    Unfortunately I had no camera with me :oops:
    But they deserve a visit.
    I don't know if that Slava transistor is working; maybe anybody could ask Slava people?
    I used to visit the shop but I didn´t pay attention. Next week I´ll try to get some pictures.

    Thank you, José!
    Ancient watches are in a shop window. You can see it from outside the shop, staying in the lobby.

    Wonderful! A great treasure, I think, in perfect state.
    How is the back? Does it resemble a Bulova Accutron 214?

    Thanks all! It's one of my favorite soviet watches and I'm really happy to have it in my collection. The watch is like-new and runs perfectly, accuracy is +8s/24H. What amazes me the most is how smooth the seconds hand is moving!

    Yes construction of the back-case is the same: battery hatch and "winding crown". Please see the photos attached.

    Well I walked last monday into the Slava shop but I didn´t find the Slava transistor you are talking about. Instead of Slava there is a Kamerton Fork type. Next week I will come back with my camera.

    By the way ,I bought a LCD Kamerton for 578 rubles made in Pinsk , Belorussia-

    Someone asked if the Salva electric in the Slava shop in Moscow were in good order. Well this morning I came back to Slava shop and I must say that there is 2 Slava electric, skeleton, and in table clock format, and one wristwatch Kamerton also with the same mechanism. I asked the men attending if the watches are in good order of working. He told me they are faulty so not working. It´s a pity.

    Regards
    José
