Cheers

Link above, I went for the replacement Silicone  Blue strap option. 
 

Wearing it today by coincidence. Haven’t worn if for a couple of weeks so painful to do that Vostok date thing but it’s a nice watch. I really do have a thing for Vostok’s, they’re generally quite affordable which makes it quite easy to build up a collection.

My latest (another Vostok en route somewhere) arrived a couple of weeks ago. Never quite understood the GMT hand (Oh you use the bezel! ) until this arrived.

Waiting on end links arriving (with the Vostok en route) and I’ll probably swap the bracelet for a dark leather strap. The bracelet itself doesn’t bother me but the clasp isn’t that great.

Thanks Nick...that`s another hit for my bank balance, but what a super watch you get for the money!

Take care mate, stay safe

I went back 60 pages and couldmn't find my contributions to this thread, I was on photobucket that far backl anyhow so the pics will have gone when I closed my account with them!

Some more pics..

 

EDIT- Darn! I wish the insert image and submit thread buttons weren't so close together!! :blush::)

A few more that I bought since I took the above pic..

 

This one has had a hard life!!

I was taken in by this Chinky fake!, I knew something wasn't right with the small crown that didn't wobble or screw down!!, The case back doesn't have the threaded ring either!!

I'm unsure if this modern Qtz Sturmanskie is actually Russian or not!

A 24 hour watch from Roy..

A Slava that I won on fleabay, The nice Russian lady seller actually phoned me up, Couldn't tell what she was saying as her accent was so heavy!, I have the days written down somewhere in cyrillic converted to English as i've no idea what day it is otherwise!! :laughing2dw:

kQKReT6.jpg

 

I got this Rekord Qtz from Roy in one of his clearout days, It was very cheap as the bracelet needed repairing, It's very comfy and the batteries seem to last forever!

 

Can't post the pic as a circle is going round forever!!, Dunno why but teknolojy hates me! Imgur wouldn't open earlier and now this :sadwalk:

 

 

John..

Seeing if I can post pics of the Rekord!!

 

A Rekord 'Exploding numbers' Qtz that I bought from Roy when he was selling some broken bits very cheap! It's so comfy to wear!

The bracelet was broken and needed drilling out then a new pin fitting, It's fine now, I thing the watch was less than a tenner, Can't recall for sure though!!

Here is my watch. I was given it as a gift by a close friend of mine who collects military stuff. I've been looking to find what it is but can't find any pictures of it online. If anyone could give me some insight I'd appreciate it.

Unfortunately it's what we call a "fantasy" watch made up from various bits of different watches with an aftermarket dial - probably knocked up in Ukraine at some point.

As above, and most likely to have a  Russian Molnija pocket watch movement inside it. If you do a search on etsy for "Molnija watch" you will find many with the same dial layout (hours minutes, and second hand) these watches are also known as "Marriage watches" and more honestly as "Franken watches".

You can buy the kits from various sources and build your own. The strap on your example is commonly sold by Ukranian vendors, which is (as already mentioned) where I would suspect the  complete watch originated.

Hi folks, I'm Kristian, new to the forum. Think I need to have been around a while before I post pics, but I *do* have half a dozen nice Russians: a Slava cushion case, a Scuba-dude, a Komandirsky, a Raketa (probably a franken-Raketa) and a Pobeda. I just missed getting a nice Poljot chrono world timer because I chickened out with it in my basket then it sold :(  

It's the Poljot Chronotgrao 31681 I'm after. Any thoughts on these much obliged.

Ordered this little 

  • WOSTOK- VOSTOK KOMANDIRSKIE 1965

back in July from eBay for £3.40 had to put a new strap on it but it is a wonderful little watch that I really do like

The black strap compliments the black dial better than the brown strap.
