    **** Let's talk Cornavin ****

    Well I was looking at one of the Russian seller's for a part for a raketa and saw this kinda like the dolphin on the dial and the clean lines of the watch and it was cheap haha which is always good. So I bought it well the case is as beat up as sin but you expect. that...... nice movement and works what more could you want... oh yes pics lol






    well what do I know of them the Cornavin not a lot if I'm honest think they are a raketa brand ?
    and I have seen one or two around but not that many there are probably loads but they don't show on my search criteria thinking about it






    so let's see the Cornavin's if you have them or if you know anything about them ?


    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 ...
