I have a weak spot for the Raketa World Time, so when an opportunity opened to get a NOS example... It is an Italian export and a little bit different from the used domestic version I had since before. I have noticed a peculiar thing regarding the cities and time zones printed on the bezel. After this discovery, I have compared to other pictures of this model and they all share the same strange feature.
It came with box and papers. The manual is in Italian.
The plating is not gold, it's titanium nitride.
Now take a close look at the bezel. I have rotated it so that Moscow is at the top. Each tick and each city represent one time zone, equals one hour. To the immediate left of Moscow is Geneva, Switzerland in central Europe. This happens to be also my timezone in Stockholm, Sweden. And the next zone to the left is London, Great Britain. The problem is however, that this is incorrect! Between Geneva and Moscow is two time zones, not one. Was this different in the 1980's or did Raketa make all their watches with this error? What is going on here?
Here side by side with my used Raketa World Time. The "error" is here as well.
