Thread: Any ideas for a Soviet in this vein

    Any ideas for a Soviet in this vein

    A friend of mine (a different one) just emailed me with a photo of this watch



    Don Draper wears it in Mad Men.

    Mid 30s case, dark dial....classic Soviet territory right? But what about full size applied indices? Baton hands, oh yesss.

    So, any suggestions?

    well yes here is the slava / chaba

    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 ...

    Ah good yes they did have applied indices going on before the style changed in the seventies to the short and fat

    Checking ebay for Slava watch didn't bring up fistfuls of these

    yeah I was fearing that it is a bit rarer did not want to disappoint you of the bat.

    but it was the one that is the close you might get a bit luckier if it was a charcoal dial think saw one for about 20 that look in ok shape for age.

    but poljot did something similar but the case was more cushion shape you may get lucky with a luch using any of there other names they use and possible sekonda or maybe even wostok think I did see one once that was very similar if you was a bit fuzzy on some of the detail you would get better say lose the date window and it would open it a lot lot more
