    I got lucky today again :)

    Hi again :) !

    I got really lucky today, gatting something special. Special, as you don't find a very nice Pobeda red 12 case and dial from the 40s :). The case is near-perfect (for it's age) and it's definitely pre-1950 as the back is chrome plated. Anyway, my 1948 Pobeda finally got an original case while this 1949 Pobeda a proper, nicely preserved dial :).
    Both were waiting for spare parts, as the 1949 Pobeda's dial was very, very poor, and the 1948 Pobeda had a different style Zim case.

    Pobeda 2-48 1MChZ

    Pobeda 1MChZ 2-49

    The set also contained a nice 1938 type I pocket watch. the hands are non-original, buy otherwise, very fine condition, with a well preserved dial (the paint doesn't go off this one :) ).

    1GChZ type1 4Q-1938

    So, good hunting I say :)

    And here it is, fresh from Russia, the Type-17 from 1940. poor condition, but i like it the way it is - you can see it's been through a lot and I think it will stay this way :)
