Someone did indeed buy it :thumbsup:

Well done. I knew as soon as I'd ordered that K35 something else would come along. It was "good therapy" resisting temptation. (At least that's how I'm trying to convince myself) :yes:

Not really a USSR edition, but posting here nevertheless.

Thanks to @Kutusov and the Bay, here's something I've been waiting to get my hands on for a long time:

So many it's hard to point one, especially if you go with a used soviet one from ebay. They are getting old now and the latter soviet models might not be all that good to withstand the test of time, as the system was colapsing they were using cheaper metals, etc. I say you get a new Vostok Komandirskie or a Vostok Amphibia. Both affordable, both tried and true excellent watches.

Any one able to help me know more about this 3APR please?

The chap who sold it to me said he bought it of a waiter in a Moscow cafe,   

"do you want to buy a watch?".... whispered the waiter.

 

I would think it's a tourist type thing but 3 APR seem an okay brand?

My one has a Poljot 3105 movement and is an excellent timekeeper.
