Vintage 1968 Ussr Russian Soviet Hight Quality Split Time Stopwatch For SaleUNIQUE AND RARE TYPE OF STOPWATCHES
SOVIET HIGHT QUALITY VINTAGE 1968
VERY BEAUTIFUL MECHANICAL WORK. I am very pleased to offer rare top Soviet quality mechanical Russian Split Time Stopwatch, 20 Jewels. Ecxellent-Very good condition. Made in 1968. This is an awesome Russian made stopwatch, the SLAVA brand. This stopwatch is well made, it is large, solid and heavy. The body is finished in a mirror-polished chrome. The movement has 20 jewels (rubies). The instrument has two second arms and one minute arm and allows to time two events (split time). It was made at the 2nd Moscow Watch Factory - one of the leading watchmakers of theSoviet Union.
The stopwatch has three buttons - start/stop, second arm stop, reset. How it works: Top (large) knob pressed - start, left side knob pressed - one arm stops, 2nd second and minute arms are moving. Left side knob pressed again - the first arm jumps and becomes aligned with the moving one (they are moving together now). Top knob pressed to stop, right side knob is pressed to reset. The watch is clean overall and fully functional. It is very challending to produce a nice image of this instrument. Its dial has metallic finish with a radial pattern - looks great but hard to make a still image.
Don't lose your chance to get this unique clock in your possession.

Thank You For offerding and Good for the owner of antiquarian watches: All Antique watches are mechanical. Many repairs will not be cheap, as most likely they will require replacement of non-standard parts (unlike most late model watches).
- Antique watches should not be beaten or dropped - because repairs may be expensive.
- Antique watches are generally NOT waterproof. This is because waterproofing was not in general production until the middle of the 20th century for most watches. Therefore you should protect your antique watch from exposure to moisture.
- If your watch becomes wet it should be dried off quickly. Carefully open all covers and use a hair drier to blow dry the movement, dial, covers, crown. This will reduce the amount of rust.
- If your watch becomes wet with any kind of salt water you should immediately immerse or spray your watch with fresh (no-salt) water to remove all the salt from the works before drying the watch completely. Any salt left in the watch will combine with moisture in the air to rust metal components of the movement, case etc.
- Winding any mechanical watch tight may break the mainspring. If you can avoid it do not wind the watch hard.
- When adjusting the hands of your watch, move them in a clockwise direction only. Counter-clockwise adjustments may damage the movement.
- If you must adjust counter-clockwise make it for small adjustments only (i.e. for minutes, NOT hours).
- Be careful and gentle when adjusting the movement speed (faster or slower). Don't make sharp movements, and don't touch other components in the movement especially the pendulum mechanism.
- Every 2-3 years it is necessary to service and oil vintage watches.
- IF the watch is dirty - allow the watch to run down, don't wind it again until you have it serviced by a qualified watch repair expert. Dust will absorb and remove important lubricants and cause the movement pieces to wear down.
- To clean the case, dial and crystal you should use a cloth that does NOT leave fibers as these may get caught up in the movement. Check with your Watch repair expert to get an appropriate cloth.
- Keep your antiques watch away from magnets. Strong magnetic fields may affect the accuracy of your watch since some vintage watches were made with iron based components in the movement.
- Most Cases and Covers are fine components and will not handle abuse well. The watch should not be shaken, beaten, or stressed.
- Antique watches generally experience an error of up to 5-7 minutes a day. Any accuracy of +- 5 minutes is very good. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE offerDING: Vintage watches are very delicate and I package to the highest degree to prevent High altitude flights can be hard on watches due to extreme temperature changes. This can cause the oil viscosity to decrease (gum up) and prevent a watch from ticking (the balance moving freely etc.). It may need to be oiled when it arrives regardless of its recent servicing (if applicable). Although this is only a very slight possibility it can occasionally happen. Please bear in mind that you are buying a used watch and it will require service at some point in time. Free Shipping WorldWide Including Insurance.Worldwide shipping usual takes 10-14 working days.
