    new collector needs advice on Russian watches

    Hi,

    I am thinking about buying a vintage russian watch as a gift for someone who is about to graduate with a Russian degree. I am new to collecting, period, and no jack $#!+ about Russian watches. Well, I know from reading the vintage forum that eBay sales out of the Ukraine are untrustworthy.

    I need advice on buying a modestly-priced, well-running vintage Russian watch. It needs to have a good look with a suit and for casual wear.

    Yeah, I probably should post in the Russian forum. Yeah, I will probably buy from WUS sales or a known US seller that WUS recommends. But I'm starting here because you guys are awesome.

    Thanks,
    tinyfrogs

    As a long time regular here on Vintage and Pocketwatches I would suggest you go straight to the WUS Russian watches forum. Especially if you are looking to get a wristwatch. Our colleagues over there have much more detail knowledge for vintage Russian watches.

    Let us know what you decide for.

    I agree with Eric, the Russian watch forum is the place.
    I haven't seen a lot of vintage Russian discussed in here, and what I know about
    Russian brands I could write on the back of a postage stamp...with a two inch paint brush.

    I'm sure that there is one or two in here that know vintage Russian inside out though and
    could make good recommendations.

    Ah, I see you did that already whilst I was making this post

    ... and a great Raketa too! Not that I am anywhere close to "knowing a lot" though; still a novice really.
