    I have to admit, when I first started collecting (basically in a vacuum) this type of watch was very appealing (never bought one, though, because they were pretty expensive). I think this is the group to which these pieces are marketed. So, as collecting becomes more popular there are more and more customers for these fabricators.

    If the beginner sees 14 bidders on a watch, then it must be a very desirable watch (primary form of "research")! I'm gonna try to get it! I don't know what I'm doing but those 14 others do, so I'm with them!

    I would also like to show you a franken that uses a modern amphibian dial. First such I've seen. The "Scuba Dude" sells:

    VOSTOK Vintage KOMANDIRSKIE Soviet Officer MILITARY DIVER Watch !

    Yes, I agree, it's easy to go with others when you see plenty of people bidding on it.

    Anyway, the frankened 3017 Molnija here could be a good deal for somebody for the movement only. There was a non-running 3017 movement just sold at the 'bay for over $200.

    I've also noted those scuba dude dials on CCCP Vostoks. Looked a bit strange to me but I really can't tell whether they're real or not. Just started looking at the Boctok brand.

    Real as in "original" or not as well as the final price - in the end it's really for the buyer to decide whether it's worth it but I don't like items being represented as something they are not.

    $405 for this piece of ..... But you have the answer again: seller massacre and kill 3017 and ChK-28 because it's profitable.

    I don't think you're supposed to see the winding stem THIS clearly with an original dial, are you?



    the "zakaz mo" dial seems to have shrunk in the wash a bit

    A mild crown stem "skeleton" maybe?

    It looks like one of ruscamera's offerings. I've noticed that every time he relists something he raises the price.
