Red Star Solo, Hand Wind Mechanical Watch with Thick Dome Crystal #7982G-C

The Red Star Solo (single hand) watch features a Belarus 15-jewel, hand winding mechanical movement. Accuracy is rated at +25 to -5 seconds per day. The (double curve) dome crystal and dial design of the watch mimics a vintage style Japanese clock that appears in the opening of the T.V. show Saturday Night Live (clock is shown in images). Both the crystal and the dial are convex shaped. The solo hand is also convex to follow the contour of the dial.

The watch has a sand blasted stainless steel case that is 40mm in diameter and 15mm thick (7mm of the thickness is the dome crystal). The cream color dial features a single black hand to indicate both the hour and minutes. The time shown in the images is 10:10. The screw-in caseback features a rendering of St. Petersburg, Russia.

The military nato-style strap is a medium brown suede leather. The lug with is 20mm should you want to change out the strap at some point. Water resistance is 30 meters. Push-pull crown.

5 of 5 Beautifully idiosyncratic watch March 15, 2020
Reviewer: Ron Tierney from Essendon North , Victoria Australia  
I won't reiterate what other reviewers have said about the charms of this unusual timepiece. Those reviews should give you a pretty good idea as to whether this watch is for you. If the Red Star Solo speaks to you, go for it - you'll love it.

Great service as always from Long Island Watch, no issues with delivery even though my phone autofilled the wrong name on the order!

5 of 5 Be there when I get there. February 17, 2020
Reviewer: Steve C. from CA United States  
I enjoy the simplicity of this watch.  Being retired I don't feel any rush to be anywhere.  No need to synchronize to NIST time.  This is my 'be there when I get there' watch.  Love the feeling of free time.

Perhaps future editions could add the red star to the top of the dial to add a color accent.

5 of 5 A most amazing watch.... September 22, 2019
Reviewer: Rockinoldie from Richmond, VA United States  
I actually like this watch more than I thought I would.  It communicates a whole different relationship with time.  All of a sudden, accuracy to the second becomes unimportant because it's impossible!  Who knew?  Thanks!

5 of 5 Unique and fun January 11, 2019
Reviewer: Tom Sturges from Lincoln, NE United States  
This is a killer fun watch, super unique with the curved single hand, the fun case shape, the surprisingly comfy strap despite the astonishingly low price! The hand wind only design is good to use as a teachable thing for newer collectors and doesn’t risk damaging a truly rare or expensive piece, but the fun design and style also makes it very wearable as a practical watch. I wear mine a lot on weekends as a change of pace watch, something that can generate conversations with friends and be very chill in nature on time away from the workplace. Great product, thank you LongIslandWatch for carrying something like this, it’s very cool and I look forward to having this simple beauty for years to come.

5 of 5 Single hand Red Star beauty November 7, 2018
Reviewer: John Shifflett from Hialeah, FL United States  
Purchased this watch shortly after viewing Marc’s review on YouTube. So glad I did. This watch is so beautiful that I kept staring at it from different angles. The only thing that I didn’t like was the strap, I felt that it didn’t work with the watch so I switched it for a brown leather nato. Really makes the watch pop. The original green nato I found worked best on the SARB017.
Service was excellent and received the watch really quickly. Great company to do business with and a great watch to purchase and own.
