    FS Russian Naval Raketa Submarine watch "20 year Magnitogorsk Kosmolets"

    Today I have my Raketa 20 year commemorative Magnitogorsk Kosmolets submarine watch, of the Red Banner Northern Fleet.
    This isn't a cheap watch. The movement has 2 anti-shock settings:the top and bottom of the balance AND of the escape wheel. This is the higher end, better made of Russian watch movements..

    This is a rare 12 hour Raketa with 4-hour-shift-bezel, rotated by the 4 o'clock crown. It's probably from the 80's because the original (rusty) movement was marked "SU" (Soviet Union)
    The rotating bezel works great after cleaning.

    40mm across
    42mm lug-to-lug
    12mm thick
    18mm lug width.

    This is sporting a really nice leather Spidel strap.
    The case has a few plating issues as shown in the pics.
    I polished up the original crystal, but it still has a few scrapes around the edges.

    I got it with a rusted 2609.HA, then got a donor movement and made a seriously accurate watch out of it.
    After a complete service and rebuild I have been timing it on my desk for the last 3 days.
    It's given me an average of +2.4 sec per day. (high of +8.6 and a low of -5.3)

    DAMN! That is running really well. these are High Accuracy movements!


    The thread of what I did is here: (The link has a little more to find out what is on the dial and what it all means.)

    Overall this is a great little watch with a unique, probably very limited dial and movement configuration.
    Oh yeah and it runs near COSC parameters!

    How does $80 sound??
