    I know this watch is franken. Because I franked it intentionally :)
    Thanks to the great service of the seller of my Komandirskie (their banner is on the top of the page), I was able to get a new Amphibian case the next working day and to have this gem (seems I have some chrome incompatibility - my skin destroys the plating too fast).

    Re: Franken of the week...

    If this is not frankencraft, I am missing a vital part in Soviet horology (which, on the other hand, is not that unlikely):



    Someone is on the bait though... If this is fake, the seller has gone through some trouble in making in look vintage. So I am in a state of confusion; why going through the trouble of faking something this unusual? Could it be real after all? Please educate me.

    I saw that.

    The movement is a typcial 3602 or the earlier yk-6. I'm guess they took the trouble to modify the pinions layout or something.

    I haven't seen any Soviet regulator dial/movement so far.

    Yes, but the fact that there is a bid despite the rather steep starting price ($199) may also be the seller trying to get the auction going. All he needs is one fish to take the bait.

    Well, there's a certain limit to restoring a watch, like cleaning the dial, re-luming the dials/hands etc.

    A fake dial is probably crossing the line for most of the collectors, as the watch is no longer authentic.
