    Can you explain to us mortals the difference? If there is a size difference than it is easy to check. Also, is it possible it is from the Transition time?

    Here's the forum thread on the 270 case:https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/my...s-2505754.html the 470 case is Soviet and can easily be found in the usual catalogues and is of quite a different shape....

    But I've not seen a 270 with a Soviet-era passport as yet, unless another comrade has one

    Thanks. Yes, 270 case.

    Btw, this is what the watch looks now. Should I go for a super beater look? 🙂. Even with the cracks all over the watch looks Ok in my opinion. I had ordered a few crystals already. Will see in a month when I get them 🙂

    No it needs a new crystal, it would look even better with a little paint on the bezel... (a type not often seen btw)

    Tried the paint. Did not like it. My red looks pink and black is reddish 🙂. I have a 50 year old hands staining set. Removed the paint. Maybe will do it later with something else. Anyway, order for 3 crystals is placed. Thanks for your moral support team!

    Ha, ha! That's funny...a Russian spill his vodka?!

    Sorry, totally my fault ..... I knew the case number ended on 70, sadly I was only a few hundred off ......

    Restored Elektronika 59B.

    Some time ago, I received this rare watch for repair / restore. The mechanical part of this watch was in non working condition. The electronic part worked, but there were problems with the indication.
    After repair with this watch everything is fine. The mechanical and electronic parts work great. As far as possible, was refreshed appearance.

    Like all of your restorations, this one looks fantastic. I do not think I have ever seen that dial before! It looks like 24 hour on the digital. That is really useful! I have to admit, your work has got me looking at Soviet quartz movements in an entirely different way. They are very stylish. Thank you for sharing.

    Second that! I have a few hundreds of mechanicals. Now started alarms. Maybe quartz will be next 🙂
