Extremely Rare Issued Czechoslovakian Pobeda Received


Just received this extremely rare Issued Czech` military Pobeda watch from 1957. It has the 41m 32yh 15j movement,keeping seamless time.These watches came in two types,one with Czech issue marks on the dial,[as above] and two,with written issue marks on case back. I have never seen a watch with both.
I must thank the extremely honest seller from Checkoslovakia,for this watch. I bought over the Christmas period,and our wires got a bit crossed,but the seller,[thank you jindra,frantik 123],still managed to get the watch to me.
I am extremely pleased to have found this watch,it has everything i like,similar to 15j Sturmanskie,and very understated. SOLD

1st World War R.F.C Trench Watch After Repair by Steve at Rytetime

Have just received the R,F,C Trench watch,see previous sad story], back from Stephen Burrage.Once again he has accomplished a minor miracle.The watch was gaining a half hour in every hour.The watch crystal had been clumsily glued on.also the pin set that changes the hands was not operating.He repaired all the defects,and it is now keeping excellent time,[which is quite something for a pin pallet movement].I could not recommend him more highly.[Follow the links to his website in my favourite links section,on the right hand side of the blog].
I have purchased a new hand made bund strap,off of David at vintagewatchstraps,as usual he has done a great job,and the strap compliments the watch superbly.
