    Re: Franken of the week...

    Ok people, I lost a Raketa watch and am trying desperately to find a reasonable one to buy to replace it that is exactly the same.

    Out of the two below, which is real???? (the first one has different writing on the front.

    Number 1:
    Orologio russo Raketa 24h a La Spezia - eBay Annunci

    Number 2:
    RAKETA 24 HOUR DIAL Gilded Case USSR Soviet Watch Ship 1980s RARE | eBay


    I think that 80$ is WAY too expensive, but if I have to pay that price, I want an authentic watch.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    They both look fine. The first one is Russian era, the second Soviet. This watch is not often frankened because while desirable it is fairly common.

    Fairly common, I can't find many floating around the interwebs..

    My dad bought mine in Milan (Italy) in the 90's for 45€ I can't believe I have to pay double for one nowadays.

    Rare, indeed! They were only made on Thursdays by volunteer workers of the People's Vodka Vostok Intake Army (provisional). I bet you didn't know I had that kind of information.....did you, Paul?
    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said "....I drank what?"
