    The "class 1" designation is probably most famous from the Strela chronograph, but it did appear on other watches as well. Here's one spotted on etsy:



    Anyone know what the significance of the "class 1" symbol was? Did it appear on other watches as well, beyond these two?

    Great question. Here is mine, but it's the only other "First Class" watch in my collection...

    Recently came up for sale: a two-fer 3031 combo:



    There have been about 5 examples of these 3031 for sale over the last year or so. An encouraging sign for those who might consider this watch an unobtainable grail.

    Are they both NOS!? Do you have a link to the sale? I'm very interested in this (astronomical) price.

    Was going some late night Soviet admiring and stumbled across this thread posted many years ago which detailed some exquisite museum pieces from two titans of the Imperial Russian watch industry which I do not believe have been posted (or seen) since:

    Zaria 2006, with documents, with box, in perfect condition. Wow. These are perhaps even rarer than a Raketa 3031 (and arguably a more interesting indigenous Soviet movement).
