Default Soviet watch collection

I have 3 watches that were made in the USSR. Don't know the age of them. None of them were sold with straps-I put them on.

Slava






Poljot






Pobeda "Glasnost"

Taking a peek at your pieces here... Very nice! That Slava you have there is Pre-Second Russian Revolution for certain due to the markings, as Slava went belly up right after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. Watches bearing the Slava name are still made today, but aren't made in Russia any longer. Poljot was, at one point, the flagship watch manufacturer for the Soviet Union, but their current status is unclear at best due to Volmax assuming control of the brand. Pobeda is actually wholly owned and manufactured by Raketa and is one of the last three watch manufacturers left in Russia, with the other two being Vostok and Zaria.

Thanks. I named it "Speedy" because it gains about 80 secs a day.
