they are classics after all and you won’t get them again – hopefully!
Watches & comment
it looks pretty awesome to me!
In the ’50’s to late 70’s period the USSR produced watches of real high quality.
an English watch built with an English movement too – and in reality a darned good one at that
In India they are the largest watch manufacturer with over 7 million units sold every year!
They are far better value more often than not and to me represent a “style” and elegance that seems to have been lost today. I say value as this watch cost barely a third of the new version – and – it’s more elegant – far easier to read and is virtually as new condition.
It operates on the wrist movement of the wearer and spins a power-generator at high speed to produce a current
Unusual too in this style of watch is the large double window date @12 making for very clear readability.
Japanese Miyota cal OS8O chronograph movement and features 1/20sec timing – an alarm – and an analogue date window @3. Really quite comprehensive for a watch of this price.
