Soviet mechanical Almaz watch – 18 jewels


Manufactured on Chistopolsky Watch Factory “VOSTOK”, USSR.


The Almaz brand (Алмаз, meaning “diamond”) featured a striking crab-case design and the highly-accurate caliber 2809B. This caliber was based on the chronometer-grade Vostok 2809, but did not meet such strict timekeeping specifications and did not have a precision balance regulator.

The Almaz brand was retired 1964, when the vast majority of Chistopol Watch Factory brands were consolidated under a single trademark: Vostok. Similarly-designed watches continued to be produced in the 1960s, but only under the Vostok name.


Made in the second quarter of 1960.
