    The CONUS land is amazing. In no other country in the world I saw so many people who are afraid of sending post to a foreign land.

    That's why I have a good friend in States, who is just forwarding watches to me.

    Raketa 24 limited editions is one of my special interests. I have many of them in my collection. As a primer here one watch bought today from Germany.

    I've never before saw this one. The watch is made in 1991, 60th anniversary of Arktikugol.
    Wikipedia: Arktikugol (Russian: Арктикуголь, literally "Arctic Coal") is a Russian coal mining unitary enterprise which operates on the islands of Spitsbergen in Svalbard, Norway.

    They have even a website in Russian: www.arkticugol.ru

    Today is a good day. One Raketa more from Germany (another seller).

    In August 1992 Russian clipper Klavdiya Yelanskaya (named after famous actress of 30s and 40s) had arctic cruise. Most probably from Murmansk through Arctic Ocean to Pacific, which is the true Russian Arctic Passage. I don't know yet the details, but in the web I can see several envelopes posted from this arctic cruise.

    Guinand Einzeigeruhr Classic 31.HS-50
    Einzeigeruhr = one hand watch.

    About 60 watches were produced and no further production planned, as Guinand answered me. I got it from another WUS member.

    As much I can remember, our good TOPAZ has this watch too.

    This one is equipped with custom engraved swan neck regulator.

    This watch has a HS81 movement. The HS81 (HS for Helmut Sinn) is a modified Unitas (rare 6503) manual movement with central seconds.

    I ordered this Mr Jones 'Sun and Moon' when it was on Black Friday special last year.

    It arrived in Oz on December 17th then bounced around within the postal service for almost three weeks and is now inexplicably on its way back to the UK. AusPost never even tried to deliver it to my address and no-one can tell me why.
    Hopefully when Mr Jones gets it back their second attempt at sending it to me will succeed.

    Yantar Airnautic II GMT. I love Yantar watches.

    Yes, this is kind of a gmt watch. But 24h dial is here even more important than 12h dial.
    Yantar had three different models named GMT. This one, the 2nd, is the most 24-ish of them.
