I tend to agree with Terrence. We ordered some Russian night vision
glasses from Harborfreitght and found them to be totally useless. They
never worked, and we sent them back for replacement and the replacement
didn't work. Very poor quality.

Re: Stop watches/Pocket watch






A bit of a warning. One of our sons brought back a Russian-made watch
from a student trip to the USSR. Like those listed below, it was quite
inexpensive - a good buy until it soon stopped working. Our local jeweler
immediately told him not to bother getting it fixed, opened it up, and
showed him the dirt and other gross imperfections in the watch.

Admittedly, this was several years ago. But I am not aware of a boost in
the reputation of Russian watches. So, although $15 isn't much, you might
be getting exactly what you pay for....

I was looking through my Harbor Freight catalog and came across a Russian
made 16 Jewel Stopwatch ($14.99)

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=90713

and a 18 Jewel Russian Pocket watch ($29.99)

These would probably work for the cons of Ang mom demo talked about
earlier. dave
