Question about Vostok Europe "Rocket N 1" Black Dial with Numbers / Black Ip Bracelet / Black Ip Case Watch
I have a 70s vintage Vostok Komandirskie Paratrooper watch with the green face and a manual wind It has a screw in crown at the 2 o clock position. I picked it up on ebay - appears to be unused . The issue is that the hour hand does not want to advance. You can set the time OK . It appears to keep the correct time minutes and seconds wise but won't advance the hour with normal operation.
This is the first russian watch I've owned. Am I missing something?
Any ideas. The watch is in mint shape and the luminosity is still present but faint.
Is there a quirk to setting the time or did I get an attractive Russian paperweght?

The crown holds in place by one little screw inside of the watch. It is a very easy fix - you just need too open the watch and tighten the screw.
Or even better solution - send it back for repair. All Vostok-Europe watches are covered by 24 months warranty.
