    PILOT AIR RECONNAISSANCE SPY RUSSIA MILITARY MINT WATCH


    This listing is the longest listing I have ever seen on ebay. I copied the listing into a word document and did a word count it was 5209 words long. The paragraph that acually describes the watch was only 215 words.
    I'm a watchbreaker not a watchmaker.

    Splendid! This matches the best achievements of trustedboy and collectibles.ua, and maybe in 50 years will be listed as 'folk art, Eastern Europe, early 21st century' in some museum.

    To me the best frankens always been WWII period watches with German motifs. I mean seriously - can you imagine Russian watch factories making a pilot watch with German Luftwaffe planes or with Panther/Tiger/U-Boat logos?

    That is just historically impossible... Who in his right mind buys such watches?

    Like a Pobeda with Waffen SS markings then...

    But to the Russian people who suffered greatly during WWII, these things are just in the worst possible taste.

    "Pobeda" means "Vistory" in Russian, specifically victory over Germany - that brand was established shortly after 1945 to commemorate Germany's defeat.

    Besides bad taste - a Pobeda watch with German markings is impossible historically.

    My point exactly, and I have seen those being offered!

    So, how is the date indicated - with the missing Kocmoc date hand or using the date window at 12:00?
