Description

A very early Sekonda, imported from the USSR before Sekonda GB was set up.

HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?

The movement in this watch was made between 1956 and 1963, and Sekonda GB was set up in 1966 to import their Russian watches.  Before the GB company was set up, Sekonda USSR sold a few directly to the UK, and this must be one of those.  Given this history, and the watch styling, we date this watch to circa 1963.

CONDITION

Very nice.  The dial is very clear, and features applied hour numerals rather than just printed.  The case is good with just a little damage to the rear, which you don’t see at all when wearing the watch.  The sweep second hand has some corrosion.  A new acrylic crystal is fitted, as is a new leather strap (this could be swapped for black leather if the buyer preferred – the watch arrived to us with a period expanding bracelet that could also be fitted instead of the brown leather strap).  This must be a rare watch in this condition.
