Antarktida Received.

As i stated in my previous post took  bit of a risk in purchasing this Antarktida,one of my grail watches.What a pleasant surprise,the charming seller from Ukraine managed to deliver in 5 days.Exceptional.
It is everything i had hoped for,the original dial has expected Patina,but is still clearly legible,it even has some very slight lume.Hands are correct,large central seconds hand is correct, though possibly a newer replacement.
Hacking Movement,a modified 1st MWF Pobeda, is functioning accurately and correctly in its 24hr timekeeping,date on movement is 1957,which is i believe correct.
This watch is so rare,possibly only 200 pieces made,that information is hard to come by,i must thank Roberts site ussrwatches for the above information[that's hoping i have read it correctly].
