Occasionally I'm tempted by ebay sellers who have a bundle of watches to sell and can't be bothered to describe them properly. Sometimes successfully - sometimes not. And sometimes the one I 'fancied' is disappointing, whereas one of the others proves to be a nice surprise.
Anyway, this East German Ruhla came in a batch of 7 without straps - some of which are completely rubbish - and is in very clean condition, working well and keeping time. I've replaced the paint spotted crystal (with some difficulty actually) and given it a reasonable strap which is probably worth more than the watch.
The movement is the pin pallet UMF 24-32.
Anyone else got one?
