I just ordered my first Russian watch. I went with what everyone probably starts out with, black dial Vostok Scuba Dude. I ordered mine with a green bezel, should look something like this:
Now the waiting game begins for shipping!

bought a month ago, but just arrived a few days ago and i finally got around to bringing it out to slap a band on it.
rather convinced the dial's restored (decently high chance, considering the seller's rep) and the crown's replaced, but the movement is sound and i've been looking for a pobeda for a while... what do y'all think?
Pic isn't showing flenr. Try posting again but use the Go Advanced option. Site is having a recurrence of a picture issue that crops up now and then.
Can see the pic now. Will leave it to more knowledgeable contributors to comment on it's authenticity or you could post in the Franken QA thread.
Real or fake, it's a nice looking watch.
Got myself all worked up to get a military issue 6e4-1 to round off my ratnik collection when I saw this. Vostok 2416b with a unidirectional click bezel! I passed up the chance to get a Generalskie with a click bezel a while back, not knowing it was uncommon, so I went for it. Horribly overpaid for a 2416b but it's pretty and I like the idea of a clicky vostok. Just won't be making any watch purchases for a little while!

After a period of purchasing quite a few pieces I have been feeling very content with my humble collection and had decided to hold off purchasing any more for a while. You know, save up for something special. But then I spent the day in bed with the flue and to pass time I went on eBay and this happened...
