    This watch stems from two nice watches, so now it's a "doubly nice" watch. So, why am I so sad, for the old original watches?

    Hmmm, I don't think this post classified as a Franken of the week but it's too much !



    I saw this listed with a starting bid of $500 and there's 1 bid within the first hour (bidder has 0 feedback)!



    I got mine at a tenth of that price !

    I hope that $500 watch is solid gold. And lots of it.

    It is plausible. The last of the crab cases were still being used when 1st Moscow started using Poljot as an export brand, which was a couple of years before they adopted it as their domestic brands as well. So there are export Kirovskie, Rodina and Sportivnie watches all labelled Poljot.

    OK, I can see now that the raised batons on the dial are an unlikely feature when combined with the crab chapter ring.

    Right. It's also incredibly ugly

    Quite an accomplishment - as Vaurien pointed out: take 2 very nice watches and make 1 ugly one.
