DESCRIPTION of WATCH

For your appreciation, a rare vintage 1970’s Russian USSR collectables, mechanical ART DECO Desktop First Class clock Molnia (with manual winding). The pedestal (which a clock is fastened on) made from a Marble (stone). Such clocks were made for handing famous musicians, as a gift for prominent creation. The given model of a clock is considered rare; very few models of a clock of such type have been let out. The watch is produced at the Molnia (Molnija) Military watch factory, where instrument panel clocks for MiG aircraft and submarines are also made. Molnia (Molnija) Watch & Clock Factory is located in Chelyabinsk, industrial center of South Urals Mountain ridge, Russia. It is one of the biggest regions in the mid-Russia known for its talented craftsmen. When you look back to the history of Russia you'll see that Russian Tsars always invited the Ural craftsmen when they wanted to get unique and beautiful things for their palaces or as presents to other countries. The factory was established on November 17, 1947. At first main products were wristwatches, pocket watches, mechanical table clocks and unique technical clocks for tanks and submarines ordered and paid by Soviet Union Department of Defense. Although Molnia Watch and Clock factory still produces some military stuff (such as aircraft clocks), from the end of 50-s and up to the present time the main product of the factory is mechanical 15 -18 jewels pocket watches "Molnia". Eighty percent (!) of work is done by hand. All parts for watches, except jewels and accessories are produced by the factory itself. Vintage dome glass is plastic (Plexiglas). Mechanism has been recently serviced by one of the best watchmakers in my city for guarantee a clock will wind and sets time smoothly while keeping accurate time. This beautiful clock comes to our time in good status and was good saved - if considering age of this clock. You can see the state of clock on pictures it good.

***************************************************************

PLEASE READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE BIDDING!
Antique watches (clocks) are very delicate and I always package items to the highest degree to prevent damage. When it will ship; the high altitude flights can be hard on watches due to extreme temperature changes. This can cause the oil viscosity to decrease (gum up) and prevent a watch from ticking (the balance moving freely etc.). It may need to be oiled when it arrives regardless of its recent servicing (if applicable). Although this is only a very slight possibility it can occasionally happen.
I can not guarantee an excellent running and fully 100% accuracy in keeping time. Please bear in mind that you are buying a used watch which from 20 to 100 years old and it will require additional service at some point in time. If you have any questions after reading the description and viewing the pictures; please email me prior to bidding.

Recommendations for the owner of antiquarian watches:

All Antique and Vintage watches are mechanical. Many repairs will not be cheap, as most likely they will require replacement of non-standard parts (unlike most late model watches).

- Antique watches should not be beaten or dropped - because repairs may be expensive.
- Antique watches are generally NOT waterproof. This is because waterproofing was not in general production until the middle of the 20th century for most watches. Therefore you should protect your antique watch from exposure to moisture.
- If your watch becomes wet it should be dried off quickly. Carefully open all covers and use a hair drier to blow dry the movement, dial, covers, crown. This will reduce the amount of rust.
- If your watch becomes wet with any kind of salt water you should immediately immerse or spray your watch with fresh (no-salt) water to remove all the salt from the works before drying the watch completely. Any salt left in the watch will combine with moisture in the air to rust metal components of the movement, case etc.
- Winding any mechanical watch tight may break the mainspring. If you can avoid it do not wind the watch hard.
- When adjusting the hands of your watch, move them in a clockwise direction only. Counter-clockwise adjustments may damage the movement.
- If you must adjust counter-clockwise make it for small adjustments only (i.e. for minutes, NOT hours).
- Be careful and gentle when adjusting the movement speed (faster or slower). Don't make sharp movements, and don't touch other components in the movement especially the pendulum mechanism.
- Every 2-3 years it is necessary to service and oil vintage watches.
- IF the watch is dirty - allow the watch to run down, don't wind it again until you have it serviced by a qualified watch repair expert. Dust will absorb and remove important lubricants and cause the movement pieces to wear down.
- To clean the case, dial and crystal you should use a cloth that does NOT leave fibers as these may get caught up in the movement. Check with your Watch repair expert to get an appropriate cloth.
- Keep your antiques watch away from magnets. Strong magnetic fields may affect the accuracy of your watch since some vintage watches were made with iron based components in the movement.
- Most Cases and Covers are fine components and will not handle abuse well. The watch should not be shaken, beaten, or stressed.
- Antique watches generally experience an error of up to 5-10 minutes a day. Any accuracy of +- 5 minutes is very good.
