    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.

    I reserve comment (hatred, jealousy, desire to kill) until mine arrives.

    By the way, notice the slight font differences on the dial. My numbers are more blocky and squarish (especially 3 and 9), whereas yours are nicely rounded. Wonder which came first.

    We'll have to compare date stamps upon arrival....

    Re: What did you buy today?

    This week I bought my first three mechanical watches. 2 of them belong in this forum:

    Raketa 24h with world cities - I taught myself how to read Cyrillic and Greek letters in high school, and still derive a special joy from deciphering recognisable words
    Attachment 12538319


    A Raketa Big Zero - when researching the 24h watch, I came across this model and fell in love with the avantgardist aesthetic and, well, the Big Zero

    Now I just need to wait for these 2 to make it to my mail box. Hopefully it won't take much longer than a month. Can't wait!

    I have to find an original crown I guess, but at less than 3 euros I think I didn't "splurge" :) (I had to search that in the dictionary, by the way #mroatman)

    I guess all my GRE studying paid off :)

    Technically speaking, you'll also need an hour hand in order to absolutely authentic. But a great price indeed.

    Hmmm, indeed... damn, you've ruined my day with you sharp eye ... :)
    Joke aside, thank you so much for your precious input, I'll see if it's worth the hassle or it will make it to the parts bin :)
    Beautiful watch by the way, congratulations to both of you!

    P.S. Iím not a native English speaker, so itís not your GRE, Iím just the dumb here :)
