BASIC WATCH CARE RULES
The following practical tips will help you protect your watch from adverse factors in everyday use:
- Never try to open the watch or remove the case back
- The watch should be checked at least once a year for resistance to water and dust. If necessary, replacement of the gaskets should be performed only in authorized service centers.
- Before submerging the watch in water, make sure the crown is in the first position.
- If water enters the case, bring the watch to an authorized service center as soon as possible.
- Do not subject the watch to extreme conditions (above 60 degrees Celsius or below -5 degrees Celsius). While the watch is being worn body heat protects it from extreme temperature changes.
- Do not drop, hit, or strike the watch.
- Do not fasten the strap too tightly. The watch should be fastened as to allow a finger between the watch strap and arm.
- The watch should be kept in a dry place.
- Prevent the watch from being exposed to gasoline, cleaning supplies, aerosols, paints, etc, as they may react with it and damage the gaskets, case and/or its coating.
- The sapphire crystal has a special anti-scratch coating but can crack if struck or dropped.
- Store the watch away from jewelry, as diamonds can scratch the crystal.
- Store the watch in a separate box lined with soft fabric.

1. I have old (pocket, table) watch/clock manufactured by Molnija. It’s very precious thing for me and I would like to know more about it. Can I find out how many watches/clocks like this have been produced? What is the exact year of production?
Chelyabinsk watch and clock factory MOLNIJA produced about a million household hours a year in Soviet times from 50 to 80-90. Unfortunately, the documentation on the numbers of the movements and the release dates were not preserved at the factory. You can send us an e-mail photo of the watch and the movement with the back cover open to determine the approximate dates of the watch. For pocket watches with a 3602, 3603 caliber, a guide to Molnija movements was compiled by users of the Russian watch forum. If you wish, you can compare your movement with the descriptions in this guide https://goo.gl/FoKNm1 (it is in Russian language).
2. Can I buy spare parts for 3602/3603 caliber?
At this time, the details of the 3602/3603 movements are not supplied separately, as there is no such technical possibility.
