I know it’s legitimate Soviet era and not NOS, but unsure if is 24 hour movement or a 12 hour movement converted. I will check in the next few weeks and let you know. Regards, judg69
Life is short. Enjoy the ride!
Also, the presence of a day/date wheel on a Raketa indicates a 2614 or 2628 movement, which are 12-hour movements. I've seen no indication that these have ever been converted to 24-hour, whereas countless 2609s (which have no date wheel) have been. I'd be keen to hear of a converted 2628H movement.
Edit: I just had a play with a 2614H and a 2628H movement and quickly determined that the day/date wheel is driven directly by the hour wheel, which has to fully rotate twice to trigger the day/date shift. Converting this mechanism to 24-hour would be almost impossible if you wanted to retain the day/date wheel. This is why I doubt the existence of any Raketa 2614H/2628H conversion to 24-hour with a working day/date.

Sky Solunar today. I haven't seen it some years, now discovered it in my drawer. I am very happy that after changing the batterys (yes, two, one for the analogue watch and one for digital watch) I could set it up.
Sky Solunar was made in California before the Yes watches started. Very similar setup. We have here one hand analogue true 24h watch with a lot of digital stuff running on the dial.
Without manual you can not operate this type of watch. I added as attachments here below the original manuals as pdf files. Take them if you need. It seems to work! I never before even tried to attached other files, only pictures.
The hunt is half the fun.
Love this watch. Time keeping is pretty good during a 24hr period. No date is a positive aspect since I keep my watches in rotation, and it is cumbersome to set the date everytime.
And price point is really affordable. Lum is on weakside which is not that important for me.
