Old Kirovskie

Yesterday I took the old watch of my grandfather - vintage Кировские. He was wearing it since I remember him, till few years ago. The watch is working, I still didn't measure how exactly it is keeping the time. I will try to restore it as it's one of my memories linked with my grandfather.
Just to post the pictures here, I hope there will be "before" and "after" post soon :roll:

Nice Kirovskie, sci. Best of luck with the restoration, and be sure to post some pictures of the end result. It will be great to own a restored vintage watch which belonged to your grandfather - a real family heirloom.

Here's my Kirovskie - it only recently came into my collection:

I love those green ones - still looking for one. It was actually a green one I was after when my brown one turned up, but I took it anyway...
Two fine examples there, Vaurien.

Does the top one really have a black circle on the dial though? It's obviously the same watch as mine, but to me it looks more like a very dark brown colour....or perhaps they are different versions - yours black and mine dark brown :think: ....
The green one is my favorite, but all the crabs are nice. Do they come in other colors in addition to green and brown?

I think the stem on mine may be new but other than that is in good shape and original.
I call these watches hubcaps - because they remind me of the hubcaps on some of the cars from the 1950s :)
