When a watch is fun to look at who cares about the time. :-d
I just assumed the basis was the Russian Molnija (referred to affectionately in some quarters as the Molida or "grinder") or the Lip equivilent.So that's a 649x - the plates on which he milled himself or something?
Not for sure of the date of manufacture. It does bear some superficial resemblance to the Corteberts and MSTs.To me, it looks like a Unitas cal. 83 (or, 84, 85, 86, 87 and 88) - it's a 16.5 lignes (36.6mm dia.) movement, suitable for a small pocketwatch. It is a movement from the late 1930s to the 1940s.
I really like the contrasts.The bridges are blued, and the screws golden… Nice!
Don't know if the watch even has a bezel or dial manufactured for it at this point. If I get a picture I'll be sure to update the thread.When a watch is fun to look at who cares about the time. :-d People catch me looking at my watch and then ask for the time. I always have to take a second look because I have no clue. I would like to see the front of the watch. I certainly like the movement.
