    Welcome to the Watchuseek Zenith forum! That is a nice watch, although in slightly worn condition. It dates to around 1945-46 (from the movement serial number), possibly a little later if they used an older movement (which is why it's worth getting a second estimate from the case serial number) and has what looks lile a Cal. 106-6 (Cal. 106 with Incabloc shock proofing):

    Can't read the movement number very well. If it is a ladies watch (diameter?) it should have a cal 88.6.

    Thank You Hartmut for your reply could it be one of the first Zenith Sporto's series they have made back then ?
    I will bring the Zenith to a Classic Watch Company in Zürich so they can clean and oil the movement
    its running quit good at the moment though.

    I have a few Zenith Sporto's from the 50's and they are great !

    Best

    sempervivens is right - if the watch is that small (24mm), the movemnet will be smaller than a 106-6. The bridge shape is also consistent with the 88-6:

    Yes, it it one of the very first Zenith Sporto's, I would also estimate 1945/46 as production date. Congratulations on this addition to your Zenith Sporto collection!
