Happy Saturday to All!!!
As I was looking at some vintage watches on the internet I found this interesting looking Russian watch. I don’t know if it is in pristine condition or it is just a novelty, but it has certainly captured my attention with its unusual look. It is a Raketa Copernic watch. It is 38 mm without the crown, 42 mm from lug to lug and is 11 mm thick. The watch supposedly has:
Here are some photos of it. Is watch this worth having in a collection or is it just fun to look at its photos?
- Mechanical movement
- Manual winding
- Caliber: 2609.HA
- 19 Jewel
- Sweep second hand
- Shock protection
- Dust-proof black-colored case
Someone from the Russian WUS watch forum has p.m.'d me that he has one and he is in NJ . The other seller is from Russian and it would almost cost me twice as much to buy it from him.
If anyone has any input on the watch at all, I would be eternally gratefull!
Thanks in advance & have a great weekend!
