    Kev, apart from the balance wheel the dial is legit and the lack of a Poljot crown on the movement is also viable. a small amount of watches did not carry any markings from around this period.

    Cheers

    Thanks very much Matt, I didn't know about the lack of poljot markings on movements. I'm glad the dial is genuine, I'm really tempted to see if I can get my hands on it.
    I'm guessing these don't turn up very often.

    Hi guys, what about this "NOS" Chaika/Chayka that's said to be from the 80s? I've never seen one before.

    Thoughts about this zarya? Hands original? No serial number or any other inscriptions on the case back.

    Indeed, a rare variation for the French market. Boris had one:

    Hands should be gilt to match the hour markers, in my opinion.

    In general, my experience with Soviet watches is that hands should match the indices, regardless of the case color:

    Interesting that his has the poljot Mark on the chronograph bridge which is what I suspected. So I'd need a bridge and a balance. Still worth a go at the right price. Waiting for the seller to get back to me.
