I put this on earlier, can't remember how to use the quick-set date, and it was too near midnight to risk it anyway, so I'll sort it when safe - automatic homage to the Russian NII 'hummer' (reverse engineered accutron) developed for the cosmonauts.  The original used mercury batteries.

'Almost 22mm' one-piece leather strap squishing between those 'almost 21mm' lugs quite nicely - the spring bars are well away from the case so the 2mm thickness is easily accommodated.

And me buckling up on the side of my wrist so I don't scratch my desk! :tongue:

HAGD!

watch I've never really bonded with so last chance saloon for it today

To me sometimes a watch can be like 'english curry' -  very nice and nothing wrong with it on your chips, but doesn't especially stir a hankering if you've not had it for a bit.  Doesn't have the 'draw' of a Madras or Vindaloo!

Morning,

My fears about its bona fides were dispelled by variants of this thing being found in the Slava catalogues of the mid-‘80s. Runs on a twin-barrel 26j Slava 2428 hand winder in a 40mm case with pusher at 2 for the day quick-set.

A curiosity with its almost Dali-esque numerals and, no, it doesn’t run backwards.

Regards.

Rotary automatic, generous giveaway by @andyclient. I couldn't get the bracelet down small enough, so it's now on a Rosario Epsom Dark Blue from UKWatchStrap.

Also had the back off to see if I could identify the movement. I think that says AS 2033, but can't find it on Ranfft, though AS 2063 looks the same.

Perhaps it could be AS2083? Lovely watch btw!

2 of 3 logstores now empty so awaiting arrival of a few logs.

Move to Scotland complete. Engineering job finally punted :thumbsup:. Hopefully notice period over by Xmas , need to do some careful negotiation next week. :boxing:

710 spending next couple of days relocating plants from the sadly missed 810's garden to our hillside plot. No rest for the wicked I suspect.

Hopefully 50 is the new 35 :laughing2dw:

It looks very tidy - do you know if the 3 slots on the left-handed screws is a geographical thing, or is it widespread?

Sorry, wrong date!

Always an issue with watches in rotation  :whistle:- I also believe the quick-set is not always kind to the date-wheel, if true then probably not an issue if you move the date on a day or so  5 times per year, but not ideal scrolling through them every other month.
