    looks to be the same but better quality mine you would only get away with it on blurry pics it looks like they even did a screw down crown mine was just faked to look like it would on the one of the three and the hands are better

    looking closer I would agree really case and what not just a clone movement so the rest would have been of use but this one was only worth the 30 secs it took to be destroy by hammer

    Many stand out like a sore thumb, yet some are getting very hard to tell. Why they bother is odd to me, can't be a lot of profit

    well have thought a few times with my parts about getting a cheap clone to put in to get them running but it just would not be right . depends how much a clone cost I would imagine very little as you can buy a auto now for a fiver so depending where they are sold if the case looks in that a good condition like the wus one then some one might get carried away that's why I keep on saying don't like lots when you can't see the movement have gone for them if silly money just for a chance but as a rule not that often so yes could understand some of the top ends Russians but a vostok as I said the one next to it cost 15 all in

    Unfortunately, false Russian watches can be found...especially in Ukraine and/or China.
    The first thing I do when I look at such a dial, is how Cyrillic letters have been written.

    Just see "17 jewels" on this dial which is "17 KAMHEN" instead of "17 камней" ...!

    Just starting from this point, this one appears to be a real bad bad joke.

    yes indeed that why my friend sent it to me he thought I would like to see it and sometime when in job lots not as easy to tell. this the one was a bad attempt have seen other not so much like in the wus link where from the out side you would not be able to tell .. plus I did it more for members just starting out who would not be able to tell these give aways but yes would be good to list the faulty's and what to look out for I went for the more physical traits but the lettering and the like is a good sign as well if you can zoom in on a pic if not then the case and the size of crown are a good starting point
