Watch Analog watch Watch accessory Fashion accessory Metal

Movement found in an Ural currently for sale. Never seen a thing like that, and so far I thought I'd knew everything post-war Soviet. Could someone help me out, please? Back is stamped 15 kamnei, ChChZ, but it looks a little amateurishly engraved instead of stamped.

its a variant of the molnija pocket watch movement. the molnija pocket watches usually have the 3602, the Ural is the same base movement but modified for center seconds hand (3608). I believe there are also some Urals made with only the hour and minute hands (3600) . I think most Urals have aluminum cases so the plating wears off easily and the case can get dinged up easier than chrome plated brass cases.

Thanks a lot for the valuable information! Yes, the case is aluminum (see @ 261130383350), like in many "Start" watches.
I didn't know there were Molnijas with a central second hand. Now that I know I realize there's a similarity.
