    I guess as no one has replied, at least there's nothing that's obviously wrong with this watch. Thanks!

    Here's that dial and hands in the '93 catalog. I would question why yours doesn't have the place of manufacture at "6". Also has an old case back, I believe. I would have found it hard to pass up at that price but probably would have. I hope it runs good.

    Thank you!

    I'm thinking that if I had access to all of these (wonderful) catalogs, I could spend the time trying to browse them myself instead of having to bother you, gurus, every time I find something that fascinates me (I always feel a bit ashamed when asking). Is there a (somewhat) comprehensive link list of Russian watch catalogs somewhere? It isn't easy to find these catalogs searching for them. I did find some of Raketa's catalogs here, but so far no luck with Vostok catalogs, not to mention the many other Russian watch brands.

    Glad to help, comrade.

    Personally, finding and learning how to use the various Russian watch catalogs has been the single most important factor in improving the authenticity of my collection.

    a suspicious Poljot stadium / fish eye for your consideration and my education:


    I see at least two concerns:
    -English on dial but cyrillic for the days of the week?
    -the hands: normally with the stripes-and-balls outer ring, the hands are not these ones with the centre ridge, but flat ones with a recessed centre part that is white, black (or even red ?)


    and many thanks to mroatman for those catalog links!

    Everything appears to be okay with this crab, I even like the look of the condition for its age. Hands and crown look to be fine, but I am no expert like everyone else is here!

    Good eye. This seller (azbukaua, if I recognize the photography) is a known purveyor of frankens and watches with repainted dials. There are occasionally good watches in the mix, but I would pass on this one.
