Pilot Molnija Avia Classic 43mm

One of the last opportunities to get a Russian pilot's watch with the legendary Molnija 3602 pocket watch caliber!

Solid, brushed stainless steel case with 43mm diameter (with crown 48mm), 13mm height and 20mm lug width.

Slightly curved, hardened mineral glass.

Black dial with green, luminous Arabic numerals and luminous hands.

The screwed glass bottom gives a clear view of a veritable Molnija pocket watch movement. A large and correspondingly insensitive balance wheel swings at a comfortable 18,000 halfrotations/hour and the escape wheel, whose height clearance is limited by a cover plate, rotates under a separate cock.

This Molnija 3602 caliber has a 41-hour power reserve and shock protection. It has been in production for a long time and has now become very rare!

The Molnija pocket watch caliber 3602 comes from the Molnija watch factory in Chelyabinsk on the Urals, which today very successfully produces pocket watch movements and precision devices for aircraft and military vehicles. The Molnija watch factory was established at the beginning of the Second World War, when the watch industry, which was concentrated in Moscow, was decentralized for strategic security reasons.

This watch comes with a perfectly matching steel strap made of solid, brushed stainless steel - as well as including RIOS1931 buffalo leather strap Montana.

When ordering, you can choose whether you want the steel strap or the leather strap fitted on delivery.
