Recently, I've been seeing these lots of russian watch movements on ebay. Anyone buy them? They seem to go for $5 or 10. I wonder if they're good to practice on or try to repair broken pobedas and such.

I did; it is a good way to get parts as they are not too easy to get here in this part of the world. But it is always a roll of the dice, since you cannot be certain of their conditions. Some parts can be faulty or rusty, but that is a risk worth taking, to my mind. At least it is better than some vendors who offer parts movements at around $40 a pop!
