    **** My new Raketa ****


    Well bought this for a comp on another thread so thought I would give a little review on it




    well it's a Raketa


    nickname the rocket not sure why ?

    it has a 2609 ha movement not sure that the right one ? as It looks like a
    2628 h movement to me but seem to look right in there and works.





    well will need regulating.


    and on the case back seem to be a impressed mark of cross hammers with p w
    25




    have not got a clue what that is ?


    any thoughts on the movement question or why it's called a rocket ?

    yeah had my eye on it but as it had no movement pic's I was in two minds of buying it and I thought sod it I would buy for the contest then if it turn out bad at least the thread would get a laugh.
    but it might just be a good buy it's about two minutes fast. off the gecko but sometime they need to settle so will leave it to see if it does but yeah love the sun burst dial
