I live in West Yorkshire, UK. A few years ago I bought a Russian open face Molnija with an embossed locomotive on the back cover. After a while I discovered there were different designs and began to collect them ....

.... to date I have fourteen (most recent not in this photo').

My search for open face Molnijas gained a second string when I realised they produced 'badged' watches - the first I came across was ADANAC, then MARATHON ............ and so on. This collection now numbers over twenty.

Another spin-off sprang from the purchase of another Russian watch, which turned out to be a Cortebert for Turkish State Railways ....

Apologies for the poor photographs - I will take better ones and post later.

.... A combination of retirement and rising prices makes it unlikely the collection will grow much larger.

The production of Molnijas ceased in 2007, many of those now offered for sale appear to be Ukranian/Bulgarian franken watches cobbled together from parts and offered up for silly prices.
