Very nice. I like the rubber strap. I think I may get one of those for this watch. I wonder if I should get new rubber seals from Zenitar or just use some silicone grease on the old seals?
Encouraged by your excitement, I took the bracelet and put it on my Komandirskie. Well, unless you have the wrists of a naked mole-rat, you will greatly dislike it. It was a hair-puller bracelet. And it hurts. Hey, you want it? You can have it. If I ever need any parts, this looks good for a trade.phillyj,
First of all I am salivating over that bracelet! It's Raketa and as sweet as can be.
I saw the escape wheel spinning fast but the balance wheel was not moving. So the movement is shot? No fixing? If the pivots are broken, then its not replaceable like a gear is, right?form the symptoms I think that it is the escape wheel that is broken. If the watch received enough shock for the escape wheel pivot(s) to break then the balance wheel pivots are very likely broken too. Could be that someone tried to tinker with the movement and broke the escape wheel though. movement is a vostok 2409(a?).
I just looked at the movement picture again and it is also missing the seconds hand pinion spring
