    A "Franken" I can live with...

    Just picked up this Russian "Franken" off the 'Bay at a great price. I believe the dial is a new, the movement is a Pobeda, and the case - - I'm not too sure. But, I really like the combo. I was thinking about experimenting with it on a S/S mesh or fine link bracelet. The case is 34mm without crown.

    It looks like one of the last Pobedas from the 1990s (factory closed in 1998), but with a custom dial. Could be some small-scale entrepreneur jazzing up some old stock with fancy dials. Looks good though.

    A stunning dial by someone who really has a feel for dial design. I wish you the joy of such a great find.
