This 1956 Pobeda Soviet watch, made in the Moscow factory, has a 15 jewel manual winding movement and sub seconds dial.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
We can date this to the last quarter of 1956 from the serial number on the watch movement.
Russian watches are increasingly collected as a great way of getting great watches without having to spend a fortune. Sites like Watches of the USSR do a great job of documenting the watches and their history. They even have the brochure for this exact model.
This watch is a very good example. The case is very good, with just minimal marks. The acrylic crystal is new, as is the leather strap. The dial is good, with just small amounts of patina near the centre and on the edge near 2. The golden numerals, with open 6 and 9, are all complete. The hands are gold syringe style. The movement is running well and keeping good time.
This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
