    Re: What did you buy today?

    Thank you, any estimation regarding the production time period? Are there any such informations on the mechanism, if I manage to open the back cover? The blue one is working just fine and after thourough (exterior) cleaning turns out to be a pleasant watch, I especially like the metal bracelet that seems to be original. The second one intrigues me, the dial is very used but has beautiful blue hands, I can set the time, it kicks on but stops very quickly and I just can rewind it a slight bit -> does any one know what particular model is this and if is it worth trying to restore it?

    As said, these are both Pobedas powered by ZIM 2602 movements. The resale value for these is almost zero, but the sentimental value is obviously high. Since the second one ticks, it sounds like it just needs a regular service, which can run between $5-500+ depending on where you live.

    Both models look to be from the 1980s. You could try to find them (or similar) in this 1983 ZIM catalog: https://www.dropbox.com/s/s41xrjd27j...1048;.pdf?dl=0


    Edit: Found the second one, the blue hands are replacements.

    Thank you very much, highly appreciated, as well as your prodigious contribution to this forum

    P.S. You may be right of course, but based on the (rather limited) facts of the personal history, I'm skeptical some one might have modified it, would never really know I guess, it's a great part of the charm of these pieces...

    Liahim - beautiful. However, Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen's ship was a Vostok!

    The shipping gods have been appeased. Loving all the little details such as the wings logo etched onto the crown. Proof that ebay still has bargains!
