    Question about Vintage Soviet watch on Etsy

    Hello everyone,

    I am new to the watch game and would like to purchase my first vintage watch. I found a watch that appeals to me on Etsy. Does anyone know if this is legit? Has anyone dealt with this seller before? Not sure exactly what to look for when buying a vintage so any help would be appreciated!

    Thank you,
    The watch itself looks legit, it's a Raketa from probably 70s or 80s.

    Thank you! Seems like there are a lot of vintage Russian watches from the 70s and 80s so its hard to tell what is real and fake. Does anyone have any sellers on Etsy they recommend for vintage products?

    You should examine particular pieces, not sellers, countries, genders or other things that are not related to the actual watches :)

    All the experts on Soviet watches are here: Russian watches You will get more help there.

    $83 seems a bit high for this watch.

    Thank you,
    It is standard Raketa from 70ies. Chromed case, around 34mm. Movement should be Poljot 2609. If you can get it for 30-40$ it is ok.

    This watch is popular among Russian collectors called Raketa Jeans. The main thing in these watches is cosmetic condition, and this particular watch it is not perfect. I am sure that you will be able to find such a watch in good condition with time. The price is too high.

    No. You will not find a Poljot movement in a genuine Raketa of any vintage.
