    Re: Before & After ✨

    Thanks Secontime, haha an Odessa! Yes, I believe it's the same model as Dashiell's. The lume's gone brown with age.
    Secondtime, actually we disscussed it year ago, in a thread that sparked my first copper pobeda experiment, and there's the catalogue entry that Dash posted
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/cl...4709471-2.html
    This experiment is throwback to this disscussion. Comrade kinaed also showed a nice example, so when I saw it for $5, my hands got itchy.
    I just remembered that about the same time I posted a set of hands like these to a comrade from the forum for his pobeda restoration. He hasn't been active in the forum since then, and I sencerely hope everything is good with him. Would love to see his restoration.
    I plan eventually painting the hands with instant coffee brown lume, to match the dots. So it's to be continued ...

    Re: Before & After ✨

    Since my wife left for her BMC training in Italy in the morning, I've been sitting alone at home with nothing to do. Also it's Sunday.
    I was going through my pobeda spares, and find out there's enough spare stuff to restore one complete watch. Chose this one, dated 3-55, as it had the best preserved dial.
    It happened so spontaneous, that I took no "before" pictures. Sorry bout that.

    Also found another 3-55 dated movement with a healthy ballance, but with broken second hand pin, so I used that. Also found a seconds hand (hope its the right one), and a cool mushroom crown.

    I have same watch and also the dial may use some cleaning. But somehow each time I think about cleaning it I end up not doing it. I like the dirty look on this one 🙂

    But you did a nice job making it look much cleaner. I will think again about doing same 🙂

    It's such a good-looking watch, and your efforts made it look fantastic!
