Gorgeous, well-made watch gets lots of compliments
on February 24, 2014
I'd never heard of CCCP brand watches before seeing this one. I liked the unusual appearance, and bought it on a whim. I am very pleased I did. It quickly became my #1 watch. As the listing states, it has a fully automatic mechanical movement. It has great heft to it, and keeps excellent time. It has proven itself to be more accurate than my Seiko automatic -- so much so that I have not needed to adjust it in more than two weeks.
Note that the instruction manual included is a generic one for various watch models, and does NOT include the correct instructions for setting the date indicator. There is a button on the side of the case at the 2:00 position. Depressing the button advances the date indicator by one day. Other commenters apparently couldn't figure that out, and so concluded wrongly that the watch was defective.
It really is a stunningly beautiful piece. Colleagues of mine who appreciate fine watches always notice it and ask about it, and always express admiration after seeing it up close. The use of blue tinted (front) and red tinted (back) glass to allow a view of the movement is unique and distinctive, and the polished copper numerals and hands compliment those colors beautifully.
