    Kinda looks like a Slava Cal 2356 quartz movement, but I'm no expert. Slava was made in the 2nd Moscow Watch Factory.

    Russian quartz movements are relatively rare and nowadays the Russian made stuff with quartz has Japanese movements.

    cool I did not think they did much in the way of quartz. I can't think who said it but did they not say something about the Russian man winding his own watch or words to that affect ?.
    so thought it was frown upon to make them ? .
    but did see a nice one once that I missed out on that was a caba to it was inset into a piece of resin so you could see the back of the watch and it had the swatch type battery compartment to change the battery let me see if I can find the pics that was a cool one to me some of the guys was like What !!! lol but I like it uniqueness
