I've come across a Zenith 126-5-6 in the market (yes, the itch has come back) and was hoping for any insight on it.
It's at 34mm, which is the lowest I can go, but I do like the minute tracker, and I've been waiting to get my first Zenith. (Edit: I noticed the smaller numerals give you the 24 hr. clock indications, which I haven't seen in that particular layout before.)
It's advertised as a Sporto, which I've seen spelled out on the dial for other watches, but it's only indicated on the case back for this one:
The seller dates it in the 1960s, but the movement serial number (and if I'm right that it's a cal. 126-5-6) dates it between 1950-55.
Unfortunately, the case is blinding me with its polished-ness, and it's not as hard-edged as I would prefer. Also, what is that design on the back?
Finally, my understanding is that the crown would have a star on it. I can't tell what's on the crown, but there seems to be something there.
Alrighty, thanks again folks for any input you may have.
