    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I'm fairly new to the Russian watches but the paketa 2623 h is the right movement for the watch so that's good looks like it's n.o.s stock

    not really I got one's that show 24hrs and 12 hrs but the thing is with a proper 24 hrs one.. the hour hands only goes round the dial once compared to a 12 hrs watch where it twice.. if that makes sense but there is four I got my eyes on and when they fall with in my price bracket I will be having them away lol

    Here's one "in the mail" to me. 2623-H movement. 24h dial. Cities of the world (and all other markings), in Cyrillic - there are close cousins marked "Made in USSR".

    Is it ironic that it ships with a NATO strap?

    Seems to be outgoing from Russian customs as I type. I should have it in my hands in a week, or three.

    I found this one while looking at Antarctica commemorative versions - which were also listed as 2623-H movements, but with no added bezel and with only one crown. I'm curious - is the second crown completely independent of the watch movement - and contols only the bezel? That makes some sense to me - but I will remain curious until I actually have it in hand.

    While I was initially attracted to the commemorative Antarctica dial, I ultimately decided that those watches were souvenirs, and this one was more functional. What do you think?

    total agree your's is a world time type one which.. is what it is suppose to do all business it is one of the four I have my eye on the artics are very nice but are more there to look pretty there is nothing wrong in that I will have to put up a few pics when I get round to it of the four I am looking at there two all business and two all pretty lol . but I find I can read them better then I can the jump hours haha

    very nice catch

    I could be mistaken but I would have thought the second crown just works the internal bezel with the world city's on it
