Slava 60 second Split Second Stopwatch


Slava 60 second Split Second Stopwatch.

Another in the bargain basement category Of Russian watches.
This is the slightly Rarer 60 second version and in perfect condition.

Still use these to time internet auctions,slightly more interesting than using one of those ghastly automatic computer sniping tools.

14k Rose Gold Luch Ultra Thin. Cal;2209



14k Rose Gold Luch Ultra Thin Cal;2209.

I bought this of a lovely seller from France. It was cheap, the seller accepted my sensible offer, outside of  ebay. Once again the ridiculous buy it now prices currently on ebay for Russian Rose gold watches, really are in cloud cuckoo land. If they go to auction, they reach a fraction of the buy it now price.[Thats why they sit on ebay for years!] So if you want to buy one wait for an auction.

Having said that, this modal is one of the less successful Luch design,s in my opinion .
I just don`t think the colour of the dial goes with the lovely Rose Gold Case.

Still glad to have it though...

14 k Rose Gold Vostok 17j Dress watch.


Vostok 14k Rose Gold 17j Dress watch.

Have always loved the Russian Rose gold watches, such a lovely colour on the wrist.
The trouble is, most on the internet, are ludicrously over priced, on buy it now purchase.

When they are left to go to auction, they fetch a fraction of the buy it now prices.

This watch is in lovely condition and would have been made in the early 70`s.

One typically Russian "design feature"is the lume. the dial has lume on the outside of the dial indices, but none on the hands.....Making the watch impossible to read in the dark.Quirky to say the least.

The movement is the ubiquitous Cal;2409A 17j

Very pleased to have one back in the collection again.
