This is a pair of rarer Soviet Russian mechanisms originating from the 1960's. They are a comfortable and ergonomic pair, enough to make a statement yet remain suitably subtle. Being circular it fits perfectly on the sleeve - blending in like a button, yet displaying the intricacies clearly. The rose adds a touch of colour to the movement, catching the eye and also contrasting with the inset ruby jewels already present on the watch. A natural distinction from the mechanical complexities...
