    A Strela white dial of about 40-50 years ago should show its age.

    When the fakers get the redials 100% right we will fail to spot them as fakes...

    Exactly - I'm waiting for a reputable seller to offer a nice Strela.

    Here's a watch I've recently purchased on ebay. I wish i had done more research before bidding, since it turns out this might be a recombination of three different Raketa watches.




    apparently borrowing the case and (hopefully) the movement from this:



    the dial and second hand from this:



    and the hour and minute hands from this one:

    I don't get it - which is the second hand and which is the minute?

    rare Volna from 1st and 2MWF

    The second Volna I introduced three weeks ago, I bought it recently and still think it might be an old franken, it has small signature on the inner side of the back cover from the watchmaker who repaired it in 1980s and maybe renovated the inscription with ready-made stamps. The first one seems newer. I seriously consider buying it, to have a set. Sellers' photos.

    Since Volna, Almaz and particularly Vostok Precision/Precision Class are desirable these days, I feel the proportion of those which are not straight might be higher than average; there might be a need for a definitive article on them!

    I didn't get the idea to have 1MChZ and 2MChZ logos on a ChChZ/Vostok watch...

    They are so strange, never seen before, that they SHOULD be real...
    Russian watches were designed to be maintained in the field by an agricultural worker using nothing but a hammer, a sickle, and some tractor grease... (phd)
