I am looking for a vintage Russian watch but am not really sure where to focus. I want something probably a bit on the large side for vintage, 36mm or larger. I would prefer a minimal dial without embellishments if possible. I guess I like Bauhaus design and think that the Junghans Max Bill watches are beautiful. I have a Kirovskie from the late 50s which I like a lot but it's just a little bit small. If you could give me a couple of ideas as to which brands and models to look for I would appreciate it, if only to save me hours trawling eBay.

I think the only soviet watch from the 50/60's that's at least 36mm is the Start.

If you don't like it or want something bigger, you'll have to visit the 70/80's, but the design wasn't really sober at that time...

If you’re OK with a cushion case the one Raketa used for the Big Zero is on the larger side at 39mm. The Big Zero is probably too bold for what you’re looking for, but there are models with more understated dials out there. For example:

The 511512 is a contender, thanks.
