I don't dare to count either, but I guess the most memorable are a few really sweet early Pobedas, the 3105.01 Zaria, and a Slava white-and-red quartz in almost as-new condition.
Sounds like me without any criteria, though...yet!I have criteria and try to narrow my search to specific watches but somehow i still always buy watches outside my criteria:roll:. My first year of collecting I pretty much bought any vintage russian i could get my had on for cheap and bought about 50 watches in 3 months, I don't regret those purchases though. I have since given my collection a direction. I still randomly collect swiss and russian watches that I think look nice or can use for parts though.
Did you switch to Pobeda? What about Vympel / Kosmos project, is it over? I think you definitely need a dream - a Grail to chase, otherwise the projects will be to easy to close. What about this Poljot 2427 - the ultra-thin 29 jewels with day and date (picture from RIA - novosti).Still no go yet, besides I still need to get a few of them properly fixed.
!! I'll second that! It's a great collection of beautiful pieces. Nice photos too!MR Mike!
When i´ll see your "yearcollection" its hard to find out what your next level is!
That is a great yearcollection!
