I saw this on the Vintage forum. It's a 1970s Hong Kong watch with a Soviet movement. Nothing unusual about that, but the movement is quite clearly from 1st Moscow Watch Factory's 24mm automatic series (29 jewels) but both the dial and rotor are signed 30 jewels as one would expect for the later 26mm series (e.g. 2616)

Might just be the picture or the lack of a crown stem but the movement holder appears to be too small for the case. Perhaps a 29 jewel movement and holder was substituted for the original 2616 and counterweight. It would be interesting to know how the dial is attached.

On the second picture is visible the extra cap jewel with antishock on the escape wheel.
Maybe it's the 30-th jewel.

But it's very unusal, never seen before such movement.
