HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the serial number on the movement we can accurately date this watch to being produced in the third quarter of 1958.
Kama watches were made in the 2nd Moscow watch factory, alongside Pobeda and later Sekonda, and you can read more about them here. The 17 jewel movement is calibre 2603, with the correct for the time 2 screws on the crown wheel (later it switched to one screw in 1959). The movement is finished with machined stripes, similar to cotes de Geneve, and this is working well. The dial has been refinished in black, and the minute track isn’t complete around 1. Up very close you can see some paint overlap on the hour markers, and the lume on the hands and dial appears to be the same distinctive green that Sekonda used in the 1970’s and 1980’s. The case has numerous marks, and the case back is a bayonet fitting rather than screw down that you might assume. The soft pilot style strap is new, but a conventional strap could be fitted if preferred.
This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
