Happy to say that after a couple weeks of waiting my first Russian Watch has arrived! Decided to go with something fun but simple to start (although I can see a Vostok Scuba-dude in my future). I ended up with this cool Raketa with Cyrillic text. It's also my first square watch, and I'm really digging the dial. Looks great with a suit.

The movement is a bit odd, as you have to pop the crown to change the date. But it's keeping great time and is in good shape! Not bad for $20 and shipping!

Thanks to Svtrrts on ebay, highly recommend him.

Nice Raketa. Congratulations. Popping the crown to shift the date is the norm for Raketas with date functions. It sure beats winding the hands around and around to set it! Be gentle with it though!
