The Industrialist 3
by AHW Studio
A higher-grade Russian movement. This watch movement originates from the 1960's, and is at a size where it remains subtle but simultaneously eye-catching. It is polished over with a beautiful light-catching "GENEVA STRIPES" - a Swiss technique used by Russian horologists to give their watches a decorative and subtle finish.
Circa 1950's - 70's.
19mm x 15mm, excluding bail.
'16 камни' (16 'stones' - jewels). Jewels are ruby bearing-points inset by the watchmaker to reduce friction caused by the movement of rotating gears.
"GENEVA STRIPES" - notice the striped lines of polishing running vertically down the watch. A Swiss decorative technique that is commonly used for enhancing aesthetics.
