    Raketa USSR-USA watch

    I was reading this article in the moscow times and they mentioned a Raketa watch from the 80's with a USSR-USA text on them.

    I was trying to find more information or pictures about this watch but couldn't find anything. Does anyone know?

    I'm also interested in any other watches featuring a dual Russia-USA or USSR-USA theme.

    I received this watch for free after purchasing numerous chronographs from a seller in the U.K..

    I noticed that the dial was off center, and that the hands were not set properly, so I took it apart:

    ...no wonder I got it for free!

    There’s a very rare KFOR presentation/commemorative watch on this thread you might be interested in – I now own the equally rare Ryazan Higher Airborne Academy presentation/commemorative watch in the thread, for which I remain indebted to Comrade Schnurrp for giving me custodianship of that rare and very special piece: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/two...es-970242.html
