This one came in the mail yesterday.

A soviet era mechanical Raketa 24 hour watch with the 2623.H movement.

The idea behind the 24 hour dial is that crew on submarines or polar explorers knew wether it was AM/PM. Or just to sound cool. I guess most were sold on the latter.

Fits nice with the rest of the family:


I’m a design and space nerd. You can’t go wrong with a brand called Raketa (rocket) that made Soviet mechanical watches with odd designs.
