    This makes me even more curious to know the story behind this watch. Is it an authentic late 1950s product (it looks like it is derived from a Shturmanskie/Sportivnie) or is it a modern creation based on vintage parts?

    Grokiy was always on the Moscow time. Stalinsk is a small town known now as Novokuznetsk in Kemerovo district....It is a fantasy watch made to sell to ignorant folks.

    So if I understand this thread correctly, this world-time-Sportivnie thing is in the collection of a respected Russian collector of pristine Soviet watches, and yet it has several technical errors which reveal it to be a custom-built fantasy piece based on parts of a 1950s watch? ...

    Perhaps some dial from the same famous workshop in Bulgaria, which issued those white Bocmok, Pakema, and Kocmohabt which writing included tiny rockets or the like?

    Another soviet watch mystery. Nonetheless, it is a looker.

    Not real exotic, strange, or mysterious but certainly pretty rare in this condition (rare price too!): Soviet POLJOT Orbita Automatic Watch Shock Resist 29 Jewels | eBay

    would you enlighten me on this 'famous shop', never heard about it before and am kind of curious.
