    Hope I did alright.

    Hello, Russian Watch lovers. I just purchased this watch with Ebay buy it now. According to Juri's book on Russian wrist watches it is a rare model. If anyone knows anything about this watch, please let me know. I paid a total of $70, do you think this is a good buy? Best Regards.

    Not sure that the lume dot on the bezel is original....usually they are domed shape. I may be incorrect about this, but it looks like new lume to me. Pictures of the back and of the 'innards' will help a lot! The thing is, do you like it? That's always the main question to me..., if it is NOT all original are you going to be terribly disappointed? My interests are varied, and like all the rest of the guys and gals on here.... I focus on a few specifics (mainly military oriented). I know, as usual, that the answer will lie with one of the great folks here!! We do need more pics, though. Personally, I like it, it looks clean and I have always liked that dial design! Either way, congrats! I like it!

    Wow! That really appears to be in good condition, Bobby! Yeah, I like that one. It's a 470, nuff said. I think the lume dot looks fine, just so new that it's a different look. The black second hand is a little different but....price is okay for what you're getting, in my opinion.

    Cheers!

    Yeah, Paul, it's a good looker in awesome shape! You are probably right, the lume dot may be just so new looking that it's got me thinking that it's not original...that's why I leave the definitive decisions up to the experts since I don't collect vintage Amphibians or Antimagnetics.

    Thanks for the replying guys. Yes, I really do like that dial, it's so unique and clean. I do, however, have some concern about the second hand being black, as the "Russian Wristwatch" book displays a red second hand.

    The lume dot and over-all condition of the bezel is what really peaked my interest, as it seems to be near excellent. Now the wait for it to arrive from Russian to the southern Oregon coast!

    I have some doubts about lume dot on the bezel, hands, and lume dots on the dial.

    I agree...

    Hands are very strange... and second hand not only for the black color...

    Just compare the distance between the center of hands and the small circle of the second hand...
