Reparatur und Erfahrungsbericht einer U-Boot Uhr · 5-24M und einige Informationen zu einem Poljot Marinechronometer auf Englisch. Ich besitze viele dieser einzigartigen Grossuhren und werde bei Gelegenheit einen ausführlichen Bericht mit vielen Bildern dazu verfassen.


In 1997, I bought a new Russian “ship’s watch” for my collection. According to Juri Levenberg’s book Russian Wristwatches, this clock, Model 5-24M, was made at the Wostok Watch Factory in Chistopol, Tatarstan, about 500 miles east of Moscow. It has a painted metal dial that says “Komandirskie” and “Made is USSR.” During the 1960’s and 70’s, commander watches could only be bought in stores reserved for officers. I was curious and the price was attractive, so I bought one. I assumed that, for this price, something had to be wrong with it!
