    The buyer being conned is sad. But the worst part of this story is that this deal will encourage the sellers to continue their dirty work. More historical watches will be slaughtered on the altar of quick bucks.

    How's this Soviet WWII NAVY VMF Captain's Watch Chronograph | eBay for a frankenwatch? Said to be from the 40's or fifties... sure, just check the serial number in the movement. Original dial - yeah, that's it.

    Must have a lawyer on retainer! Everything he says is technically true in some sense. Is that an old strela movement? What a shame! You can almost smell the ink drying on the dial!

    That's not a Strela. This time, the guy slaughtered a Molnija 3017 pocket chronograph.

    The number of Strela, Molnija 3017, and ChK-28 chronographs (not just ordinary Molnija 3602) that have been massacred by those guys is extremely high. I bet that almost half of ChK-28 pocket chronographs have been killed to make that stuff.

    The picture of Harrison Ford dressed like a Naval Officer in the item's description really adds to the authentic Soviet military vintage, for me.

    This particular vendor is well known here as a serial murderer of watches, and creative writer of eBay descriptions.

    Another, this time an OKEAH... USSR vintage watch chronograph Ocean okean | eBay "Everything original and definitely aren't built-up from several parts". Sure, P3133 chrono bridge "23 JEWELS" and one-piece reset lever in an OKEAH w/original parts. What a chance to own a piece of Russian watch history - yours for only $695.

    Why you folks keep saying "slaughtered", "butchered" etc like those watches were in decent condition prior to the "massacring", when infact the ones that get redialed mostly have completely ruined dials, hands etc. The bad thing that these pieces are advertised as genuine and original, yes, undoubtedly.

    Here's nice Okean

    Fake dial fake hands ... An other 3017 sacrified to make more money. This seller is the king of this kind of fantasy watches.

    But people like it .....
