RUHLA east German pocket watch.

so now the bug has bitten!!

where do I go with a collection? all russian? all Iron Curtain? as many countries as possible?

well, this one is East German.

a nice clear easy to read face with luminous dots and hands. seems a bit weird ans it lives in a pocket so never gets a chance to "charge up" the luminous paint so it'll glow...... still!!

as usual, I popped the back to find that the movement in here was a tiny little thing! clearly as the demand for pocket watches faded it was more economical to just case a wristwatch movement with a spacer......




according to the very knowledgeable folk on the watchuseek.com forum its a UMF 24 34 movement
