A REAL fake!

I KNEW this was fake when I bought it. I got it as a novelty mostly.

This is a watch I stopped wearing when the war started. Its an incredibly blatent frankenfake. A real 1970s Molinja pocket watch, with soldered on lugs and a face hot off the printer. The kind of watch credulous Americans love to snatch up on eBay. I swear the sillier the fake the more worked up they get.

I bought it mostly to annoy the kind of people who end any coversation by calling me a “Communist” without knowing what the word actually means.

Maybe it’s a fake…but it has some fabulous art work on the dial! Quite stunning.

For people of a certain politics. “Communist” is a euphamism for “you don’t get to disagree with me!” :)

If you could translate all that scroll text, that would be great. Is the second hand slightly bent or is that an viewing angle thing?

I do not understand why you stopped wearing it after the war started. This watch is from another time and has nothing to do with the current Russian dictatorship and the war they started. USSR is not Russia. So, wear the watch in good health, and continue annoying your commie-hating friends.

The text says "Workers of all countries unite" and "Made in USSR"

I just want to know if it's a Russian made fake or a Chinese fake.

Its 100% a vintage Soviet Pocket watch. Its just wrist converted with a printed face.
