Russian watch for trade. It's a 24h world timer from the 1990s, hand winding with ca. 40h power reserve, Size is 40mm without crown.
The motive is a mobile rocket of the 35th Rocket Division RVSN (Strategic Rocket Forces Russia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strategic_Rocket_Forces).
More on the 35th division http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/35th_Rocket_Division

Due to many questions , here some clarifications:
The watch is not signed Raketa or CCCP, however not all Raketas were signed. There are (to my knowledge) no Raketa fakes. The movement is a genuine russian 2623H SU, typically found in Raketas (http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&Raketa_2623H). The black ring is made of metal, not plastic. Here are similar watches http://www.sammlerpage.de/Verkauf/V_Uhren/U_Raketa/U_Ra_24h/u_ra_24h.html. The watch is loosing ca. 2 minutes a day.

Value : US$ 45.
Trading for a working mechanical watch, e.g. a 1970s Seiko 5 TV dial
