Is this Raketa ok?

I recently saw this watch, it is nice but I have some doubts about its legitimacy.

My doubts arise from three considerations:

1) The first consideration is the weakest: the machine is a SU 2609.HA ( ok, ok, this may be due to the transition period, etc. etc.)
2) The second question is more important.You see that logo on the dial similar to the one of the Soviet Union? is legitimate? I do not believe so.
3) and what about the PAKETA written on the dial identical to that one on the box ? I always saw the red box with "PAKETA" written in that way (with a line joining the A and K as also the three letters ETA), but I've never seen the watches with the same written on the dial ( i mean with the same graphics, style, fashion)

What do you think?

A lot have been attributed to the presence of the "rosette" logo; some eBay sellers claim that its presence indicates a superior product but this is not really the case.

An explanation of the rosette logo is here; even though the site is for Soviet-made calculators, the principle is still the same.
