    Re: Franken of the week...

    Several weeks ago I posted a Volna from 1st MWF (attachment1). I thought that somebody had destroyed a good watch trying to embellish it. Yesterday I saw two more (attachment2), offered as spare parts. I wonder if somebody did not start producing the much sought-after Volna with calligraphic inscription on the dial and is selling now the first unsuccessful trials.

    Ouch! That is one of the reasons that puts me off looking into getting a Vostok Precision Class/Volna/Almaz.

    Good re-dial. Proper letter "Ш"

    I was going to post it, but I see I got beaten to it. What the hell isthat? Where did that dial come from?

    I'm not sure what I like best on this one, the minute hand half-dipped in red paint or the digits on the outside and inside rings that look as if they were written out by a 4-year-old with a crayon?
    Warmest regards,

    Terrible waste: the case and other bits could have been tastefully and sympathetically restored

    I like it! It has the same color scheme as my avatar, a Soviet poster from 1920s. Imagine it with longer hands, red parts of the hands going in the white section of the dial.
