    I am the original owner, purchased from a Russian eBay seller in 2012.
    The watch was advertised as New Old Stock, cleaned and oiled before sale.
    The watch did not come with strap or box, but did appear to be in like-new condition.
    I am including a thick soft IWM “shell cordovan” calf-leather strap, which shows some minor creases from occasional use.
    Dimensions: 40mm x 12mm, plexi crystal, 18mm lug width
    Movement: Poljot 2623, manual wind 17 jewel, 24 hour.
    Internal rotating chapter ring allows viewing a second time zone.
    (This ring moves quite freely, and tends to slip when the 2nd crown is nudged)
    Watch is rarely worn, in almost-new condition.

    This is my favorite version of the Raketa world time watches. I’m selling it because it doesn’t get worn very much, and the collection has gotten a bit too large. The hand-wind is very smooth and the watch runs well (I have not measured its accuracy.) In the three years I have owned the watch, I probably wore it about 20 times, in a rotation with over 40 other watches.

    I’m trying to keep an oversized collection in check. I try to give full disclosure about known conditions. I don't make profit on my sales, so I prefer to ship only in north America, but I'm flexible if you are. Selling as-is. I promise I am describing full known condition (veering towards negatives for this reason, knowing and sharing our slightly obsessive WIS nature.) Price includes Paypal fees and shipping USA/Canada first class un-insured. (If you want special or overseas shipping we can discuss extra costs.) I have purchased and sold many watches as “skywatch” on WUS, with good feedback. Also this on IWL: http://www.intlwatchleague.com/showt...eat-seller-*** Thanks! - Robert
