    Back on topic -- snagged a groovy Zaria I'd never seen before.

    Re: What did you buy today?

    My first vintage purchase. Photos are seller's, as it won't be here for a month. I hadn't really intended to buy without getting input from this forum, but this one popped up with no bids so I made an executive decision and grabbed it. The condition looks pretty good for a ~25 year old watch, at least to me. I paid $25 US - did I screw up?

    From my available catalogs this one from '90 comes closest. There do appear to be arabic second/minute numbers at the hour marks, unusual to say the least for a Roman numeral watch. Those "arrows" were in the Vostok quivver (see pic below from '80 catalog) although these might have alway been "skeleton".

    I would say 75% chance of authenticity due to the nice even wear and overall good condition. Either an unusual Chistopol product or someone chose and assembled some nice parts, carefully. Impossible to say without some more input. Does another exist out there?

    Schnurrp - the catalogue images you link to aren't appearing, at least for me.

    This appears to be a black dial version from a 1983-5 catalogue:

    Different case, but it at least proves these hands were used with this style of Roman numerals dial.

    Similar hands were used on another Roman numeral dial, which comes to mind -- but now we're veering way off course.

    Thanks for the information - it amazes me how much you people know about this stuff. The hands do look like that second watch, including the sphere on the hour hand. Whether or not it's a composite (would that make it a franken?) I think it an attractive and unusual watch. If you're interested I'll post more pictures when it arrives.

    Ok, now that's an unusual watch. I might have to hunt around for one of those. :)

    Interestingly, I just found another Vostok on Ebay with the same hands, although the face is different:

    I guess this is good.

    I didn't need a third Neptune that I probably wouldn't keep in the long run but for the right price...
