I'd like some luck searching for a type 2... Again - no luck so far. Luckily I got a decent Type I to cheer me up. Back to the gold plated markings, I think they used to be black... I always wanted to have a decent K28 with the famous red markings, but when I finally got a very nice, mvery early Precision Class from 1959:Just a lack. Sometime it happens.
The Vostok that i have under my eye is marked 1979...i don't think serial number would be helpful, since it was not applied in chronological order (as far as i know).Probably after 1971 : I have a Vostok "Precision Class" with paper, stamped 12 07 1971. Movement 2209 n°73858, gold plated.
I don't think that is legitimate. Every Volna I have ever seen has lugs blended into the case:Hello! I.m new to this forum and i arrived here in searching for more information about russian watches. So, in my first post i would like to ask a question about a Volna watch wich seems to have a golden 2809 movement. As far as i read about identifing a precise 2809 movement, this seems to be one of them, besides the fact that is found in a Volna case, as you can see in the photos bellow. Is it the ONE?Thank you!
I agree with you, comrade. That "B" branded movement in the straight lug case with the baton hands was never made with a "Volna" dial like that. Second hand looks like a replacement, replacement, too.I don't think that is legitimate. Every Volna I have ever seen has lugs blended into the case:

Also, I'm almost certain that those hands are not correct for a Volna.
Finally, it's a general rule that Cyrillic/Latin are never intermixed on a dial, which sets off immediate alarm bells.
I'd wait for someone more knowledgeable to chime in, but I think this is wrong and would advise you to steer clear.
