    Good evening, all!

    Just bought a Russian watch that works very similarly to the Le Coultre Memovox. Came with a little piece of paper. Wondering if anyone would be so kind as to translate the paper and the markings on the watch itself for me.

    Many thanks!

    Best regards!

    A quick response is that your watch is a "Signal" brand with 18 jewels, made in the Kirov Factory of the USSR. The photo is somewhat blurry but I'm pretty sure I've made out the characters.

    The paper is your 6-month guarantee.

    Here's a more detailed translation of the paper. Actually it's not in Russian, but Ukrainian.

    I've used question marks to signify cursive entries that I can't make out. It's very difficult to decipher someone's handwriting in a foreign language esp. where Cyrrilic characters are employed, at least for someone like me who wasn't born & raised in the Ukraine.

    So we have:

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Guarantee Token

    Customer ?

    Watch Brand ? Signal

    Cost of Services 35 ?

    Date of Order Issuance 25/07/2019

    Authorized Signature ?

    Guarantee Valid Throughout 6 months

    The repair location address ? [something about Lutsk, being a city in the Ukraine]

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I hope this helps. This is the best I can do. I wish that my father & uncles were still alive, they were native Ukrainian speakers.

    Many thanks, Viclip!

    The watch did come from the Ukraine. I just assumed all the info was in Russian.

    This is very helpful! Actually, I had no idea they were guaranteeing it.

    Thanks again!

    Best regards!

    It just looks like an ordinary watchmaker’s warranty card issued after servicing.
    Nice watch, early Signal brand version. Later pieces were simply marked Poljot
