Comments about the data

open face calibre
Breguet hairspring
if ever, then also listed as Saljut, Salyut), or yk-6
The few available sources agree only upon Lip as origin. Varying origin calibres are mentioned, only the Lip 43.2 not, although it is the only one with matching dimesions and layout.
Since catalog data are not available, they were taken from the Lip 43.2 as far as available. But some parts were modified after adopting the calibre from Lip.

Example, year: signature; shock device
ca. 1955: 328626, ZIM, 15 Kamnei (15 jewels)
