    I wish I knew what was wrong with that picture. The Strela is the last major missing piece to my collection. I fear bidding on ones I see on ebay because I can't spot a well made fake :)

    The dial is fake as well as all the hands, except the hour hand. And the asking price is 499 euro!

    I have posted a few fake strela and the dial comparison. Look at the hour markers.

    OK - I'll study the comparison photos. What if the fakers get the hour markers right?
