    Hi!
    Here is my soviet submarine clock:




    This clock is 8.2" wide (21cm) at the base, 6 5/8" wide (17cm) on front, and 2 7/8" thick (7,5cm). The case is made of thick aluminium, and the weight is nearly 3kg. The key is used to open the porthole and to wind up the clock. When wind up, the clock works for 10 days. The porthole is waterproof (you can see the black rubber ring on inner side of porthole). On open clock picture, you can see number 2-77 engraved on the clock case. It's the date of manufacture: february 1977. The caption below number 6 says "Sdelano v SSSR" (Made in USSR). There are some variants about face: most oftenly, numbers are printed in black, and hands are black simple sticks. On this one, numbers and hands glow in the dark. This kind of clock appeared on soviet submarines in the second half of the 50's. I bought this clock two years ago from a russian seller, and it works perfectly!
