I have noticed a large number of watches appearing with those immaculate black dials from Ukraine.
Can we see a picture of the movement?

Lovely watch, looks in good condition but as Schnurrp mention, It's not correct hands and crow, it's important for you to know that but however I believe your gold hands are later model in 2209 with completely different dial
I have my own new old stock of early model of Sekonda 2209 with correct hands and crown, same as Dash collection and also it's confirms it in Argos catalog book as well
Here the from the late 60's catalog book for proof reference
Hope this helps
My advice- buy a watch that pleases you. Don't let anyone judge or tell you what to wear. Good cheap and expensive watches are no different between them. Both still can tell the time.
Those type of dials are being manufactured again such as for this new Quartz Luch https://luch.by/en/kollektsii/retro/331727585/ so must be easy to buy for retro-fitting.
I uploaded the photo used in the listing.
I was aware, and was inclined to believe, that at least some parts were not original. Could even be what some would call a Frankenwatch. That's pretty much what you will find on eBay especially coming from the Ukraine, and at this price. I've always gravitated towards eBay for Russian watches for some reason. Perhaps it's because they are plentiful and relatively inexpensive. I looked at many identical models, some much more expensive. I chose this one because of it's overall condition and price.
BTW, the watch has been keeping good time. No issues.
Thanks for your input guys. If any of you could recommend an reputable on-line site(s) for purchasing new/vintage Russian watches I would be interested.
