Raketa 24hr "Polar" Watch



I have been looking for one of these early Raketa "Polar" 24hr watches for a long time.
I have had the chance to buy a few in the past, but they were always way out of my budget.
I bought this one of a seller, new to me, for a very, reasonable offer.

As you can see , most importantly it has the correct Baltika cal;2623 21 j , early movement, note the narrow beveled edge.

Unusually, the case and dial, are in excellent condition. The one drawback is the tip of the central seconds hand has broken off, but i can live with that.

Keeps great time.

I have a second, rarer Polar, coming soon.
