24 Hour movements. Are there any Russian models?

Post by koimaster on Sat Mar 06, 2010 10:52 pm

I know little about Russian watches but I am learning more about them as they become a bigger player in the game. I am if any Russian movements are being built which are 24 hour models or alarm models.

There is an avid collector of Russian 24-hour watches, who maintains a site dedicated to them:

Since 24 hours models have been briefly discussed, here is my little tale on alarms one..
The 2612 is basically a typical manual wind movement with 18 jewels and an alarm mechanism tripped by the hour hand, it has its own spring barrel that is wound separately to power a hammer that in turn bangs against a stump like pin welded to the inside of the case-back.
The 4 o'clock crown is to wind the mainspring and set the time (with the understanding that the hour hand must never be turned backwards past the alarm hand) The 2 o'clock crown operates the wind and set the alarm. A coaxial hand with the hour, minute and second hands shows when the alarm will trigger, the alarm hand can only be turned counter-clockwise.
It is a low beat movement....38/40hours power reserve , shock-proof(if so fitted) in 1959 the Soviet Union's 1st Moscow Watch Factory created the 'Signal' line based on a A. Schilde movement, then improved on the original .....currently is share by other Russian makers like Aviator and models from Winsky-Poljot.
Very accurate and sturdy !!!here is a not so new picture of my 2612 fitted Poljot Dolphin...
