    Thank you for feedback mariomart.

    Now i understand, the "octagonal" case type 470 is only a "Albatros" if the dial is NAVAL themed.
    Antimagnetic on dial, we nickname it "anti-magnetic" and there is also the "radio-room"
    A little research revealed, that if the "octogonal" case is polished it is case type 320 versus case type 470 is brushed.

    The series of watches named Albatros, are only the examples that actually have Albatros in Cyrillic on the dial.

    Regarding the red stamping, could anyone explain me why some have two lines and others three? I came across this but never found out what was the reason/trigger for this difference, and what the genuine marking of Albatros pieces should be.

    Great--I finally completed my own subcollection, of which 2 are full set with papers and 2 are restored/reconstructed watches (I wouldn't be offended if anyone would call them franken or fake).
