Nivada chronograph with Valjoux 7736. I had already decided to sell it, but found another 19mm strap in my strap department, which I put on. Now I am not so sure anymore...
The case (in fact the whole watch) was pretty beaten when I got it, so this will never be restored any further than it is now.

Going for the very unusual this last-day-of-the-workweek, a vintage Wostok (later Vostok, or, for the purist, "Boctok") piece from the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, or USSR. It's powered by a Russian-built mechanical/hand-wind movement, and mounted in a stainless steel case.

Image

The original strap was black alligator, but that one went the way of the Yugo some time ago. I've replaced it with a high-gloss 'gator strap that really seems to fit its personality, and helps to make the whole package a wonderful addition to my modest little collection of vintage watches.

Image

My favorite feature, though, is its very rare and unusual dial face, which is made up of a delicate & compelling floral pattern pressed into the dial's unknown material (probably leather, according to my watchmaker). My next-favorite facet of this beautiful watch is the notation at the six o'clock position: "Made in USSR." 8-)

Have a great Friday, all!
