    It was, not to the 200m specification of the Amphibians - more like 30m. However, I would be careful now. Replace the seals and have it checked if you are thinking of using it in a wet environment.

    Unusual dial, very cool! You don't see many of these non-Komandirskie Vostoks.

    Oh absolutely, just look at those hands! Apparently it's also the same small size.

    One huge drawback, and that's it's quartz movement.

    It will make a fun toy for a little while at least.

    Re: What did you buy today?

    This beauty came in today. Made possible by Dashiell. A million thanks! :)

    Unfortunately it's not running well and needs a service badly. The hour hand sometimes moves without the minute hand when setting the time. I can't find anyone who will service it for an acceptable price and I don't have the expertise to do it myself. I'm considering buying another signal watch, maybe a cheap one from the 80s, with a working movement and doing a movement swap. What do you think guys?

    Btw what does the inscription on the case back say. I was told but forgot what the translation was.

    Nice one!

    Personally, I wouldn't swap the movement out unless it's with a period-correct replacement from the early-1960s. There are many subtle and not-so-subtle differences, and a watch like this would lose considerable value with a replacement movement. I should have told you to have Roman service it before sending to you. It would have been no more than $10 there......ugh :(

    If you don't mind shipping the watch back out again, I can refer to you a number of people who could service for a very reasonable price. But you'll have to pay shipping both ways, and be without your beloved Signal for a few weeks :/

    I can't read Cyrillic, but I believe this watch belonged to some hot-shot party official. I think it was a gift from the Minister of the USSR....or something? I'm probably remembering incorrectly. But I recall it being a pretty important watch.

    I don't think I've seen one with a inscription on the double back before and beautifully done, at that.

    Sounds like a problem with the cannon pinion. If that's all it is that's not a hard fix, on par with swapping a movement, perhaps. Any such movement should have a replacement part that would work.

    Nice pickup, will be waiting to see what the inscription is.
