    It looks like a 1990s Raketa/Peterhof with a printed card dial. Nothing special IMO.

    Some forum members including myself have seen card-dialled Raketas that often mimic original Raketa designs. For example a friend of mine has a Peterhof 'Glasnost' with a card dial in a similar (but not identical) style to the original version. I don't know where such watches come from, but it would not surprise me if they were made like that in Petrodvorets with spare parts following the first closure of the factory in the mid-1990s.

    Perhaps somebody else knows the exact significance of 'Saturn' on your watch?

    I don't think so. The watch was issued in early 90's.
    Maybe Saturn was Russia-USA joint ventures.
    I have Raketa Saturn with LADA on the dial.
