    That's easy enough to fix, comrade, just start your own thread.

    This one is for watches still for sale, especially the very rare and/or valuable ones.

    Have to agree. Kinda misses the point of this thread to post your own pieces.

    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) 👍

    Dear Comrades, Good advice! This thread inspired my old memory for beautiful Soviet watches (dials). They have slepted for too long on a shelf.

    Re: Admiring Russian/Soviet watches found online

    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:
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/ne...te-370819.html
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/se...r-3370666.html

    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.

    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

    Oh wow, I had never seen one of these before. Nothing on Mark Gordon's site, or that I can find in the forum history. The aging on the dial is too perfect for it to be a modern replica. I have no idea what to make of this. Maybe a woman's watch?

    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.
