TTK-1... Five magic letters for a Soviet watches collector. Engraved on movement, marked on dial under index 6.

The story of brand Pobeda is explained here : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pobeda_%28watch%29

But, There is a small inaccuracy in the list of plants that produced Pobeda watches. The first name of Petrodvorets Watch Factory (near Leningrad) was "Первый Государственный завод точных технических камней" 1st State Precision Jewel Cutting Factory (ТТК-1).

During 1954 (1955 ?), the brand TTK-1 stopped being used by the factory, when the "automated assembling conveyor" was completely in production. Before, a TTK-1 was assembled from A to Z by a single worker, as explained in this Raketa video : www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=_Goy2...

A big thanks to my compatriot Jacques von Polier
