Again. great Pictures and very interesting stuff. What I like most is the Information about the soviet watches. This is an important argument to keep the forum running so that the Information isn´t lost forever.

A new one in the collection. Number 15798 of 30+ thousands produced on this caliber. The end of 1975, still in the good shape

One more soviet early LCD watch for foreign market is in my collection. There's no any name, only QUARTZ on the plastic glass. Sometimes you can find it as Meister Anker. The module was produced in May 76, design is common for more early model with smaller LCD. The watch came to me from Germany, fully complete with original parts. After changing diodes it started with perfect accuracy.

just a few different types of cases of Elektronica 3049 I had found in 3 years. The difference in style of case, color (Chrome, Gold) and manner of finishing (shiny, Satin brush, combination). The left model and the first in the bottom row are made of stainless steel - qte rare matherial for USSR. Pay attn for models with bracelets. It was not common to make watches with individual bracelets. You could buy some bracelet separately. But sometimes watches were equipped with original bracelets. Two models (bottom row two last ones) - are equpped with bracelets in GB and Europe - models are for export only.

One more watch from calendar. There was one interesting calendar for 1977. Seems to me these ones - the very first watches from the end of 1974. I found one with yellow-lemon dial with traditional shape of case. As to other two - I didn't meet them before. But in January I found a watch with very interesting design. The case is the similar like in calendar (the second watch) but transparent glass replaced on painted one. Design of glass is very similar to Microma. Microma really was a proto for the first LCD digital watches.

2. A watch from calendar - very first watch from late 1974

A warm hug to all lovers of watches! I'm coming for help, please! I have an Elektronika 5 b6 02! However the watch have a problem which is lack of contrast of the dial, making it sometimes difficult to see the hours even though it has new batteries! Can anyone give me help in solving this problem? Thank you very much. :-(

First of all try to change upper polaroid film on LCD. If it doesn't work - change diodes and capacitor - voltage uprises two times there, maybe problems with components.

After years of investigation I found first Ladies LCD watch, made in february of 1976. It is based on 3049 chips but has 1.5 V power supply, so there are a few differences with gents one.

What a fascinating thread about vintage Soviet lcd watches. It has me thinking about shopping for a new or possibly vintage digital.
