This is a beautiful vintage Slava 27 Jewels mechanical gold-plated watch made in the Soviet Union. The watch has been placed on a nato watch strap to preserve that retro military look from the 60s. The watch is powered by a 27 jewels mechanical movement.
We have quite a few vintage soviet watches from brands like Slava, Pobeda, Vostok, Polijot, Raketa, Luch & others. This is a watch that has been preserved in great condition, with a few signs of aging and wearing. The patina on this timepiece has aged beautifully.
The USSR had an incredible watch production, but unfortunately, that era is long gone and the Swiss watch industry along with Japanese brands are now on top. We believe that these watches deserve love and respect from us watch collectors, and they should carry on that dream that was envisioned for them since inception. Make sure to watch our video and have a closer look at this amazing 80s vintage USSR gold watch!
About mechanical watches
A mechanical watch is a watch that uses a clockwork mechanism to measure the passage of time,as opposed to quartz watches which function electronically, with the help of a small battery.
A mechanical watch is driven by a mainspring whichmust be hand-wound periodically. Its force is transmitted through a series of gears to power balance, a weighted wheel that oscillates back and forth at a constant rate. A device called an escapement releases the watch's wheels to move forward a small amount with each swing of the balance wheel, moving the watch's hands forward at a constant rate.
