    Sturmanskie looks good to me. Nice, in a way, that the dial hasn't been "restored" with new red accents at the flying bomb and hour mark. Unfortunate that such a pristine second hand is used but since it is obviously a replacement or has been re-painted you should be able to find another replacement from a sportivnie in a condition more in keeping with the rest of the watch. I wouldn't pay top dollar for this one, however.

    You should ask for that wonderful old strap!

Just have to be patient and keep looking, I guess.

    Here's a nice NOS example with original paperwork if don't mind gold:

    I bought this one about 9 months ago on a whim, from an ebay seller in uzbekistan. I had the attitude at the time that at $28 including shipping, it was so cheap I didnít care how authentic it was. Now Iím curious, though.

    How about this 3133 on ebay. I didn't know the Sturmanskies came in this sort of case

    Looks like the bezel is for an amphibian on that tank komandirskie.
