    Thank you for all the help in my previous Zenith 135 thread. In the end I got this one (not from ebay):

    Wonderful! A marginal pity about the radium burn on the dial at 2:00 but at least it shows that it isn't a redial!

    Love the nicks and dings on the case...lots of character. What was the year of production?

    Congratulations also from me. Beautiful original dial and an unusual case style with nice long lugs, moreover gold capped , even more unusual for a cal. 135. I believe this has a case number between the lugs, or is it simply not visible in the picture of the back? Whereas the movement is a couple of years older, I think this was cased c. 1960.

    Interesting article about how the Zenith caliber 135 blueprints ended up at the Tschistopolsky factory in Russia during the cold war which led to the 22 jewel version of the 135 with relocated seconds hand made by Vostok:

    The case number is 9530030.
    I agree with Hartmut Richter, is a pity the the dial has a mark but in the end it does not disturb me much. When looking at the time I will have to think about it to notice it.
    According to this post https://forums.watchuseek.com/f27/ze...ew-859709.html by sempervivens the watch should be 1959/1960 as already noted by sempervivens himself and Hartmut Richter.
