    What is your favorite (or strangest) face graphic?

    Apologies if Iím using the wrong term, I am talking about how Russian watches sometimes having slogans or pictures of famous people on them

    I think one of my personal favorites I saw on eBay was a Vostok with Pope John Paul II

    Iíve also seen Saddam Hussein and Qaddafi

    I won a CCCP Slava last night

    I've not really been one to collect watches featuring a persons face or bust, however I did purchase a Peter the Great Komandirskie quite a while ago and it just never seems to get sold

    Surely they could have used a better drawing of Boris Yeltsin...

    Not really my style, but here are a couple I've seen around:

    Not certain, but I don't think either dial was originally produced by Vostok.

    Not as of I would buy any of these, but they are somewhere a welcome change from toy weapons: little tanks, liíl submarines, liíl MiGís...

    And not to say Russian/Soviet watches are alone with tacky portraits: I remember how I was shocked in 1978 (1st OPEC petrol shock) spotting in Geneva, at Buchererís window display, a platinum Rolly with then ruling Arab kingís portrait as dial background, black on gold, with a dozen diamonds for indexes.

    Believe me, poor taste has little borders, and nouveau-riche cross these no problem.

    I don't have an example on hand, but I love the occasional Komandirskie that pop up sometimes on forums sporting a dial that commemorates some random factory. So you get people that scoop these up at a flea market for $5 and then proudly wear their watch commemorating the 40th anniversary of some factory making lampshades on Sakhalin.

    Not my kind of watches though, but hey, everyone has got their preferences right?

    I'm not really a fan of watches with portraits of people on them.

    We've discussed this dial before - I really like this one:

    If we aren't just speaking about dials, what about this Sturmanskie with a Yuri Gagarin caseback?
