The Metatechnical Cabinet – Raketa 2609

The old Raketa caliber 2609 was a beautful, classically constructed mens’ size movement.

It contained a directly driven center second hand and also a directly driven center minute indication. The real speciality of that movement is the gold-toned screw balance with its breguet-type hairspring.

This detail was outside russia very expensive and only used in high-end watches and allows very good timing results.
