Reviewed by Andrew Babanin Having checked Time Zone and other watch sources I found that most visitors consider that Russian watches are unreliable, the Russians cannot produce good quality movements, most watchmakers know only several calibers: Ex Valjoux 7734 - Poljot 3133, quite common 2612 with alarm and Molnija - a pocket movement 3602.Somewhat it's true - Russia had stopped producing many calibers, designing new ones.The quality of finishing is bad, you can notice an aberrance in technological process, find replacements: for example some jewels are replaced on metal inserts.Only Poljot tries to improve situation and still makes unique watches, pocket watches, marine chronometers.Otherwise Russia was very strong in watchmaking traditions and produced really interesting movements.For example, Russia became producing quartz watches at the same time like other countries, in 1975 Russians had started producing LCD and LED watches.
Till now it has no shock absorbing device:( Btw Molnija means lightning.This one is 2209 Caliber, produced at Vostok manufacture.You can find this movement in first Komandirskije watches. You can also notice high quality finishing - brushed bevelled bridges, anglage, Colimaconnage, polished screws, Breguet hairspring. One of the slim movements caliber 2209 "Vympel" (Pennon).Its thickness is about 2,9 mm, central seconds, shock protecting system, 23 jewels.
