Raketa 2609


The old Raketa caliber 2609 was a beautful, classically constructed mens' size movement.

It contained a directly driven center second hand and also a directly driven center minute indication. The real speciality of that movement is the gold-toned screw balance with its breguet-type hairspring.

This detail was outside russia very expensive and only used in high-end watches and allows very good timing results.

For russian movements, Incabloc shock protections were unusual.

The features gold-tones balance - Incablock shock protections - breguet-overcoil - regulator arm were technically and aesthetically on the top range at the production time.
