Good day to one and all,
I am new to the forums and to the world of watch collecting and appreciation in general. Currently I own just an Aviator MIK-29, a gift from my wife. I actually posted this in the public form when I wasn't aware of this subforum, and reposted it here on the advice of Mike Stuffler.
I am just curious as to why Russian watches aren't mentioned on the forums more often - a brief skimming through the pages and I did not notice any threads dedicated to them, and they are hardly quoted on any of the classics or desired watches threads.
Personally I think Aviator, Dennisov and Poljot watches are very appealing to the novice's eye, especially if the inconvenience of winding them is not a problem.
What is your opinion on Russian watches in general, and for lovers of them like myself, what are your favourite brands and makes?
