    Good morning, see if you can help me, I would like to buy this watch and I'm not sure about the dial. The seller has only put 2 photos and I can not see the machinery.

    Refurbished (at max) watch for me, wrong hour and minute hands, fake (or repainted dial, with "Buran" in place of "Sputnik"?), repainted in all red (?) second hand, other crown and back cover, etc.
    I'd pass.

    Im afraid Bostok gave you the wrong information. That is the Sputnik reissue made by vostok. Quite a rare one!

    I'm so sorry for the mis information , I was totally refering to the original Sputnik and I really didn't know a reissue by Boctok was ever produced.

    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.

    Glad I didn't give my similar opinion of that one. Something new to me, if not every day now, at least every month...still.

    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.

    Re: Q&A Expertise thread: Is this watch legit or a franken? Part 2

    Hi

    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.


    Shahrin
