A better image of my recently purchased 17 Jewel Sturmankie 'Gagarin'. This is the one with the hand-engraved back.
As you can see the acrylic glass is obscuring the minute markers so I hope to get that changed. Maybe repaint the second hand... Funny how the red star and 12 marker faded on these 17 Jewel versions, possibly from the Radium paint? I wonder has anyone ever managed to 'restore' one of these by repainting them...I wouldn't trust myself to do it but could a watchmaker??
