified chronomètre, but this cal 133.8 was... technically identical to yours and also from 1959.

    That's what I thought. :)

    My other cal 133.8 is a French market one, like yours. I'll post it separately one day.

    Love the Horodate.

    In the category of early movements with date, don't forget the cal. 71

    Very unusual piece! Thanks for sharing. You've photoshopped part of the serial number away, I gather, but there's enough to date the movement to 1952-3, a couple of years before the adoption of all the Martel-based 25xx calibres and the development of the cal 71.

    case number is 900363 and cal number is 401612 - I think that boys from France had their own numbering....
