    Yes, I saw that, but I believe there are several Pobeda designs that were made by both factories (1stM and Petrodvoretz). If so, finding several examples made by 1stM doesn't rule out others being made by Petrodvoretz. The Wikipedia page on "Watch" says the Pobeda worn by Cernuchka was from Petrodvoretz, but cites to the book that tells the story without specifying the origin of the watch.

    Waooo.... just discoreved that very informative post written by Comrade Arizone . What a joy to read !!

    Bored of his Pobeda watch that he was awarded while in the military, and considering the watch's resilience to all his abuse including swimming with it, he strapped it to the dog hoping he'd never see it again.


    If the above is accurate , Pobeda could be «awarded» during service in the military ?
    Does anybody as any further info about this practice ?

    A quick search on Yandex has revealed these Petrodvorets Pobedas.

    Are these examples what you are looking for?

    Re: The Actual Very First Watch In Space

    From the Russian site Back in the USSR:

    "There is evidence that in 1949 the Penza factory gave the production of K-26 and Pobeda to Chistopol (Chistopol Watch Factory) and Kuibyshev (ZiM, Maslennikov Factory), and the First Watch Factory helped establish the production of Pobeda watches on the Second Moscow and Petrodvorets watch enterprises (until 1954, the latter was called the First State Factory of Precise Technical Stones, or TTK-1)."

    I understand. All examples of the Hermetic Pobeda specifically that I have seen had the 1MWF logo. I welcome any counter examples, assuming they're not franken movements, but I believe it is more likely the other factories had their own unique models. Perhaps the catalogs make reference to the factories, but that I will have to double check.

    About how much can someone expect to pay for an example as nice as those Luis posted above?

    Re: The Actual Very First Watch In Space

    I've lurked this thread for months after reading about this watch's story
    and now I felt I needed to make an account just to share my most recent find:

    Name:  il_794xN.1955661615_dx1v.jpg

    Seems to be in good condition, all things considered.
    It was a no-brainer purchase. Bought it for around $105 and now it's on it's way to me. :D
