    The letters are "Ge" as in go and "Che" (Ch, Tch) as in change or Tchaikovsky. Don't know what they mean though. I don't know any Russian but I do know some Greek and that helped enough to look the letters up.

    I'd suggest that the bigger clue is the boat anchor trademark. It might be related to the Russian Navy or perhaps a Russian manufacturer of nautical clocks.

    Good thought Thyme,I was wondering if their are indivudual national idiosynchrasies by other nations who use the Cyrillic Alphabet and there might be other meanings? Also,how many of them had a navy?

    I'd start the search with the reasonable assumption that it's Russian. When anything is in Cyrillic, Russia was the heavy hitter, compared to their neighbors.

    Navy or something nautical sounds good. Can we see the rest of the clock? I think the anchor is the trademark of the Vostok factory in Chistopol but without seeing the age of the clock it's not easy.

    Hello all.
    I'm sorry that enter into the conversation.
    The inscription on the back of the clock may not be relevant to the very hour, it can mean the place where these watches are, (eg the name of the ship).
    Yours.
    Sergei.

    Sergei,we share similar thoughts,maybe the letters are a short form of the ships name and the number is an inventory number.............

    Here is a link to some similar logos. So it seems that Г. Ч. might stand for something like Государственный Часы and means something like State Clock (factory).

    Hello all.
    It is not easy to guess the value of the inscriptions are not seeing the clock. If this is the clock of the Soviet period, and the inscription means "Government Watch:???:".
    In Soviet times, is usually written "State Watch Factory № ___".
    If the watch is made ​​before 1917 then you should look for a different value of letters.
    In any case, to determine the need photos of the clock
    Yours.
