Hi and welcome to the forum!
It's mechanical manual-wind soviet watch 'Sekonda' (exported version of 'Poljot'). Caliber 2612.1, estimated production - ~1970s

Thanks for a friendly welcome to the forum. I really like this watch normally I collect Seiko watches (I say collect I have 4) and any Chinese watches that take my fancy. How this watch does not shake its self to pieces every time the alarm goes off is beyond me the amount it vibrates. very impressive engineering.:)

Welcome to the forum and that is a really nice sekonda. You'll be surprised how many other watches will follow you home in the next 6-8 months :-d.
I'm still blown away how addictive these lil' timepeices are.

Hello all once again thank you for the welcome :). I have been doing some research on the interweb regarding the 2612.1 and it looks to be a good reliable movement. However my watch has a micro weighted regulator I cannot find another example of this on the web. Has my watch been repaired at some point or is it a quirk in production or is this normal. See photo. Once again thanks to everyone and I hope I will be expanding my collection soon.
