New to the forum, hi guys.

I'm getting back into watch collecting, I ran across some very inexpensive manual wind Russian watches. Knowing zero about them, I took a chance as they would look nice in the case if they didn't work. To my surprise, all of them work and keep accurate time.

I'll post them up as I get around to wearing them.

Here is the description from the seller, followed by some photos:

Welcome to WTF. With the exception of the Slava 2937 tuning fork model there is a limited posting of Russian watches. But don’t let that deter you from enjoying and posting your watches. One member, oliverb has several Russian made watches in his fine diverse collection and his comments should prove interesting and instructive.

I don't have a clue about these watches. I've heard they built some for export, but the Cold War made direct trade with the US a no-no. I had one of the first quartz watches ever made for export to the US after the wall fell and gave it to a friend. Wish I had made pictures, it was a canteen style watch with one of the most efficient ugly movements I ever laid eyes on.

This one was a gift from me to my bro in law, he handed it back to me recently looking worse than any watch I'd ever seen! I wish I'd taken before pics, but I got it back presentable and running well.
I have three more of these NOS in the boxes, bought them all in the 90's on a whim. I can't even remember where I got them.
Manual wind, screw down crown with rubber gaskets and o-rings. Bezel turns. About as generic a movement as I've seen :biggrin: cool markings, caseback is indexed to the case but the logo and text is stamped mis-aligned.

After the wall fell, societal changes were likely in the works.

Modern (90s) Russian Watch

I started posting these chronologically, so I'll continue. This one is more modern.

So far, my chief complaint with these watches is getting a band on one. This canvas strap got shredded on one end getting it on this watch! Almost no clearance between the pins and the watch body. I don't know if this one originally had a bracelet, or the owner used a scarf to wear it?:laugh:
