    From what you've shown they look good. Movement pictures would help.

    I believe most think that case is legit but the ones pictured in the catalog have a different case. Everything else looks good.

    The Pobeda has seems to have the correct movement, the only thing that looked off to me was the dial and blued hands.



    I've asked the seller for a picture of the movement, but it's already stated that it's a 2627 auto movement.

    Which is the only rather common/inexpensive automatic movement that Raketa made.


    "When and from where did i even order this thing?"-Myself whenever a new watch arrives in the mail.

    That's a very special movement; is the dial TTK-1? I can't read it. The two should be together. I don't remember seeing a ttk-1 dial in that copper color.

    The dial is 2Mchz marked.

    Which means it's a franken of sorts, which is a bit of a shame as i really liked the blued hands.

    I'll search for a more completely example if i can.

    If the watch is cheap, it would be worth picking up for the movement alone. It's quite rare, even if it's improper for this particular watch.

    Or if you don't want it, I would gladly trade you for the correct 2MWF movement :)

    A bit late on that offer.

    Found the exact same watch, in better condition with the correct movement for the same price.

    Unfortunately after buying a new watchbox to fill a large buying urge came along it.

    Glad you got a better one! These copper dials are really lovely -- I think you're going to love it.

    Would you mind posting the link to that one with the TTK-1 movement? I'd like to have a look anyway.
