    Mmm, that is interesting. My knee-jerk response was the same as amil's, that the bezel and case-back are franken. But the style of the bezel matches the earlier black bezels perfectly (only this one is colored), which does seem to suggest it's a transition piece. Very cool.

    Стелу у парка установили в 2015 году, хронометр у Парка культуры и отдыха традиционно напоминает тамбовчанам о знаковых датах и праздниках. Горожане видят на хронометре, сколько времени остаётся до важных событий – Нового года, 9 мая, Покровской ярмарки. Также на хронометре можно увидеть температуру воздуха и текущее время.

    The stela was installed in the park in 2015, the chronometer near the Park of Culture and Rest is traditionally reminds to the Tambov residents about the symbolic dates and holidays. Citizens can see at the chronometer, how much time remains before important events - New Year, May 9, Pokrovskaya Fair. Also on the chronometer you can see the air temperature and the current time.
    I'm aware of that, But do a search and see. Here's a wristwatch example: Патриарх, митрополит или президент — чьи часы дороже? - Информационное агентство «Телеграф»

    That is the eternal challenge on this forum: how to assess the legitimacy of something that we've never seen before, based on the things that we have seen.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that somewhere in the Chistopol factory there is a dark, dusty, cramped little room, with a flickering fluorescent tube, which is jam packed with filing cabinets absolutely brimming with reams and reams of paper containing every little snippet of information and answers which us here folk in f10 spend countless hours deliberating over using scraps of information gleaned from mistranslated ponderings of others. I wonder.

    I can not agree, all watch that called chronometers there are actually chronometers (certified, claimed, etc - Rolex, Blancpain, Richard Mille), other watches called just watch (even it's Patek Phillipe). Once chronometer is used in mistake - it is chronograph Blancpain leman flyback chrono.

    That is the point I've made, they use chronograph and chronometer interchangeably (and incorrectly).
