Description

Here we have a 1989 Slava quartz watch. How do I know it's 1989?It commemorates the Matla Summit between Gorbachev and Reagan. Often called the Seasick Summit because the leaders stayed on their respective ships. As you can see from the dial it was the Russian ship Slava and the American ship Belknap.It's got a Slava 3056, first gen quartz movement. This is the movement that hacks when setting the time.
See the "Second Moscow Watch Factory" logo on the movement?With a new 301/LR43 battery it is running 0.0 sec per day accurate after 3 days on my desk.40 mm diameter 42mm lug-to-lug11mm thick18mm strap widthI got this dirty and cleaned it up. Polished and reset the crystal. Cleaned up and reseated the almost stuck bezel.. The case has a little corrosion in the chrome, and the bezel numbers are under plastic, and showing a bit of wear. The original, full length, bracelet is in great shape. For a Russian bracelet it doesn't't pull the hair on my arms (like the Vostok's do)It is a big 40mm watch, unusual for the 80's, but the 4 o'clock crown makes wearing it a breeze.If you're lookin for a nice vintage quartz watch, with a little history this is it.$85
