Absolutely, you should Lindsey.

I've no idea who to suggest who you get to look at it but, as a Russian watch, it ought not to be too costly to fix. Maybe even a simple service will do.

Pretty brave, modding a Rolex! I’ll bet you negatively affected its resale value!

I have 1 watch that I would consider unique and that is my PINION Axis Steel Dawn.
ImagePINION_Axis_Blue by StrapMeister, on Flickr

This is a one off that was specifically built using the basis of the Steel Dawn blue dial, however, what distinguishes from the original version is that it has the newer PINION hand set and also has a polished case (the original was brushed).
The original Steel Dawn can be found on this page https://www.pinionwatches.com/collectio ... xis-steel/ for comparison.

Please don't take this as being negative or dismissive but I have heard, at Soviet watch fora, of local watchmakers/jewellers being quite sniffy about tackling service/repair of soviet watches. In terms of any old vostok lacking any sentimental attachment the more economic route would undoubtedly be renewal with new.

I think I still have one or two FB russian watch group memberships and I'll make a few discrete enquiries.

This first series Brellum is #4 of just eight watches made.
Alternatively this watch is an ETA apprentice piece: there may be plenty of them but I've never seen another.

Maybe they did a digital watch, perhaps with a calculator.

I worked on the launch of the C64 and, before that, the VIC 20. Somewhat astonishingly, given how horrifically slow they are by today’s standards, these can fetch quite a lot of money now. I’ve seen them sell for over £250!

Mine had to be this Speedy that was put together by Gary - it’s a custom build so there is, quite literally, only one of them!

Being both unique and affordable, my offer is the Project: Reveal in stainless. A gift from my wife before we had children, it is one I wear often in part because it presents differently from other watches. It’s not a rare one, as it is sold through the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, but I’ve never seen anyone else with one.
