    Those are indeed not the same case, but the detail still applies: it should have brushed sides. Rechromed cases, from what I have seen, are commonly very smooth in appearance especially around corners, possibly due to overpolishing the base metal to remove the original chrome.
    tokareva and mroatman like this.

    Ok,so it would appear that I did in fact make a blunder by not getting that one. I should have listened to Mario.
    I thought he had not noticed an issue with the watch.

    No -- that one has the same 'sealant' case, but a different dial.

    Mario? Not noticing a detail? Impossible.

    Haha, I honestly didn't look further than the dial. I've found that sometimes it's often easier to buy the dial I want/need and if it hasn't the right case then buy a scrapper with the right case.

    It's not, but all three are early Pobedas, and all three were produced using a similar manufacturing process. The brushed sides are very typical of 1950s/1960s Soviet case designs.
