    Zenith Sporto movement 120 from 1960

    I found a great Zenith Sporto from around 1960 ? Are the hands the dial and the crown all in place and original the movement 120 should be a great movement with chronometer accuracy !

    Nice piece. Case diameter 35 mm?
    I think it's from 1957.

    I agree, ca. 1957, but I suspect it is a redial, which is why the dial looks so perfect.

    No it’s not a redial I bought this from a trustworthiness dealer the dial was never touched he told me I believe him sometimes you find something that’s hard to find / Zenith apologies about the wrong chronometer crown they will send the Z star crown! thanks 🙏

    The 'Z' in Zenith doesn't look straight. The 'hollow star' is unusual in this period. The whole 'Zenith Sporto' signature is not a style which I would expect from a 1957 Sporto. The dial looks (too) perfect, but the hands are aged and have lost all the lume.

    You should also check the caseback inside: is it signed Zenith Sporto there as well? I expect it is.
