    Re: Franken of the week...

    I saw the other pictures from that auction, I think it's ok.

    If you look at this: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/ins...ver-75583.html, you can see the mounting screws for the Molnija movement is at 2 and 8 o'clock.

    Here's my Zlatoust Divers for your reference.





    There's 1 more on the bay with a very high BIN price as it's NOS with papers.



    Parting with 30+ of my prized Soviet pieces over at sales corner.

    This watch is currently being listed by a Forum member (you know who, with the usual white carpet as scenario) on Ebay USA, item n:140454602933, it has already 4 bids on it, current bid is at 43.78 USD. IMHO I think this watch is a cheap fake made by the Chinese collectivity. I don`t recall VOSTOK making komandirskies with quartz movement... Or Am I wrong??
    This must be a joke, If this model existed or was supplied by the factory, it would be mechanical for sure, moreover, the caseback is snap on, similar to other Chinese fakes.

    It is quite well known that the commemorative watches for the opening of McDonald's in Moscow were Komandirskie "homages", Vostok had nothing to do with them. I still do not know why Vostok did not say a few words regarding these when they were distributed.

    OK, After posting a real Zlatoust diver as a Franken, I'm here to redeem myself. While the following is a completely fake Vostok, someone must have liked it, as it looks like it's been worn for quite a while!

    But doesn't it look good?
    That Neptune bezel is the best around and would set off any Amphibia well. I wish I could get one from Vostok.

    I'm cobaltblue aka solar-city on ebay. I have to defend the watch, the dial and case are correct together, I only changed the bezel and back because they were scratched badly, so I don't think I've frankenized the watch. And like robbra says 'doesn't it look good'
