Interesting article about an exhibition on soviet watches in East Germany
from the magazine 'Uhren + Schmuck' 8/71.

At the end of the article it states:

...in the exhibition they show some 600 different models of watches. But the total production of models in the Soviet Union is about 10 to 20 times that amount......

So, there is a lot left to be collected!

It's interesting that as late as 1971, Poljot were still running out models with the 2416, 5 years after the switch to the 26mm thin calibres. That gives some idea of Soviet over-production practices that would be unsupportable in a market economy.
