A Russian chronograph watch Poljot Buran which I bought in 1990 on a flee market in Germany for about 90 Euros (100 German Marks then), when the future of Russia seemed wide open... This watch is manufactured on machines which were bought by the Soviet Union from Swiss watch companies. As a strange side aspect, the design is a copy of a German military watch, the "Tutima Fliegerchronograph" from World War II (!), an image of which is here and in the file description
