I purchased an old Raketa watch online (haven't received it yet). I asked the dealer is it water resistant enough to survive in the rain. He said that it is very likely that it would stop working if it was exposed to even a little rain. Although I have no reason to doubt the seller as he seems honest, is this typical of most old Raketas? I had heard these watch were made for the Soviet army and would have assumed that were atleast been a little more durable.
When I do a search of waterproof soviet watches on e-bay only Komaradskie watches pop-up.
Will post pics of watch once I receive it.
