Wondering what your opinion is on this 31659 Classic

POLJOT STURMANSKIE 31659 USSR SOVIET WATCH RARE VINTAGE | eBay
Hi, comrade jimzilla! Looks like everything matches - watch, markings and papers. The watch has some signs of time and service - markers's lume loss, the chrono hands have some intervention signs. Looks legit, though. Can't comment the price, I own the 3133 chromed model and it can be obtained quite cheap, but the 31659/0410260 (I take it it's the stainless steel case model, 3133/0411260 being the chromed one?) is a different beer, and it has the papers. Maybe someone who owns one can give his/her input.
To comrade Maxsterr - I second Odessa on the wind rose Raketa, and the 2609.HП movement is the right one for the model. Regulator on the ballance looks a bit strange, being too much on the - setting, which can mean it's a bit magnetized, but I could be wrong.
I really like that wind rose model, although with my eyesight deteriorating I have a problem with it's legibility. Guess that's off topic, though :) Ivan

I noticed that an ebay seller has listed multiple Raketa 'Cities' 24hr and several other model watches with various silver and other strongly coloured dials, listed as NOS, never used. I can't see how authentic versions of these watch could possibly be in such almost mint condition. I'm very much new to Russian watches but I am interested in 24hr Raketas. Are these franken/fake and to be avoided? Mechanical USSR watch Raketa"Time Zone" 24 Hr Silver dial Minerall glass | eBay

Need a check on this one:

15510987


15510988


The movement inside is 2609 NP (НП). Is it just me, or is the number 12 and the writing "Raketa" a bit skewed/tilted? Should it be like that?

So is this raketa copernicus fake or legit? what are things to watch out for spotting a authentic raketa copernicus, currently i'm looking for one.

Thoughts about this Poljot Alarm:

It's pretty weird looking, it doesn't say 'Poljot' anywhere, very few pictures (no back, no movement). Cal. 2612.1, but no further info (supposedly NOS).
