But need your recommendation overall seeing as your the only one with one in his FoldI do love the Look⌚️


I love the watch overall and all of the design details. It is a bit.....”rustic”....compared to most watches today (it is a virtually-unchanged 50-year old design, after all) but that’s one of the charms of com-bloc products.

The movement is durable and easy to regulate; the bracelet is crap (though I like cheap bracelets); the hands look like they’re paper thin; the lume sucks; the case finishing is rudimentary; the high-dome acrylic crystal attracts hard surfaces; the chromed-brass bezel feels as cheap as it looks......

In other words, it’s OUTSTANDING! Probably the best $50 I’ve ever spent. It always brings a smile to my face when I wear it and think of the unique Soviet approach to problem solving.

Hopefully I’ll get it back in-time (or discovery that yesterday’s measurement was an anomaly).

Been Catching up on some much needed Sleep 💤 Today after 4 days solid awake.






Why the lack of sleep?

PM me about it if you like. I'd really like to know.

My biggest fear, though, is not that I’ll steer you wrong, but rather that this watch may quite a bit smaller than you’re used to. There are many case shapes and sizes available, but nothing quite like the monsters you regularly trot out around here!
