    Maybe a cal. 133.8 from late '50s - early '60s.

    It's a little difficult to say without a serial number (case or movement) - or even knowledge of the movement! It looks like a 1950s watch with Cal. 133.8 but might even be an early sixties watch with Cal. 2522 P. Do you have it and is there something thudding around inside when you shake it? If so, it's the 133.8, otherwise it would be a 2522 (or even a 2532 P).

    Yes, definitely a Cal. 133.8 then. Sempervivens will probably give you a year based on the case serial number (although the movement serial number will probably be a little more accurate).

    I would say 1960. (Mine has a higher case Nr and confirmed date of 1961). Great watch, wear it in good health!

    @Kulee-Baba: the pictures are not so clear, is it goldplated?

    So you found the case number between the lugs?

    I would also date it ca. 1960/1961.

    It could be a cal. 2522 P. But since it is thudding, it must be cal. 133.8.

    @ Acme, yours has a cal. 133.8? Could you share the numbers/information concerning the production date (confirmed by Zenith archives?)
