    Yes. With (imagine) a railroad narrow track joining the ticks.

    You would know better than me, but all the translations on Google and Yandex return "автоматический" for automatic.
    I understand the ticks, but design without a purpose is no design but empty decoration to me

    Google-bot (or Yandex–who scavenges whom beats me...) is the bother. One watch in Russian is a plural — часы. And adjectives in Russian take on the gender and/or plural of the noun. So, АвтоматическиЕ would be correct as an adjective, if uncommon: see Автоподзавод (auto-auxiliary-winding), noun not adjective, on most Vostok.

    Thanks: so, not that uncommon, but imho strange indeed. Automatic implying “mechanism” instead of watch, I suppose.

    While at it, I notice the rocket looks like a decal applied on the dial, as is the cosmonaut’s head in the watch above. Same period of manufacturing might explain both features — I mean wording and image.

    An absolute at the listed price of 4000 dollars thats only a grand a number (ignore the 150 ruble price tag literally still attached to the watch). Shipping is only 90 dollars to canada apparently from where the item is currently located in Pennsylvania.

    So, mining is really back in Pennsylvania! Though, this one miner probably fancies he’s in Yukon...

    That's been listed repeatedly on ebay for insane prices for at least the last 3 years.

    I think I've mostly seen this one in a golden star-shapped Generalskie case.
