Based on Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta, this model as been russified. Don't get me wrong, quality and long lasting usability will be met if you take care of the camera, giving it a little CLA every year of so. Some will tell you not to change the speed when the shutter is cocked but this still a debate, as it is written in the user manual then I play the safe side. Also, don't store the camera for a long time with the shutter cocked as you put excessive pressure on the mechanics.
This is another proof that russifying a camera doesn't mean making a cheapeer copy and having one of the in your hand will give you such proof. The engineer have simply made the camera simpler to ise
