    Re: Before & After ✨

    Hi all, I have been part of this fraternity for a while now, im always amazed and thankful for all the advice and help I receive......

    so this is just a huge thank you to Dash (mroatman) for the help he gave me to bring back a couple of classics to original order…..

    He used his contacts to source the below parts, and I am very grateful…..they are my two prized timepeices!!!



    First up is a Poljot 1960s era ‘Strela’ which had a cracked acrylic crystal by the 6 o’clock position…..

    Second is an 1980s era ‘Okeah’ which had an incorrect chronograph second hand and a worn Chronograph minute hand…..

    @scouser , I love the Okeah. It's a bit out of my reach price wise. They're beautiful pieces. Well done!

    Re: Before & After ✨

    My first PRIM auto. Not perfect, but quite decent restoration. Opened, polished and cleaned inside out, second hand repainted.
    Couple of spots remained, some scrathes too, but I love it. What surprised me, this a good size watch (37x40mm) and 20mm between lugs.
    When I find a good band for it I will actually wear it :)

    Re: Before & After ✨

    This came with the prim, non working. Don't collect pocket watches, added it just for the fun (cheap, of course).
    Mainspring barrel section cleaning and it works like a charm now. The crack in the crystal is beyond repair, but it's the original one, so I'll keep it on for now.

    This is one of two non working Thiels I got some time ago. Thanks to comrade Sekondtime for the advice back then!
    I got one of them working with near quartz accuracy (!!!). Almost every part of it has signs of time and wear, but (besides cleaning) I'll leave it tha way it is.

    Anyway. Didn't have much time for treasure hunting, but still managed to sneak in an antique shop. Very nice place, and the owner and his daughter (not sure) were very pleasant people. Of all the watches they showed me I picked the worse looking, cheapest and non working ones. Well, one was working. Dated 50, 52 and 54.

    They are all working now, and one needs a crystal replacement. These pobedas are such an addiction.

    Those look great Ivan. I especially like the white dial with blue hands.
