I am a sucker for these "stolichnies", particularly ones with "necktie" hands and what appear to be original crystal and crown:
☆edit☆ Hopefully you can see this, I'm trying to upload pics from my phone for the first time - it's a solid gold Poljot from the 1970s, my first solid gold piece bought to wear at my daughter's wedding in February 2018...

Bought and recieved today this Raketa as I love these ''theme'' watches. (and as a kind of bonus, it's a ''zero'' Raketa)
Even if in this case a tragic war story, that of the submarine S-13, it's stil a specific piece of history locked in this soviet end (?) era watch.
It is in a very good condition, to my eyes seems original and it was a way lot cheaper then these NOS advertised examples:

NEW!!! RAKETA SUBMARINE S-13 SOVIET RUSSIAN WATCH | eBay
Isn't that quite overpriced in your opinion, by the way?

I've been watching this one on F2 for quite a while. Eventually comrade Mike dropped it to a price range I could afford, and kindly did a great deal for me, so now I have a solid gold piece in my collection at last. The details as described by Mike are:
Movement: Automatic 2616.H 30 jewel
Case material: Solid 14k pink gold (583)
Case width: 36.5mm
Lug width: 19mm
The dial - colour and cyrillic - is what really attracted me. Very happy with this one!

Well I didn't buy them today, but I should receive them tomorrow. So for now, a sneak-peek with the seller's photos:

NOS AVR-M aviation clock with original box and papers. Might need to service this one, I plan on using it.

Just ordered a very bare-bones vintage Vostok tonneau case for my first custom Amphibian build. No caseback, no crystal, no bezel but it's just what I need! Got some paddle hands and I'm going to transplant the movement from my blue Zissou. Might keep the dial, might not. Very excited.
