I got this small Poljot, champagne dial, from a guy who claimed it was his grandmother's.
It is small, 32-33mm, however, it seems it was a men watch.
Any ideas about the movement and its age? I hope I did not get a franken.
Seems to me that it looks very similar with this one...
I need to sell bigger part of my watch collection. While it's hard for me to separate with these watches I collected over the years, my loved one desperately needs financial help to pay her medical bills so I really have no choice.
There are total 25 watches. All of them are running and in good...
Hello Russian watch lovers!
Today I would like to introduce an interesting project to you - a replica of Kirovskie K43 watch.
This was the first watch manufactured in-house at the First State Watch Factory in USSR and was intended for the Soviet Intelligence during the Eastern Front of WWII...

Yesterday I took the old watch of my grandfather - vintage Кировские. He was wearing it since I remember him, till few years ago. The watch is working, I still didn't measure how exactly it is keeping the time. I will try to restore it as it's one of my memories linked with my grandfather.
I bought a new "командирские", which states "chrome-plated case".
Till now I am using only solid-SS cases (Orient) and I am wondering how durable will be the new watch. Should I take special care of it and can I count to keep the good look for let's say 10-15 years? Any practical...
