Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day


Circa 1980's, Molnija, Chemical Warrior

For my Wednesday WOTD, I'm keeping it Russian, opting for the Molnija Watch, Chemical Warrior. This was another one of those love-at-first-sight timepieces, as I was literally thunderstruck by the presentation on this dial!


I didn't think I could love this watch anymore, but the addition of the Bund strap, gives this timepiece even more of a military personality. The nubuck leather on the strap, is super soft and supple, leading to an ultra-comfortable feel on the wrist. I can only imagine how butter this strap will feel, once it has been completely broken-in.


Colors abound in this dial, and an abundance of colors in a timepiece, always put me in my happy place. The Chemical Warrior is just such a timepiece. Complementing the dial and strap colors, is a beaded bracelet, crafted by Dorsal Bracelet Company. The accessory, affording a perfect match to the Brown and Yellow tones prominent within the strap.
