    Is this Komandirskie real?

    Hi all, I recently bought this Komandirskie off ebay, I was wondering if anyone could tell me if its a real one, although I think it may have amphibian hands.VOSTOK KOMANDIRSKIE COMMANDER ZAKAZ MO USSR SOVIET RUSSIAN MILITARY WATCH 1980s | eBay

    Those are the wrong hands for a Komandirskie, they should be on an Amphibia. Not sure about the rest of the watch, looks like the seller took down most of his pictures.

    Hmm, do you have any pictures? There should be at least some decoration stamped on the back, it would be odd if it was completely bare/blank.

    Also do you have any pictures of the movement? That is usually the part I am most concerned about when buying vintage watches.

    Those hands belong to a newer type amphibian. You can tell by the lume part of the minute hand that is shorter then on old type amphibians. My guess is the original hands weren't ok anymore and new hands were transferred to replace them.
    Here's a picure of older amphibian hands and one with komandirskie hands.

    Bezel should have red dot where fake "lume" dot has been substituted.
