Sekonda 17j.Textured/Linen Dial.

I have not been feeling to well lately. {kidney stones]. So imagine what a pleasant surprise it was, when my wife came home from our local shopping centre with this Sekonda in her hand bag.

She has never shown any interest in my watch collection, but like most Women she has got a photographic memory, when needed!!

My wife paid the grand total of £2 for this Sekonda, manufactured during the last gasps of the 1st Moscow Watch Factory. [Poljot].It was on a market stall selling Militaria.

The watch looks as though it has had very little use and is running, it also has a rather beautiful textured dial.

Really has cheered me up.

Vostok Precision Cyrillic.Textured Dial. Cal;2809. 22j.

Another simple understated Vostok precision received. Came in record time.
This is the later Vostok version, as opposed to the earlier Volna.
In lovely condition, keeping excellent time.

I know i keep stating this, but these watches are still very cheap, you really can still pick up bargains, with a little patience and research.

These watches were tested to chronometer grade status by the Russians. The cal;2809 movement, like many other Russian Calibres, are incredibly robust. They can be set up to be supreme time keepers, with their swan neck regulator.

Another great addition.
