Plenty of folks have their own threads dedicated to their collections. Why not start your own, soviet? As many watches as you have, I think a dedicated thread would be much more appropriate (and enjoyable) 👍
Here is a very rare second-generation Slava Transistor with a date complication, also with what I believe to be the original integral bracelet, currently up for auction. Digging through old threads, I've only found Lucidor and Mark Gordon who have/had one of these. I'm sure I've seen a picture on the forum of someone with 3-4 of these, but I cannot remember where!
Here are two threads on these:
In any case, I've never seen one for sale before!
I do own 3 of these, there are three different versions: steel case, gold plated, & faceted crystal). It looks like the auction watch is not working unfortunately. All my examples are operational.
Whats that Comrades'? its a joke, franken or Unicorn...?

I would say fake. I can't think of a Vostok movement that would fit in this frame. This is a ladies watch.
My guess it's similar to this one
and the movement this one
I did manage to find one of these on eBay (closed listing) with some additional photos. I think it may be the same watch, in fact? Were you the buyer?
It very strongly reminds me of my Zvezda; the way the caseback has a cut-out for a very Zvezda-like movement. The lack of any finishing on the movement also strikes me as very Soviet, although I don't recognize it, and to my knowledge, Chistopol never made one of these smaller, rectangular movements.
In any case, great find! Thanks for sharing!
Well, I don't believe it. This (as it turns out) is a famous Orfina rocket design. There's the above shown dial design:
Good try, but this Vostok is so unique that the logical answer, for me, is the obvious one.
