This may be the first comment of yours where I have not seen the above line included, certainly a rare oversight on your part brother, after all we are our brothers keeper, right John ?:25:

Nice finds, the Slava might have a twin barrel movement?

You're right . I haven't opened it up but I was bidding on another Slava where the seller posted a pic of this . I wasn't sure if that's what it was so made an inquiry and he confirmed that fact . He said they were 'married".

Nice :) (married? Like movement and case not originally together?)
IIrc the twin barrels in this movement are to be able to fit a bigger balance wheel for higher accuracy.

I'll guess 70's , but I'm not sure . I just installed a new crystal on the Slava that's all dial face and it made the watch "pop"...it really looks nice.
