    Does this even remotely resemble anything?

    It's is supposed to be a representation of a 1980s period soviet pilots watch. I guess it should be a chronograph but eaglemoss have been very bad at doing chronographs.

    Any nudge in the right direction is helpful

    loosely i'd agree about the Sturmanskie, the case style is right but the b-uhr type dials were copied by a lot of manufacturers.
    what is throwing me is the green on green dial, I guess they had something in mind when choosing the watch but as with all the other specials the watch itself doesn't get much coverage in the magazine

    other than the complete lack of a green dial the arrangement of hands and numbers in the Poljot also fits the description of the watch if not the execution
