    A new Lanco and Zenith to the collection, but got no info on them

    Just got this two really nice watches, a Lanco automatic and a Zenith which looks to be from the 30s-40s!? Would like to get some info on them, if possible. I've attached some pics of the watches and their movements:

    Well, the Zenith appears to be from the late 1940s, and the movement's a cal. 106-50:

    Can't see the serial, the picture resolution and quality are far too low.

    I think the Lanco has a variant of Lanco`s first automatic family - 1133 or 1233 depending on size ..maybe a budget variant as the jewel count is a bit low for an automatic and the movement finish looks fairly basic for most Lanco`s - mid 1950`s date wise
    Check out the Ranfft website as I only had a brief glance.

    The serial number for the Zenith watch is: 3620635
