Nice! Good catch!
I have one of those, but in the TiN cushion case. For a minute there I thought it was some sort of franked, but hadda look twice. It was on a bracelet, not a strap so I missed the case shape.
Your numbers look thinner than on my "red star" Komandirskies, but definitely the correct date wheel. Maybe not. Ill have to look again... Good catch anyway!

This one caused me some stress !
First, i had to wait about 4 months for it become available again.
Bought it from Komandirskie.com and everything went smoothly until it reached the czech customs. Had to fill and send a bunch of papers as fast as possible to solve the issue before... the arrival of more parcels from Russia (meranom), Ukraine and Serbia (Sergei) 🕵️‍♂️

I got the email few days ago that it was again available on Komandirskie.com; I was very tempted but with so many watches I've bought lately I've managed to restrain myself not buy this one too :cautious: it will have to wait some other time...

Very common dial, but mine's the only one I've ever seen with no date window. I'm planning to remove the paint from the bezel, but I still haven't decide which dots to remove. I'm keeping the largest one, that's the only sure thing.

I have a handful of vintage and current examples that I've modded. This one I received from a friend who had received it as a gift 30 years ago and never wore it because he thought "...the battery was dead." I opened it up gave it a quick wind and it fired right up. No lume left, but no surprise there.

Are you sure it wasn't a wind up?
