A refined touch - high-grade Soviet Union movement, circa 1960's, with a beautifully machined "GENEVA STRIPES" polishing. It sits across the tie, streamlining the direction of the bar - a statement without overtness. The neutral polished silver finish blends in with most colours you'd wear.
Circa 1950's - 70's.
19mm mechanism length / 41mm overall tie-clip length.
Utilising a rectangular Russian movement with Swiss elements, with 16 ruby jewels and originating from the 1960's. 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 horizontally along the watch? That's a specialised Swiss decorative technique that is commonly used for enhancing the aesthetics, and to indicate a higher-grade watch!
