Vostok Volna (2809 precision)


Recommended Posts

It has been a while since i have posted here, but now i have a real specialty for You :)

Vostok Volna (wave) is added to the repairing/restoring queue. This special movement has a fine rate-regulator, indirect second AND indirect minute wheels!!! Moreover, the watch is not stopping if the second wheel is stuck into something. Other special features are the capped escape, second and 3rd wheels (at the dial side only the escape wheel is capped... lol)! The escape wheel is under the balance allowing a bigger balance wheel. 

The gear train was locking, hence the watch was not working. After closer inspection it turned out that most of the ratchet wheel teeth are gone... and the broken pieces were all over in the gear train stopping the movement. After removing the debris it started ticking again.

Nice movement.. I've got two of them somewhere. Only problem is the poor case and hands. The base metal case is really at odds with what I think is a fine movement. The hands on mine (both) are loose and go out of flat if jarred. Problem is its quite thin and using a stake etc doesn't work well here.
