    Hi tzagu,

    I guess another traditional Swiss brand was sold to Far East. The movement was punched in China:

    But don't worry, these are a little bit better than their reputation.

    Nice watch with a belt-hook chain! What do the covers look like when the watch is closed?

    The cover is a clean, no designs, images or engravings on it, just brushed. The same for the back cover. Model is H-708.
    I posted a picture from a site, it's a smaller, maybe I'll post one with my watch for more details.

    I guessed this was not a swiss, japan or russian movt. when I received it, (as I own wristwatches and pocket watches with these kind of movements mentioned) and it didn't seem to be the same quality or toughness. But still it's nice looking, clean design and nice size, keeping quite good time. The ticking is not that lowed compared to my Molnija :P.
    Hope it will resist all the wear and tear of daily usage.
    I little disappointed regarding the watch crystal which is actually plastic :)).
