In most of the pictures the snzh57 has "sports" and the minute marking in white, however in the picture with the colour choices, they are gold. Does the snzh57 we are getting look like the first photo's with whiteminute markings or is it like the one in the colour choices photo with gold writing? Thanks :))

*usually* you get the product as is pictured in the photos taken by Massdrop. The product photos of usually one of the variants on offer are (again, usually) taken by Massdrop. The "stock" photos of all the variants (usually lower quality) are sourced from the supplier (I would guess) and might denote an older model.
I've begun to trust the Massdrop photos rather than those stock photos, and in this case the Massdrop photos have the sports text in white, so that's what I would guess you'd get.
Massdrop, please correct me if I'm wrong, I don't know any of this for sure.

Just to add to what @payodpanda said. I've never seen a 57 with gold lettering and minute markers, but the full gold 60 does have a dial with the lettering and minute markers in gold tone. Taking a closer look at the pictures, it seems to me the stock photo was originally of a 60 that was photoshoped to replace the gold for chrome and probably thought the dials were the same or close enough. If you resize and overlay the photos they match perfectly.

Very observant catch there. Confirmation - the reflection of the bezel on the 57 (crescent moon from 6 to 12 on the edge) in the "stock" photos is gold. It should be silver / white for 57's silver bezel. :)
Compare with Massdrop's own photo: https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/product-images/MD-8783_20150620220705_2db1024143796fd1.jpg?auto=format&fit=crop&w=376&dpr=1

Holly hell. I actually photoshoped the pics to confirm my suspicion and did NOT notice the reflection. Good eye bud.

Would've missed it without you pointing it out in the first place. :D
