    Sorry, but i have to disagree...

    IMHO, a watch with original parts (in this case, all parts are Vostok), but with a wrong combination of these parts (as i mentioned and you have now confirmed) = franken !!!

    Regardless of aesthetically it look better or worse...

    Good luck on sale !

    Might be a good idea to mention that in the Ad, which currently suggests that it's an original Soviet watch, even though it contains post-soviet parts.

    We've seen these phony Raketas before, from the same clowns who litter eBay with fake Aviators. You gotta love this sales technique in the second photo, though. I understand wanting to show off the lume (a red flag as recent Raketas don't have lumed dials), but shouldn't the hands glow as brightly as the numbers? What good are bright numbers when you can't see the hands?!!?

    While not explicitly related to Russian watches, I thought you would be amused with this sign that I recently saw on a trip to Turkey. In Turkey, fake watches are sold openly. But genuine fake watches? As opposed to what? The fake fake watches? At least the seller is honest about his products. I didn't spot any Russian pieces, only high end Swiss brands and fashion brands.

    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)
