Junkman, your watch looks to be the Bostok reissue of the Sputnik. Two examples, white and black dials, are discussed at https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/vos...atch-7183.html
Second hand looks good, and the caseback also appears on the Buran Arctic/Antarctic - but these are rare, so I guess you should consider the possibility of a fake.
What do you make of this movement?
And the big question, who is being naughty here?
I'll post more information soon, but I would like your first impressions just on the movement.
I'm Shahrin from Malaysia. Just need an opinion (the first of many to come) from the gurus in this forum. Been a lurker here for the past month or two, and just getting into watches, as prior to this I'm a one-watch man - my trusty Oris 7461 is on my wrist nearly every day for close to 2 decades, and probably it's about time to give this gold-plated dude a bit of rest. My main focus of collection is in fountain pens, and I use this same handle at The Fountain Pen Network.
I'm just curious to the authenticity of this watch:
*Item 332035911887 on eBay*
Is this a "mod" watch (franken/ fake if you prefer it that way)?
The seller has a solid eBay rating of 100%, although apparently he's quite known for offering his own personal takes on what Russian watches should be
Thanks in advance.
