    I love the patina, and the tired old folded-link bracelet. Thing has got character.
    Cities listed on the bezel:
    Рейкьявик/Rejkjavik, Iceland
    Дакар/Dakar, Senegal
    Лондон/London, UK
    Женева/Geneva, Switzerland
    Москва/Moscow, Russia
    Горький/Gorky, Russia(Soviet-era name of Nizhny Novgorod, from 1932-1990)
    Свердло́вск/Sverdlovsk, Russia (Soviet-era name of Yekaterinburg from 1924-1991)
    Ташкент/Tashkent, Uzbekistan
    Новосиби́рск/Novosibirsk, Russia
    Иркутск/Irkutsk, Russia
    Якутск/Yakutsk, Russia
    Владивосто́к/Vladivostok, Russia
    Магадан/Magadan, Russia
    П-Камча́тский/Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, Russia
    Ана́дырь/Anadyr, Russia
    Гонолулу/Honolulu, Hawaii
    Нью-Йорк/New York
    Буэнос айрес/Buenos Aires, Argentina
    Рио де Жанейро/Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    Should have a 2628.H 19 jewel, 18,000bph movement (haven't opened the case back, but no reason to question it.) Allegedly recently serviced and has been keeping good time for the few hours I've had it.
