2) Serkisof looks like a Molnyja. The right translitteration should be Serkisov or in German way Serkisoff.

Nice watches, two classic Russians :-! There is a quite interesting thing about the pocket watch. The Molnija "Serkisof"-branded versions are very common, but nobody noted that on all those watches there is the "DEMIRYOLU" inscription, that means "train" or "railroad" in Turkish.

The Serkisof "Demiryolu" pocket watches (as said, just normal Molnija "train" pocket watches) are currently sold in massive quantity on Turkish websites, complete with nice metal boxes.
Maybe the Molnija watches were really used by the Turkish railways in the past? :think: I don't know reasons to find a Turkish inscription on a Russian watch, especially if this inscription is very diffused.

My Serkisof is without any texts on back side. Only the picture is there. I have bought that one about 1992-1995 in Helsinki "red square".
