    Picture My new Vostok collection - Are they a find, fake, or frankenstine?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new to the forum. I just started collecting watches, starting with Russian wrist and pocket watches. I have several photos posted if you want to take a look. If there are any Vostok collectors reading this, I'm wondering if the watch parts posted in the vintage watches look original, which watch is the most rare and have the most reliable movements, and how hard it will be to repair any of them. So far I'm finding it either impossible or very expensive to repair and risky to buy on ebay. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Given my first experience with repairs, I have deicded to purchase several watches on ebay just to ensure I have parts. Finding a watchmaker that charges a decent price, that I can trust is my next challenge. i do plan on purchasing some watch tools though to let me at least get in the case and do minor repairs.

    Vostok Komandirskie circa 1962 caliber 2234?
    military version, 3AKA3 MO CCCP
    Purchased from ebay seller Kojaviktor and it arrived broken (cannot wind).
    Decided to keep this one even though it arrived broken because it looked unique and harder to find but, i could be wrong. I took it to a local watch store and they will charge $120 to repair.
