    Good pickup on the case, comrade, but I can't really see Sekonda using a special case made for the Italian market for their UK products. I also questioned the damaged dial in the pristine case.

    Thank you for the kind answer. There seems effectively to be an enormous variety, but the watch next to this one in the catalogue is sporting exactly the same bezel and half of the models have the other second hand. So kind of reassuring, especially for the price :), thanks a lot!

    Also, despite being pictured in the catalog that bezel with the small dots is almost never seen on an actual watch.

    Could some knowledgable comrade cast their eye upon this offering on fleabay, as I suspect there is something wrong with it: A Poljot 17 jewel mens watch | eBay

    Even the specific dial obviously has two variants with the "made in USSR" position on the intern respectively extern (probably more recent and presented in the 1993 catalogue) cironference. This is a pristine similar watch (photo courtesy of lucky watch, in the mini komandirskie topic), but of course, there is a slight difference with the top triangle on the bezel being red (another variant found in the catalogue) rather then black. Soviet watches are really, really fun :)

    Appears to be missing a bezel, compare it to an example from polmax3133.com

    Don't know why there are also photos of an Oris watch in the ebay listing.

    Not any soviet movement I'm familiar with. Perhaps it is an Oris watch with a Poljot dial substituted.
