    Not always the most reliable information. In fact, if you stay with this long enough you will learn to ignore 75% or more of what sellers are saying and use your own eyes and knowledge to judge what is being sold.

    you seem to like the aviator style. Why don't you look for one of these pictured below in a 2002 Poljot catalog. They are available from time to time and not too expensive. It would take some patience. Search "Poljot aviator watch" every day and you should have one before you know it.

    Re: What did you buy today?

    Sansoni7 - I agree with Schurrp that the Poljot pilot watches would be a great choice. There are also chronograph, 24 hour and alarm versions if you want some added complications. Poljot stopped making these watches in about 2005, but ex-employees continued under the MakTime and Volmax Aviator brands for another five years or so.

    But BEWARE, there are a lot of copies of these. For example, all currently offered on ebay from the Ukraine are modern copies in my opinion. Some points to look out for: second hands should most often be red with a black end - other colours are, I believe, false, as are any with meatballs. Crowns are often (but not always) signed with the Poljot crown or A for Aviator. Casebacks are, I believe, always numbered and this number will look typically different from the rest of the design. Casebacks showing a vintage pilot with no number are, I believe, all false. Low numbers (especially 007 and 008) are suspect. Movements marked SU have normally, I believe, been reused. There are a lot of genuine variations, so these are not necessarily fixed rules but they do add up to give a certain confidence.

    Neon yellow/green is an unusual but viable alternative

    I really like that model with no branding but, since I am not really knowledgeable on post-soviet "Russian" watches, I would be looking for the "Poljot" brand or crown somewhere as a starting point.

    That would be an easy way for a beginner to begin to weed out the knock-offs. Then post your selection for confirmation before buying, if you have time.

    Re: What did you buy today?

    Whoa! This one had me almost buying. Probably get it for less than $100/delivered. Rare 3105 movement (3133 chrono movement without chrono function, for those who are wondering).

    Pictured below in 2004 Poljot catalog, upper right:

    Probably 40mm+ in diameter, though.
