Original 15j Hacking Shturmanskie.




Just received this 15j Sturmanskie,[my favourite Russian watch],off a great seller from Uzbekistan,[received the watch within 4 days of payment],thank you Alexander.
This watch is in superb original condition,it really is becoming increasingly difficult to find examples of these iconic watches,in this condition,they have either been redialled or retouched.
This beautiful example ,has its original number lume,still working,also note the original pillow crown and blued hands.
Keeps great time,hack function works as it should.
I shall be sourcing a more complementary strap soon.
A great watch off a great seller.

  3. It has weathered the years rather well, and the 'Moscow' stripes are lovely!

    Kind regards

  4. Many Thanks Aditya,it always amazes me,how these Russian watches keep functioning so well,with a high probability of very little servicing,through out their life.
    Best Regards,

    Nice on Russ. I had a look on the 'bay, these seem to be even more frankenized than strelas. I did not see a single one that looked comparable to yours. "NOS dial" yeh right. Wrong hands. Obvious wrong dials. Etc. Depressing ....

  6. Hello Ralf,
    Yes,they are becoming very rare in original condition,and expensive.Its very sad that many people get caught out and buy Frankens for serious money.It is a complete minefield
