    Re: Franken of the week...

    On the subject of fake Strelas, I eventually found some old photos of two fake/franken 3017 chronographs I bought in 2007. At the time I knew nothing about Russian watches, although I had owned a couple of Vostok Komandirskies bought not so far from Chistopol in 1999/2000. I'm a little ashamed to say I thought they were both genuine & I wore one of them proudly for a good 6 months I apologise for the very poor photos. I didn't realise the 3017 movement in the first had such a low serial number. It's a pity it was butchered, but perhaps the original dial was a wreck. We'll never know...

    Buyer obviously thought it was 100% original, but did no research. It's a heck of a lot of money to pay for a franken. There was plenty of time to Google Strela watches & look at photos, and of course find WUS. I wish I'd done that in 2007, but I only paid £65 & £80 for my frankens.

    I guess buyer is aware of Russian watches, Strelas in particular and its history. Otherwise, why would he search for it on ebay.
    Anyway, if he realizes what he bought soon enough he might return a watch and get a refund.

    Looking at what he just bought-he may not be that​ aware of Russian watches after all

    I'd hate to be him....stumbling across this thread....get that 'sinking feeling' in the pit of your stomach. That's what eBay does to you though. I'll never forget, first time I ever heard of eBay...dial up Internet on a 56 Kbps modem. I bought a NIB Rolex Submariner from Hong Kong for $135.00 plus shipping. I was so proud!! That was like 1997......I've never seen that watch to this very day. LOL. This poor bugger is gonna get his GBP 550.00 watch, but it may as well be a Timex!
