    Congratulations! That watch is an almost exact match of the one in Rössler (p. 49) with a similar serial number. That one was made in 1910 (19. October, according to the Zenith lists). The extra rubies are supposedly spares in case a watchmaker should need them.

    Hi.

    I would say it's a caliber 18 1/2 or 19 or 20 N.V.S.III from around 1912.

    How much is the diameter of the movement?

    Very nice looking watch. Perhaps at a later time, you can show a close up of the movement? Looks to be in great condition.
    Thanks!

    Thanks for helping me here


    A helpful guy in the russian forum made this translation:
    On the inner dust cover: On the upper line : High Quality , medals, G. F. JAcot, Locle, 23 jewels, Precision, Ancre Lever Visible. On the inside of the outer cover: To Tavarish (comrade) Chiskidov from the Ministry of Defense (in the text it was written literally :People's Commissariat for the Defense), USSR, 1938

    I wonder what bourgeois that got "nationalized" from, to be made into a gift for Tovarich Chiskidov.
