    This "wannabe chronograph" is a serious competitor.

    It's nice!
    What's the use of the other two push-buttons? If any....
    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)

    I have what i think is a fake Komandirskie.It is styled like a submariner(case) with a flat black dial with all numbers except three (date window) and 12( red star) below the star is a rendering of what appears to be a Vietnam era U.S soldier who seems to be carrying an M16 the crown does not screw down and the movement has no Russian style quickset date. The caseback is screwdown but not Vostok style and has a sunrise design on it with a serial number 592183 all writing and logos appear correct the bezel looks right but is unidirectional ratcheting.Movement is hand wind. The case may be SS but could also be chromed Brass .I cannot tell.The lume is even weaker than my other Komandirskies.No water resistance is claimed on the dial or caseback.--- Update the movement is Russian. My watch guy opened it and examined it .He is taking it into the city today to have an expert look at it .I may know it's provenance by friday. So to sum up it has russian movement and a Chinese case .The Caseback may be russian or soviet and the dial may be authentic.The watch is not very water resistant due to the non sealing crown. It is not junk but it is not a Kommandirskie.

    I just saw this Poljot Amphibian last night. I spent over an hour trying to find a similar styled face. I'm sure I've seen it on a .... Poljot Alarm... ?

    I don't think the Poljot alarms had date function. I just searched on Ebay and first dozen or so didn't. I, too, have been curious about the authenticity of that watch. Doesn't show up on Russian Times.

    I don't think its a franken but a variation of this one. Diver's Poljot Amphibia
    The dial is more similar to the alarms, but as well as the date function, I've not seen an alarm with lume dots towards the center of the dial like that.
