    What a gorgeous pulsometer! Man, I've been hunting for these in a good condition, everything that has shown up on eBay was wrecked. A pristine and beautiful piece! Congrats!

    I'd try it out on a red rubber strap:

    Or white with red accent, surely would look nice:

    Many thanks to armanh for his assistance in the matter of the Slava. What a gent!

    Apologies in advance for Mr Blurrypic's photos. He was a cheap and available photographer.
    It's been a very good day on the watch front for me. I got home from work to find two little parcels waiting for me. Within seconds they were torn to shreds and the delights inside revealed.

    Now I'm not entirely certain that either of those boxes belong to those watches but I seem to have caught a bit of a bug for boxes since buying a Ratnik in a very unassuming but still very cool ink stamped cardboard container.

    My first copper dial Pobeda! It's generally in pretty good nick and makes a lovely little noise as it goes about its business. Now as I understand it, 2MChZ became Slava in 1958. Was it right at the beginning of the year or is the 1-58 stamp correct?

    The strap on the Raketa is absolutely awful but cool in an end of empire sort of way, perhaps a reflection of the state of things in the Soviet Union at the time? It's very thin and feels almost like those cheap belts made of compressed scrap textiles. The buckle is also a bit of a pain to fasten. Not sure what those papers in the box are for, really.

    If you squint you can kind of make out that this is a picture of a watch movement.

    All in all, a good day. Just have to wait for the quartzes to arrive!

    Both look great. I've no idea about the boxes but they are a nice looking bonus. Congratulations.

    A Mr Blurrycam special. I've cleaned the picture up as much as I can.

    Wonderful Pobeda, just a beautiful face. 2MWF wasn't renamed "Slava" until 1964, so the date is accurate. (An update to the 2MWF logo occurred in 1958 -- that may be what you're referencing.)

    The papers iares likely the "Passport" (aka documents) to prove the validity of this particular watch. Don't throw them out. They're quite valuable to most collectors.

    See what I can do when I fit the new battery which apparently it needs.
