    Great piece of history!
    I love these old Pobedas and I think I might even have a pretty good example of that one at home!
    I am always on the look out for these!

    Excellent information. Congratulations for your work.

    I own a Sturmanskie Gagarin watch, that even not being the first watch that flew off from earth gravity, I will keep loving it.

    I actually found another one of these Pobeda "sealant" models in my parts stash today. As there seems to be renewed interest in this watch, keeping it just for parts doesn't seem fair, so if any comrade is interested in buying it, please let me know. I can't remember how much I paid for it originally, but it couldn't have been more than €30 or so. It's dated 1954.

    The movement will need work, so it would be best if it went to a home that could give it a little love.

    From memory I think it was USD$75.00 plus shipping.

    That's exactly what I paid for mine. BTW, Krisztiswatches shipped it FedEx for $10, so I might actually get it in a couple days (tracking says the 20th). Why don't all sellers do that?

    I seriously considered the one on etsy,but when I blew the pic up the case looked strange ,like it had been ground down and re plated. Did I make a mistake not getting it? Is this the way they were made, seems rather crude looking.

    This is normal. But often, cases are in poor condition and the brushing is obscured.

    I admit I couldn't help but purchase one myself after making my discovery. This was the nicest one on Ebay at the time and it just arrived yesterday. As is tradition it was labeled as serviced but when it arrived its crown was spinning freely; the ratchet wheel was not fully seated. Working fine since, however.
