Molnija Frankenwatches, opinions?

1541 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Chascomm
I recently bought a couple Molnija "Frankenwatches". I'm a college student on a budget and wanted a decent mechanical watch. After spending more time on here than I should have (instead of studying), I ended up buying these two watches with Molnija 3602 movements. I realize that these are not fantastic watches, but I do enjoy the crazy faces, and its good to know that they have seemingly solid movements behind them.

Overall I am pretty happy with my purchases. They both keep time pretty well, the only complaint I have is that both of the faces are not centered, a caveat to buying these kinds of watches no doubt.

What do you all think? Have any stories, comments, advice on these kinds of watches?

Thanks for the response. I am looking into buying a cheap lot of watches and a cheap kit to just start tinkering around with the mechanics of watches before I get into modding any, but its something that I really want to to do when I get more time. Any suggestions on good places for buying equipment other than amazon/ebay?

Yeah, I took into consideration the lack of shock proofing when i bought, but as a student I am not too rough on them though.
However, I hope you enjoy them and didn't pay too much.

Welcome to the forum!
To be honest these were my first buys other than a Moscow Classic Baykal that I bought from a good friend of mine. So, I'm not sure if i paid too much... out of curiosity, whats do you think a fair price for each would be? :think:
