    Re: What did you buy today?

    This yesterday. The gold numbered dial with the gold hands is a little less common in my experience. Lume is still in place although hands have gone their own color way over time. Looks all authentic including crown and crystal with even wear. Dial is clear which is a problem with these STARTs; often have fungus/mold eating the lacquer.

    Yes, that is exactly it. I've seen such "Festival" watches for Pobeda, Start, Sportivnie, and Moskva, but never the Mayak brand.

    The date on the movement is Q2-1957, same as these.

    It should be blue. Case type is 1391.

    It should also be 18mm.

    Also, under magnification, the movement appears to be the 2234 hacking version of the 2214 (which it should be according to the catalog), the only movement being produced at that time on which you could stop the second hand by pulling out the crown.

    Huh, interesting point. Sportivnie was long-retired, and the 31659 wouldn't come until later. Never thought about that before.

    Should have said "only soviet non-quartz movement", I don't know about other manufacturers and I believe some of the soviet quartz movements produced at that time were hacking; not sure.

    Re: What did you buy today?

    Photos are seller's. This watch looks pretty good to me - I looked for things I've learned from y'all and to me the movement looks original - please advise if I'm wrong. At first I thought the crown might be a replacement, but the general condition of the watch seems to me to be consistent with one that hasn't been used much, but maybe sat in a drawer for years. I think these are pretty common - I wanted a red 12 Pobeda and was happy to find one in good condition.

    Thanks for the info, mroatman and schnurrp! I am impressed with your ability to decode badly compressed jpegs, schnurrp...I was struggling with the number. I'm excited to have one with the hacking feature!
    cheers,
