Not only my first "expensive" watch, also my first mechanical chronograph.

3133 with closed date field.



I still yet have to source a decent mechanical chrono, I am torn between whether Phylida on Aliexpress brings back their Venus 175 powered "tin tin" homage or to save up for a Sekonda branded one.
This came in a lot of broken watches, I managed to do a full service and bring it back to life. Strangely, it's a brass case Komandirskie with a 2416b automatic. Does anyone know when it was made? I suppose the '90s?
Now that is an ornate and lovely tank commander variation, what a cracking find and auto as well :D

I went online to look for a Raketa watch in the style of their "Baltika" and found a nice 1958 Vostok Volna in the process (listed amongst the Raketa's!).
I ended up buying both!
Can the Ukrainian sellers please stop listing such nice watches at good prices please. ;)
