    Dear Chascomm,
    all the same Elektronika of the first generation is Elektronika 3049. Elektronika 5-202 appeared later.

    Dear mariomart,
    You are the lucky owner of the watch Elektronika 52 or 52B. If in your instance there is only single-tone signal, this is Elektronika 52. If the watch has melodies, then this is Elektronika 52B. Judging by the fragment of the manual on your photo, I'm inclined to think that this is more Elektronika 52B.

    By the way, perhaps you do not know that the figure 5 in the name Elektronika 5 means the code of the Minsk plant «Elektronika».
    Another example. «Pulsar» plant in Moscow had the code 1. Therefore, all the watches that were produced on it had the name Elektronika 1.

    It is old design, not produced now.

    Is the module Chinese? The description states "Elektronika 79".
    Module is chinese, with same functions as Electronika-79. This module was used in Kamerton-65M.

    I must confess I like that retro-tech style, right now I just ordered the "flagship", that one would be a good choice for the Chinese Eletronika 79/Kamerton 65 range, it would look even better with an integrated SS bracelet.

    Yes, I understand that the 3049/B6-02 is the first Soviet quartz and distinct from the later Elektronika models. What I meant by 1st generation was in the global sense of the big modules with two fat batteries etc (Pulsar, Optal, HP-01 etc) in contrast to the thin quartz digitals of the 1980s.

With more risks of destroying it, I want it as cheap as possible.
    It seems like any kind of new case is going to substantially increase the price. For that reason it would be better that any proposal for a hypothetical project using a new case be a design with the widest possible appeal to maximize reuse beyond the project i.e. to help this manufacturer open up new markets.

    Most of all I want the crystal to be changed from mineral glass to acrylic, so I can easily buff away any scratches.
    I'm curious about the feasibility of this. As I understand it, on most of these watches, the "dial" is printed on the back of the crystal, so a new printing technique might be needed.

    And is it possible to pay with Paypal?
    An excellent question. What are the international payment options?

    I paid through paypal, shipping was 300 roubles, so the total was 2850 for the 01.

    BTW here there is the manual, obviously in Russian. :(

    My limited understanding is that the chrono and countdown can reach 24h and the accuracy is 0.5 sec/day, even if it was advertised as 0.1 sec/day...perhaps I am wrong.

    My Elektronika 55 has been shipped. I also paid through Paypal. There is a little chance the watch might come a bit faster than most stuff from Russia as it is posted in Moscow, and not any town far away.

    Ordered these two yesterday.





    Never owned a digital watch before in my life. What type of strap / bracelet would these typically have been worn on back in the day?
