In wall, desktop and even a pocket watch signal devices have appeared in the Middle Ages. But to create a watch with an alarm clock, suitable for a batch production, long time was not possible. The matter is that any alarm clock consists of two high-grade movements: one usual, for time indication, another - for a call. As a rule, these hours two clockwork springs, two devices of the switching, two wheel transfers. That such big and difficult design to "stamp" till the size of a watch, it is necessary to provide small backlashes between details, so - very high accuracy of their manufacturing. With a signal it is considered one of the most successful movements of a watch the caliber developed in 1954 1475 Swiss companies AS. It differs From others in the small sizes, high reliability and simplicity of use. The perfect design has allowed it to become the most mass in the world. In 1956 aspiration "to catch up and overtake the West" has pushed to the working out beginning in the USSR"Russian cricket". Not to invent a bicycle, the decision to take for a basis design AS 1475 as the most advanced and technically made was accepted. Release of the new movement has been charged 1 МChZ. Only here could create and master a design of similar level of complexity. The movement which has received the name "Signal" and an index 2612, two young designers - Konstantin Kashin and Victor Zaharov developed. Contrary to expectations to create analogue of another's movement it has appeared even more difficult, than to develop own. Distinctions between manufacture possibilities in Switzerland and the USSR did not allow to copy a detail simply. That perfectly worked, being made on "their" technologies, at all refused to work in theUSSR. And the majority of knots should be processed, adapting to available to the equipment and technologies. The processed movement has turned out extremely successful and reliable, hardly probable has not surpassed a primogenitor. Without any changes it was issued 20 years, and only in 1978 has undergone to modernisation and has received an index 2612.1. The basic changes have concerned "hearts" of hours - balance knot. Transition on modern without screws the balance, a new regulator-thermometer and other innovations have allowed to increase accuracy of hours. If till 1978 "Signal" concerned 2 class of hours, after modernisation - to 1. In all the rest the movement has not lost appeal and to this day. Will be in the world of designs which 45 years would exist a little.

Via its USA-based trading company Amtorg, the Soviet government bought the defunct Ansonia Clock Company of Brooklyn, New York in 1929, and the Dueber-Hampden Watch Company of Canton, Ohio. It moved twenty-eight freight cars full of machinery and parts from the USA to Moscow in order to establish the factory. Twenty-one former Dueber-Hampden watchmakers, engravers and various other technicians helped to train the Russian workers in the art of watchmaking as part of the Soviet's First Five-Year Plan. Interestingly, the movements of very-early products were still stamped "Dueber-Hampden, Canton, Ohio, USA" (examples of these watches are very collectible today). In 1935 the factory was named after the murdered Soviet official Sergei Kirov. As the Germans closed in on Moscow in 1941, the factory was hurriedly evacuated to Zlatoust (Russian: Златоу́ст). By 1943 the Germans were in retreat, and the factory moved back to Moscow, adopting the "First Moscow Watch Factory" name (Russian: Первый Московский Часовой Завод - 1МЧЗ). In 1947 the first wrist watches under the brand name "Pobeda" and the first Marine Chronometers and Deck watches are produced. By 1951 the production of wrist watches increases to 1.1 million. In 1975 new machinery and equipment for manufacturing complex watches are partly imported from Switzerland. The first chronograph "Okean" (caliber 3133) is produced for the space station "Sojuz-23." In 1990 production of watches and clocks reaches 5 million pieces and in 1991 the international award "Golden Trophy for Quality" is awarded in Madrid. RECOMMENDATIONS All Antique watches are mechanical. Many repairs will not be cheap, as most likely they will require replacement of non-standard parts (unlike most late model watches). Antique watches should not be beaten or dropped - because repairs may be expensive. Antique watches are generally NOT waterproof. This is because waterproofing was not in general production until the middle of the 20th century for most watches. Therefore you should protect your antique watch from exposure to moisture. If your watch becomes wet it should be dried off quickly. Carefully open all covers and use a hair drier to blow dry the movement, dial, covers, crown. This will reduce the amount of rust. If your watch becomes wet with any kind of salt water you should immediately immerse or spray your watch with fresh (no-salt) water to remove all the salt from the works before drying the watch completely. Any salt left in the watch will combine with moisture in the air to rust metal components of the movement, case etc. Winding any mechanical watch tight may break the mainspring. If you can avoid it do not wind the watch hard. When adjusting the hands of your watch, move them in a clockwise direction only. Counter-clockwise adjustments may damage the movement. It is desirable to adjust the hands of your watch at the same time every day. An automatic or self-winding watch should be worn for at least 8 hours a day. It is a mechanical watch in which the mainspring is wound automatically as a result of natural motion of the wearer's arm, to provide energy to run the watch, making manual winding unnecessary. If you must adjust counter-clockwise make it for small adjustments only (i.e. for minutes, NOT hours). Be careful and gentle when adjusting the movement speed (faster or slower). Don't make sharp movements, and don't touch other components in the movement especially the pendulum mechanism. Every 2-3 years it is necessary to service and oil vintage watches. If the course of your watches is worsening and the accuracy of the reduction in the duration of the clock (autonomy) from one fully wound spring - it need a service. IF the watch is dirty - allow the watch to run down, don't wind it again until you have it serviced by a qualified watch repair expert. Dust will absorb and remove important lubricants and cause the movement pieces to wear down. To clean the case, dial and crystal you should use a cloth that does NOT leave fibers as these may get caught up in the movement. Check with your Watch repair expert to get an appropriate cloth. Keep your antiques watch away from magnets. Strong magnetic fields may affect the accuracy of your watch since some vintage watches were made with iron based components in the movement. Most Cases and Covers are fine components and will not handle abuse well. The watch should not be shaken, beaten, or stressed. Antique watches generally experience an error of up to 5-7 minutes a day. Any accuracy of +- 5 minutes is very good. Mechanical watch is not recommended to use for engage in extreme sports, and expose them to excessive vibration loads. Recoil force, which take on the clock, affect their reliability and precision. No matter how perfect was not anti-shock mechanism, there is always the chance of excessive load that details of the mechanism can not survive. Watch with calendar. It is not recommended to adjust, the date between 20.00 and 06.00, because at this time involved a mechanism for automatic adjustment date. Translation pointers calendars manually in this position arrows may damage the mechanism. Date changes should be made, relegating pre-clockwise to lower sector of the dial (for example, to position 6 (18.00) hours). Chronograph watches. In most cases, these watches contain the "start/stop" button and "reset" button. It is strongly recommended not to press the "reset" if the chronograph is running. Before you use the "Reset" button need to stop the chronograph by button "start/stop". Using the "reset" when running chronograph can damage the mechanism of most models of watches.
