    The nicest one you've shown us yet, in my opinion, Alexander! Thank you! I wonder why more were not made?

    I have been looking hard for a men's dress watch with the 2209 movement and I've only seen one on ebay in the time I've been looking. A fair amount of pocket watches and small square wristwatches, though.

    Thanks for sharing!

    A lovely dial. One of my favorites. I have one in my collection, too. Number 0885.
    Congratulations.

    Yes, it is very elegant! Sadly, my collection does not have one.

    I second [schnurrp]'s comment: I see very few Raketa 2209's on the Bay, apart from pocket watches and square wristwatches. This is strange, because neither of these case types benefits from the smaller, slimmer 2209 movement, and they could equally well be built with the 2609.
