    ​I'm afraid one day I will die and my wife will sell my watches for what I told her I paid for them.

    Re: What did you buy today?

    I bought this non working Raketa watch a few weeks ago for the brass dial with raised numbers, thinking I was going to patina the dial and fit it in a Vostok. But the dial was 33.5mm and shaving it down to 28.5mm to fit would've eaten into the numbers. So, with apologies to the purists, last night I put the dial in an automatic Stürhling whose case I loved. Pretty happy with the result. Name:  IMG_0062.JPG

    Nice catch!
    The second watch from the top is gorgeous. And are those blued hands?
    May I ask the brand?

    Yes, they are blued hands. The brand is Pobeda (or "Victory" in Russian). This particular model was made at the ZIM watch factory in Samara. This watch is not rare, but difficult to find in good condition. I've been looking for a very long time.

    You can see it in the 1953 export catalog:

    In fact, it is actually on the cover of said catalog.
