    All 80 watches are documented. Just 1 picture of each because the thought of taking the backs off for movements shots and setting up other angles would have put me off for another 2 years.

    So for your watch perusing delectation, I present my Soviet Watchbox.
    The gallery resizing or lack thereof means it looks ok on screens above 1600x900 but below that and it's awful. Pretty unusable on a tablet too.

    Banner is in my signature, should you want to link from your own sites. I'll gladly reciprocate any link adds if you send me a PM with a banner and address.
    Excellent work! Welcome to the club of Russian Watch websites. I particularly like the background image you have. However, I am not sure about the Ruhla Chronogaph being described as "Misfit"

    You have done the hard work of setting it up. I don't think it is well recognised how difficult it is to get good photographs especially of dark dial watches. It should now be easier to add the odd watch here and there as they come along.

    I will send you a pm so that our sites can be linked.

    Thanks, I've pm'ed you the address to send the images too.

    Think of "misfits" as a special club
    As it happens I got what I think is the correct movement ID for the Ruhla from your site. If it's incorrect or if you know the model number as well let me know and i'll update the 'hover over' information.

    Great site! Keep up the good work. I know it takes a long time to make a good looking website.

    Thank you. If you have a banner image to share I'd like to add a link to your site. You have some very rare pieces.

    Maybe I'm showing my newness, but it was interesting to see a Vostok with a 3133 chrono in it. I had no idea they were a thing. Seen lots of them in Poljots and the like but never a Vostok.
