Czechoslovakian. Air Force Issue .Pobeda. Restoration.

 Czechoslovakian Air Force Issue Pobrda. These watches are Rare and starting to command high prices at auction.The above picture shows final restoration.
The watch had been on ebay for some time, with a high buy it now price.. Unfortunately with the wrong case, movement and hands.
At this point i would like to thank Marian,[the seller],After i pointed out the only original Part was the dial, he made me an incredibly generous offer, which i accepted.
The pictures below are the restoration in pictures.
 Non original movement and case.
 Non original Hand set and crown
 Donor 1st MWF Movement
 Picture with dial removed from Franken movement. [two screws].
 Czech Dial on donor movement. Pobeda dial by the side.
Dial attached to correct movement with correct hands mounted.

Back to picture one. This watch shows all of its use and patina and many years of its history plastered all over its dial,. A military watch, just by its raison d`etre should show some form of wear, this one has obviously had a very hard life.Great to bring it back to its original spec.

Great addition to the collection.
