Raketa Small Seconds c. 1960s



I just love these old mechanical Russian watches.  They always run like a champ and their designs are down right charming.  This one from the famed Petrodvorets watch factory is no exception with it's quaint military / pilot feel about it.  The dial extremely legible and the small seconds register is stepped down giving it a lovely depth.
