I've started collecting vintage timepieces this year. I have a huge appetite for watches, and vintage is a great way to go since they are mostly inexpensive. I've gotten so many information from this sub forum, and also drooled at some of your collections. I want to make an introduction to all you vetern collectors, so here is my collection, without further ado~

Unknown russian watch, anyone got a clue?

Most of my watches are overhauled by my watchmaker, I made a separate post about him in this thread, please have a look.

That's all for now, please let me know if you wish to have closer look of any of my watches, I also have many pictures of their movements;-)

The "unknown" Russian watch is a Raketa, in Cyrillic it looks like "Pakema". Made by the Petrodvorets Watch Factory which was founded in 1721 by Peter the Great, it's one of the oldest company making watches in continuous operation (except for the war years when the factory was blown to bits). It started as the imperial lapidary works and did a lot of stone carving, and more famously, gemstone cutting and polishing, and supplied to numerous crown jewellers and others houses including Faberge.

Judging by the look of it, it should be powered by a 2609.NA movement, which is a very sturdy and capable movement. I have several and they are very delightful.

Very nice set of watches. The Certina would probably be my pick.|>

Nice collection and put together so fast. My collection is a similar size and has been several years in the making. Looking forward to seeing your updates.
