    I am a law librarian/lawyer. Married w/2 kids. Love the game of golf but can’t play it to save my life though. I’m a long suffering Mets fan and, lately, a Cyclones fan too. Hobbies include collecting watches, blogging & studying local history.

    I don’t know whether this website is still up and running, but I wondered if I could ask you a favour?

    I’m a british journalist currently based in Washington D.C. I’m looking to write an article on the soviet clock making industry, and am having trouble finding the books I need. I don’t suppose you have come across them, given your interests?

    They are:

    * Сухорукова А. Э. Часовых дел мастера: Рассказ об одном заводе/Л.: Дет. Лит., 1983. — 108 с.;
    * Тютенкова А. Г. Сверяя время Л.:Лениздат, 1986. −181с.

    I’d be grateful for any advice you might have,

    I’m not familiar with either of those I’m afraid as I don’t read Russian. There are, however, two fairly good books on the Soviet watch industry.

    The first, “From Springfield to Moscow: The Complete Dueber-Hampden Story” by James Gibbs.

    The second is Juri Levenberg’s book Russian Wristwatches.

    The Gibbs book, in particular gives a very interesting historical discussion of the relocation of the old American watch factory Deuber Hampden to the Soviet Union in the late twenties. It was this factory that got the Russian watch manufacturing industry going.

    Hey Ed, I am a Law Librarian in NYC and a WUS. I tremendously enjoy your reviews on your site and in the Seiko/Citizen forums as well.
    You have an amazing knowledge of a wide variety of watches.
    I have owned [used] and sold Omega Seamaster, Breitling Superocean. Currently have a mix of Citizen, Seikos and G Shocks. Don’t like women’s watches.

    Ed, I don’t know anything about watches but I have bought a vintage Molnija 3602 SU, sn- 218512. This is a gift for my boyfriend, who does know antiques and counterfeit merchandise. He has a fascination with Russia, present and past. That’s something else that I don’t know anything about… But I wanted to get him an awesome gift that he would keep forever! 🙂

    My question is, can you tell me if hit a home run with this watch or stay in the dugout. Ha

    Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.

    Nice looking example. 3602 powered Molnija. I’m guessing it was made shortly after the Berlin wall came down. Made to honor the Russian victory in WWII. Looks good.
