    Theoretically I'd say yes, but if it comes from a certain "service vintage watches" I guess you should also consider the possibility of a carefully assembly of mixed original parts.
    Finding an original one with an uniform patina from a non professional seller/owner rest an alternative, often at a much lower price.

    Or more importantly what are people's opinions on the movement. I assume some restoration has been done and I am ok with that, and thank you for the input bostok

    The "Geneva stripes", the lines left deliberately on the movement after polishing, all appear to line up correctly - suggesting that it is original. Movement matches the dial and production date fits the period when these were made by the First Moscow Watch Factory for Pobeda.

    Appears to be an authentic START from the Second Moscow Watch Factory. These models had a unique case construction with an unconventional back and were made from aluminum coated with a gold finish of some kind, not plated. I assume there's a problem with the color of the picture.

    See here.
