    Hi Renoldi,

    Its an interesting looking watch.... Its always going to be a hard sell on the vintage forum for a Quartz... especially 80s!

    Whats the inner red bezel supposed to do??

    As for the movement... im dont mind a quartz or 2.... but I must say, that is an ugly looking movement!!

    I have no problems with it!

    I notice the early Soviet quartz encapsulate the IC under a semi-transparent PC board layer. I've not seen that done anywhere else. But this one seems not to have a trimmer capacitor.... I would suspect that makes it a later version.

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Tahks Marc and Eeeb !!!

    It's a simple quartz movement, nothing compare with the bulova, omega, tissot e etc. quartz movements!!

    The red bezel inside I have no idea wath it was doing there!

    I go with you Eeeb, i don't mind call a 80's watch vintage, for me, vintage is a thing that remember an era, a time, as the USSR remember the Cold War, so, whatever, it's vintage...


    Regards!!!
