Today I stumbled upon this Slava. I have no other information than the women who sold it, brought it to the Netherlands when she moved from the Ukraine. It was from her late husband.

I found that it must have the Slava 2428 movement. But I can't find this case and dial combination online. Is it a "Frankenwatch"?

Day & date setting works fine and clicks into place at 00:00 hour. Runs fine, nice ticking sound. I found out that it is hard to wind with this small crown though.

Day & date changed at midnight, she is running great! Since the dial says automatic, could it be an automatic? Slava 2427 movement? It would explain the small crown!
I can't hear a rotor sound like in an nh35.

Well open the case back if you aren't sure...

Here are my two Slava automatics; the rotor on both is a bit hard to hear, but they both work. The one on the left sounds a bit clunky though, need to open it up and see what's the problem.

The case is on a couple of watches in the 1993 Catalog, second row from bottom on the right below, so early 90's is the timeframe.
