Purchased earlier in the week. I'm currently waiting on this Slava. I love that quirky date window.

Dial and hands look mint, and the caseback is pretty dang rare. But like you, it would have only been a parts watch for me. I'm glad it finally found a good home, and hope you got it for less than €50.
Photos when your restoration is complete!
I picked up the 150SE orange today.... Now the waiting game begins....

I've never understood if Slava was fully out of business or not. There's a shop in Moscow, which has a website (slava.su), that seems to be the official "Slava" store and even has new models using the 2427/2428 movements coming out still, I'm not sure if the movements are being made somewhere, or if they just have a very large stock from back in the day.
Regardless I decided to try out a new Slava that's packing a 2427, not the best deal on the planet, but it looks like the quality is a bit better than the last new one I bought a few years back.
If you haven't seen that website before check it out, lots of interesting models from Russian companies (many are Japanese quartz, but that's how the industry is nowadays...).
From an ebayer who mostly seems to deal in commemorative bronze medals!
Not sure about the second hand and the crystal needs replacing with something higher but this one went for a song:
Strap included as a gift, according to the listing :D
I'm spending the first half of this month impatiently waiting for post!
