No general "no fault" return policy?
I'd be tempted to just not pay. That happened to me several times as a seller and I couldn't even leave bad feedback when the buyer backed out. I doubt there's any penalty for non-payment as long as you don't make it a habit.
A Mayak dial unlike any I've ever seen.
Also picked up a Belorussian alarm (NOS).
And this positively funktacular creation from Chistopol.
Got this delivered today. My 1st Vostok and Russian watch ..

This is my first post here. I know virtually nothing about quality timepieces, but I stumbled upon a Vostok Commander on the web, and fell down a wonderful rabbit hole. It was love at first sight when I started looking at Russian watches! I am an artist who does art featuring vintage style robots, and something about the idea of a tiny precision hand-wound machine on my wrist really sparked my imagination.
I jumped in and bought a few watches, just to get my hands on some and check them out in person. Firstl, I got a distressed-looking Komandirskie, based on some badly compressed photos and a prayer . I can't tell for sure, but the outer ring looks green to me. Is that a thing, or is it a blue ring that I am misreading?
My second score was this sweet 2409A, which has a vintage look that I just LOVE. Obviously not highly sought after, based on the prices I'm seeing, but that translucent green face touches a just-right nostalgic button for me!
I understand that I should be looking for an 18mm band for the Komandirskie, but I haven't been able to figure out the lug width on the 2409A. I am also curious as to what the case numbers are for these watches.
I used what I learned lurking here to make sure to get the "zakaz mo cccp" model of the Komandirskie, and am bidding on some even more ambitious pieces now. Looks like I'm hooked, at least for the moment! I appreciate the willingness of the members here to share their knowledge so generously!
I forgot to mention how fantastic the watches are that everyone else is posting! I'm feeling a little outgunned here! :)
