My first Raketa--quick question

567 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  raketawatches
I am painfully new to the world of Russian watches and noticed there were a number of helpful experts in these parts. So I thought I'd pose a quick question.

The Raketa I just purchased looks to be in great shape--came with box, holster, papers, etc. It appears to be a standard issue late 80s 2628, with the exception of the КГБ overlay where "Paketa" would normally be... So my question is if this is just some goofy sticker some one slapped on along the way? Maybe that's fairly common for these watches?

I like the watch either way and will probably just replace the КГБ strap and wear it regardless.

Thanks for any insight.

Michele has a Vostok with the same shield logo, claiming it was made for a German importer. I have seen it in a few other places too. ( I'm guessing they must have sold Raketas as well.
