    Well done!
    Can you tell me more about the blue (?) one on the bottom row (2nd from the left) ? Which model is this?

    Well, from my understanding, these were produced late 60's into the 70's (historically I'm thinking they fell between the models we see currently from the 80's and the older/smaller cased watches). The one you see, while it is relatively a larger sized case on par with the newer models, it has the small 2234 movement in it. The best I can explain is that people started wanting larger scale watches, but they still had a glut of smaller movements....so they built a big watch with a big spacer, put it in a big case and used in internal 'bezel' with seconds indices to fill the gap. It's an elegant looking watch, and a really nice design. Most that I have ever seen are ЗАКАЗ stamped. I've seen them in blue, black and maroon (I think). I noticed a couple on eBay the other day, btw.

    Yeah..LOL! I think everybody thought I was insane for a while because every time I posted a new watch it was a Komandirskie Tank! I had a few more than what you see, but I decided to sell the ones not stamped Сделано в СССР or ЗАКАЗ МО СССР. I always check for them when I'm looking at auctions, and if I see one really cheap, I buy it.

    Mine says hello. Do any of yours have a case back like mine? It's the only one I've seen in this whole thread. I don't know what it could possibly come of of beside a Komandirskie, but I can't read the Cyrillic at the bottom of the case:





    I need one of those older MO CCCP 3AKA3.

    That is the first K'skie case back I have seen like that. VERY interesting. The "Водонепроницаемый" means "WATERPROOF". It looks like a plain case back that maybe someone has 'tooled' for decorative purposes....you ALWAYS see new stuff and I'm constantly surprised by what pops up!

    Is that a recent purchase? I know I've seen one before, unless it was yours.

    Re: KOMANDIRSKIE lets see them.

    These are most of mine. I have some more, but they're considered spares or need a bit of work.

    My first Vostok was the topright black tankadirskie. My first step down the spiral



    The 2 top blue 3AKA3 are great lookers. The bottom submarines were very cheap and though some people wouldn't like them because of their damaged dials I think it adds to the charm of the watch (esp since they only cost like $10)



    Love the black space komandirskie, but it has a broken mainspring, so it has limited runtime (about 9 hours) after a wind. The blue ribbed submarine dials are stunning.



    Flightdecks with tiny differences on the dial.



    Last but not least, my bling bling golden dirskies



    I have a few "old style" komandirskies too, but they're not in the best shape.
