    AM I MISSING SOMETHING HERE? NON-ITALIAN JOB VOSJOT

    Can an expert tell me if this Ruscamera offering (250975727401) on the Bay is for real?

    The watch and the offering are for real alright ...

    The authenticity of the watch on the other hand is another thing ...it's a random combination of dial, case and hands from two different watches

    I am surprised the dealer didn't mention that. Gotta say it is a conversation starter!
    Thanks for the input, 10 ATM.

    Which 2 watches did you have in mind? I presume this one -

    plus...what?

    To my eye the hands don't work with the dail but NOS Vostok 3133 chronographs fetch high prices so why would someone butcher one to make a franken? As usual, I'm not 100% convinced that because no-one in the forum has seen one before means it was never legitimately produced under some arrangement between Vostok and who knows who.

    "The watch is made by Moscow watchmaker": with 12 million inhabitants, it is probably really made by a Moscow watchmaker!

    There are probably no wrong allegations in the description! That the watch as it now looks like was made (i.e. put together) is beyond any doubt!

    I thought it was Poljot, but I may be wrong....
    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said "....I drank what?"
