Alarm Off button at top in red, Mechanical, 11 Jewel wind-up mechanism, luminous hands, all present near new, soft aged patina. This is early Soviet manufacture as it is “Made in USSR”, (pre CCCP), as shown on the face plus Jewel numbers 11. Perfect dial and clear cover, very minor marks to case, otherwise; like new. It is not a Chronometer, but keeps very good time, maybe +/- a few minutes per day? It has a minor Speed adjustment lever at rear for fine tuning. The history of the SLAVA trademark is directly related to the history of the Second Moscow Watch Factory, which was created in 1924. The first products of the plant were wall clocks, alarm clocks, chess, car and electric clocks. In 1937, the first batch of pocket watches was produced. Russian watches were first introduced to China, which started the Chinese Watch Industry. Dimensions approx.: 7.8cm high overall; face diameter 6.6cn dia. Russia. Circa 1940.
