Just received,this,really rather rare[with this dial configuration], Raketa 2209 23j ultra thin,in fantastic condition.This was Raketas quirky,answer to Poljots,cal 2209.I am always on the lookout for them,they are still very cheap,[£20] and great to wear.

K750 [Dnepr] wheels Back from Rebuilding.

Very pleased with the rebuilt wheels,restoration of bike will now proceed apace.

Luch Cal`2209 Ultra Thins Added




Cal 2209 Ultra Thins.The most underrated Russian Watch.Can still be bought ridiculously cheaply,as these two were.
The watches are in lovely condition,both have the generic Luch 2209 movement.
The second one pictured,the linen dialled one,is slightly less common,they are both original,with the proviso,that the linen dialled one,may have had the central seconds hand replaced in the past.

Vostok Amphibia type 350 Swing Lugs Received.


Could not resist this Swing Lugs Vostok type 350,one of my favourite Russian Types.This watch is completely original.A bit battered,maybe,but that suites me down to the ground.Keeps Great time,currently on a temporary strap.Many of these type 350 Amphibians,appearing on e.bay and other auction sites,are increasingly appearing with redials.
