There were three editions of such watch from Raketa factory. The first issue has six red dots on the dial representing the soviet stations and it was produced from 1971 until 1980. The second issue has seven red dots because in 1980 the soviets established 7th station Russkaya. The third edition also has seven dots but the quality of the dial is worse comparing to earlier versions.
