Almost a year ago, before discovering the finer points of Franken-spotting I purchased this "cool-looking" Russian watch. A Sturmanskie Gagarin! ... for $45
Now, I'm finally getting around to examining some of my earlier purchases and low and behold if I didn't nab a franken or two! Surprise Surprise.
I believe this one is certainly a mixture of things, some mismatched crusty old hands, a common Pobeda case ... perhaps a reprint fake dial?
When I received this one, the movement was rattling around all loose inside the case. Upon opening up the back, a simple tweak of those 4 clamps added the desired pressure to keep the movement secure.
Anyway,...I'd be very interested in your opinions on what's what.
Where are all the bits and pieces from,... those hands, strange second hand, crown, dial .... is the movement at least decent with all the correct parts?
