Russian Wristwatches: Pocket Watches, Stop Watches, Onboard Clock & Chronometers (Schiffer Book for Collectors)
Twentieth century Russian wristwatches are too costly for many native buyers, but they are still inexpensive for Western Collectors, and are becoming extremely popular. Watch faces commemorate all the great moments of Russian and Soviet history-from Yuri Gagarin's space flight to the Summit meeting between Gorbachev and George Bush-and celebrate Russian culture with images of native costumes from Chechnya to the Ukraine. Collectors have long clamored for a definitive reference and this new book will satisfy even the most avid enthusiast, with photographs of over 500 watches manufactured in Russia and the USSR during the second half of this century, and explanations of their styles, workings, and manufacturers. Poljot, Wostok, and Slava wristwatches are covered, along with a sampling of pocket watches, deck watches, and marine chronometers. This book is a must for serious collectors in the growing field of Russian timekeepers.
Antique Pocket Watches and, unfortunately, me
I was really trying to take pictures of the watches, not me. Anyway the description below these gave a neat summary of the history of pocket watches.
"In the 15 and 16 centuries, the boom in maritime exporation and advances in science and technology, such as Galileo's discovery of the property of the pendulum, created the framework for creation of portable timepieces. German and French watchmaers initiated the trend, converting the portable carriage clock to a smaller, more decorative pocket watch worn on a chain around the neck or suspended from the belt. Cases were pierced in elaborate patterns to allow the wearer to hear the striking of the movement and covers were often made of rock crystal to allow the dial to be seen without the case being opened. Oval shapes were popular in the early 17th century, gradually giving way to faceted or lobed crystal shapes in later decades."
