    It looks just like they redialed a normal Strela.... the raised numerals are strela like and not movado like

    They probably did the subdials as well.

    Has some missing parts in the movement... if any of us here rescue it I have parts that could get this going and some dials (but only later ones)

    I may bid if it goes cheap but I doubt it with that name on it... and not working properly..!

    But, look at the sub dial, I got to give it to them for their creativity..

    Seller is a "professional re-dialer"

    Attention collectors!
    Unique technique for your watch antique!
    Send me your broken dial and receive it back repainted and fully restored. New cover looks like white porcelain. Chips and scratches disappear completely. Upon your request I will make another font and another inscription. The cost is $25 US per dial, money back guaranteed if you are not satisfied.

    Bought this one on eBay.
    Probably a redial, right?

    I hate to break the news, but it seems to be a re-dial. Look at the hour markers at 2,4,8,10 and compare it with the Poljot Strela from https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=318550.

    The chronograph seconds hand is also incorrect for that dial but would perhaps be correct for a paddle hands Poljot/Sekonda. If you bough that watch from who I thought you did (tr...), he has quite a reputation for making watches from various parts to sell them as "100% original". Depending on what was stated in the ad, you could maybe ask for refund.

    Has anyone seen the ebay auctions by a certain jacd0023 on a certain Bay of the e variety? Not exactly franken, perhaps, but all the dials seem to have had the manufacturer's logo (eg "Raketa") re-painted rather obviously. Shame, as there are some otherwise nice pieces there.

    It looks like he had completely cleaned all the dial, and afterwards re-painted by hand not only the logo, but also minute marks. Often also "Sdelano b CCCP" has disappeared.
