    As for now, I don't buy much these days. But here are two I ordered recently and am anxiously anticipating....

    Looking forward to contributions from others 
    Seen one on ebay , in fact I think there was two . They are very tempting but saving my money for something else.

    Purchased earlier in the week. I'm currently waiting on this Slava. I love that quirky date window.

    Thanks!

    I found it on this random website I had never seen before: Some Time Ago. I don't remember how I ended up there, but I'm glad I did.

    So funny! I had been watching this one on the local Estonian auction page for a looooong time:

    https://osta-ee.postimees.ee/index.p...3&_src=desktop

    Dial and hands look mint, and the caseback is pretty dang rare. But like you, it would have only been a parts watch for me. I'm glad it finally found a good home, and hope you got it for less than €50.

    Photos when your restoration is complete!

    I'd made quite a few offers over a very long time, I figured I would wear him down eventually but he didn't want to budge. We eventually settled on €50 (down from the original €80), which too be honest was still a little too much but the condition and rarity was too good to pass up.

    Re: What did you buy today?

    I've never understood if Slava was fully out of business or not. There's a shop in Moscow, which has a website (slava.su), that seems to be the official "Slava" store and even has new models using the 2427/2428 movements coming out still, I'm not sure if the movements are being made somewhere, or if they just have a very large stock from back in the day.

    Regardless I decided to try out a new Slava that's packing a 2427, not the best deal on the planet, but it looks like the quality is a bit better than the last new one I bought a few years back.

    If you haven't seen that website before check it out, lots of interesting models from Russian companies (many are Japanese quartz, but that's how the industry is nowadays...).

    Not sure about the second hand and the crystal needs replacing with something higher but this one went for a song:
