I quite like the design of these watches and have done some research, but if there are experts out there, I'd appreciate some knowledge.
After what I have looked at it seems that trying to buy an authentic is not that likely, realistically it will be a mix of parts, some original, some not so much.
However it seems that there are 2 types that are easy to get your hands on, one with a 2609 movement 17 jewel, which I believe is a 12 hour reformatted to a 24 hour with the only other type of movement I can find is 2614, 19 jewel. I know 2623 is the most original for a 24 hour watch, but I can't find that and the polar version.
I am currently looking at purchasing Russian mechanical watch 24 Hours movement Raketa "Polar"
(has CCCP on the dial and is 2614 movement)
Any further advice? I believe the 2614 is "more" authentic.
