Can you help? I have received a men's Zarya (Заря) watch from Bulgaria today which has the following wording on the watchcase back:
пьрвенец в сьревнованието за 1983 година.
It has been stamped in at the watch factory. It is not a subsequent engraving by a previous owner. I have enough Russian...
My grandparents lived from 1949-1960 in Russia and they came back with this watch.
It has written on it Zaria, 17 Jewels, Made in USSR
If anyone could tell me more I would really appreciate it.
I just received this watch (sorry, I have no camera, this is the seller's picture):
I really like the watch; however, the hour and minute hand alignment is way off. When the hour hand is on the hour the minute hand is at :20. Is there any way to fix this or do I have to send it back...
I saw this "Zarya" watch on Zenitar's site and took a chance on it - what the heck for $42.00. It's actually a decent little bugger, at 40 mm wide and very nice raised 'gold' numbers and the hands seem fairly well made also.
I haven't popped the back off yet but it looks like it...
