    Got these old ladies from my mother - all informatuon appreciated

    Hi, I got these old swiss ladies watches from my mother. None are currently in working order and I was wondering would some of them be worth servicing and/or repairing?
    I know that ladies watches are not as valued as are mens watches but especially those Zenith and old swiss made Leijona (Lion, made for finnish market) are quite lovely pieces.
    Those other two I couldn't open.

    Commercially the Zenith may make sense to repair but with the others it would be for sentimental reasons.

    Thank you, something like that I thought it might be. Any knowledge what Zenith model this might be and from what year?

    Have to say though that also this "Leijona" seems to be a lovely, remarkable and possibly quite old watch.

    There is "9 51"written inside case back. Could it be making month and year?

    The casing of Leijona is also quite strange. You have to remove glass and then take hole movement out with dial on it just to see it. I have seen similar in some pocket watches but never on old wrist watches.

    As stated on the Zenith forum, the Zenith is from 1968-69 and has an (in house) Cal. 1733.
