    Re: Franken of the week...

    Oooo yes I was a very naughty boy back in the day, still I turned out alright with a bit o' army service and any fire left in me was put out by two amazing daughters and grandchildren and I am hoping my eldest grandson is gonna be a bit circumspect cos I don't want to be a great grandfather just yet and he's getting in the zone for noticing the girls O.o

    The Specials of course were my all time favourites, they shot the video of Ghost Town all over Deptford and Bermondsey and I irritate my girls when I point out Gary Oldman's house or the bit just round the corner where Michael Caine grew up or tell tall tales of derring do in the pubs and clubs along Surrey Docks and then my girls throw stuff at me to shut me up :) My eldest I love winding her up as she was born in Watford (pub opposite the hospital was owned by a die hard Millwall bloke) and I say to her about her being a pretend Londoner and she gets right cross. She's got one of my USSR ladies Sekonda's and I suspect she might be getting the watch bug as she has six of 'em outta me. My youngest takes care of the other USSR Sekonda and she's got a couple nice pieces.

    Dunno what it is with ladies watches but I have a shoe box of the damned things I pick up in broken job lots and fixed up, I tried giving them to a local food bank, local charity shop, if people visit they go away with one or two looking a little confused, all me neighbours pretend to be out if I knock on the door as when I sees them I say "hold on, got something for you" and slap a couple quartz pieces in their hands.

    No doubt that was a barn find, one lady owner, prototype owned by Mother Theresa and privately blessed by the gods and serviced by the spirits of every Rolex master watchmaker that lived and died...?

    I gotta say that piece looks grim.

    I suspect my Komandirskie I just got is a franken, its in an Amphibia case, it has the amphibia case back, mag shield and ringed crystal but the dial and workings of a Komandirskie albeit an unusual Komandirskie dial with the grey painted submarine below the centre. The hands are like brand new with actually very good lume but the lume dots are very poor glow. It does look actually quite a nice Kom and maybe I will unfranken it if I get a spare movement and put the Kom stuff into a proper Komandirskie case.

    The Slava amateurs seem to take a different approach than the Raketa ones.
