I know it's little expensive, but is it real??

I am usually very curious about my new acquisitions and can't wait to see what their performance is on the timegrapher.
As far as wear is concerned, the forces in a mechanical watch are so small (even a slight contact of the second hand with another hand or the dial face is enough to stop everything) that the lack of proper lubrication and/or presence of dust or dirt brings the gear train to a stop long before the friction between the metal gear shafts and the bearings have a chance to do any harm. I have never heard a knowledgeable watchmaker (I'm a rank amateur) warn against running a watch with an unknown service record.
If you are contemplating doing the service yourself, that's different. Have at it. I thought you were going to have it serviced by someone else.
I am quite new to watch collection and I can across this in a vintage shop in Bishkek, it says USSR in Latin so I am a bit worried it could be a Frankenstein :$ thoughts?
Almost forgot, I also found this vintage Komandirskie! Can't tell if it is Propper USSR made or a later version though (it does seem like it's been through a lot!)
