    When it arrives try to measure the diameter of the lug hole. Perhaps a set from the Poljot Basilika line fits.
    Or try to find it on esslinger / ofrei. I think its called something like: T-Bar Screw Lug

    Epic , the Hong Kong mention on the bracelet is a sure (bonus) value and wise addition to the whole package. Thanks for sharing

    Hello guys, how are you?

    What do you think about this Poljot? I think the dial has been relumed because isn't the same colour as the lume in the hands.

    Many thanks in advance

    Case, bezel, and crown (maybe back) are from the earlier 30 jewel model, in my opinion. Good candidate for a reconstruction of a rare watch if the 30 jewel dial wasn't so hard to find. That 23 jewel dial looks too new. I believe Ruscamera had some dials available at one time, the authenticity of which I know not.

    Fake dial. Sure the color is a good evidence, but also notice the font, specifically the letter "L" and the different sizes of "23" and "Jewels".

    I decided I need a Cadet/Junior Vostok in my, so far very modest, collection. I kinda like this, but I ask myself why is it priced at about 50 % of all other Cadets I find on eBay, and I can't come up with an answer. So, I'm calling on the experts! Thanks!
