Made to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Soviet Union, which in Russian translates to Союз Советских Социалистических Республик, or CCCP.


The Soviet Union was founded in 1922, and this watch was made to celebrate the 60th anniversary in 1982.


The Zim watch company has an interesting history, and a great write up can be found here by a world renown expert in Russian watches (and, we are happy to say, a customer of ours).  This watch is powered by the manual wind 2602 movement that was in  production for 50+ years, so naturally the watch works well.  The chromed case is not perfect, and they rarely are, but easily wearable.  The dial features a map of the Soviet union, with Moscow highlighted, and has a sub seconds dial.  The NATO strap may technically be at odds with a CCCP watch, but the colours suit and this can be switched for a leather strap is required.  It is quite hard to find mechanical watches from the early to mid eighties, when quartz was king.

This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
