Rare Soviet era mechanical (wind up) watch. Nice!
- Date Listed05/04/2019
Lovely vintage watch from 1980's era Soviet watch factory Raketa. This one is an uncommon/rare brand Corsar. This factory was known for producing some of the better watches available and usually better movements/ manufacturing than some of the other brands (like Zim, Slava etc).
This has the legendary 2609HA movement (the last incarnation), and 17 jewels. It's also shockproof.
In excellent condition for its age - keeps good time and looks much newer than it is.
Very easy to read quickly with a lovely ivory white face and gold hands. 34mm wide . Not too big and chunky, so suitable for most adults. It has a new leather strap too.
Having a clear out due to imminent house move.
Can post if you are not able to collect.
