Finally the package from Ukraine arrived today and after some servicing and adjustments I am ready to show "The Pair" in sterling silver.

On the left is a 3Q of 1948 Pobeda from 1st Moscow Factory with a short lived, first version of Geneva stripes. The watch looks all correct with exception of the balance wheel and the crown which seems to be a replacement from the younger Pobeda from mid 50's. All plates are original and wheels look all original too including yellow colored escape wheel and pallet fork.

On the right is my 1Q of 1946 Penza Pobeda, pre-production no serial number example. Since I wrote a lot about this watch before, no need to repeat all the details, except it now sports an original dial (use to have a slightly later replacement)

Both watches, while showing their age, are in perfect mechanical condition and run strong and accurate. I hope you enjoy pictures.

Very nice catches. You have pushed the calendar back. The earliest movements I have are from Q4 1946.
