Howdy!

Hey, y鈥檃ll! My name is Diego. I鈥檓 a medical student and am in love with all types of watches. Here鈥檚 my current favorite with a new strap that just came in. 馃槵

Good to have you here! That timepiece looks like a whopper--perhaps a re-cased pocket watch movement?

I don鈥檛 think so? I鈥檓 not sure what a whopper is haha. I think it鈥檚 called a Moscow Classic.

Ah, I just mean "whopper" in the sense of "that appears to be a BIG watch." I have one roughly the same size with the same small seconds subdial, and discovered after a bit of research that its guts had originally been assembled as a Molnija pocket watch in the early 1950s. Love that strap!

Nice watch. I have never heard of Moscow Classic. I'll go check them out! Learned something new today.

Enjoy that watch!

Cheers!
