    All I can find to complain about is that hands appear to have been re-lumed, the lume does not match, hands to dial, the dot at 12 is sloppy, and a dial in that pristine condition should probably be in a better case but maybe its perfect gold case was "harvested" by the gold hunters. Everything else looks good and authentic to me. Let's see what the others say.

    Definitely chrome. The case is correct as per the catalog and other known examples. It's just the hands.

    I agree that it looks completely authentic, but in that condition it was bound to go quick. Hope it was you who got it.

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

    Hello I recently purchased a nice 1967 vostok 2209 "50th anniversary of the October Revolution" watch. The case, crystal, dial, and hands appear to be original. I'm pretty sure that the crown has been replaced though. My question is if the movement is original. The movement has the circled B vostok logo at the top which I've only seen on amphibias which makes me suspect that the movement might have come from one. Is this correct? Sorry for the bad lighting.

    The "B" is okay for a 1967 watch and I think the crown is authentic. Now if it has its original crystal in a profile you just can't get anymore you will have the complete package.

    Based on the dirt under the crystal, the scratches and scuffs, and the dirt around where the crystal meets the case, I'm 98% sure its original unless the crystal was replaced a long time ago.

    I hope so for your sake. The old crystals have a more gradual curve at the edge resulting in less distortion of the dial edges. New crystals tend to have more vertical "shoulders" with a flatter face.
