Post Frankensteining Sturmanskiestein
So, I wanted a 24 hour watch. Ordered one off ebay. Out of Ukraine. My theory was that the watched looked goid, the movement looked good. The case didn't look cheap. Must be ok.... I was wrong.
It was a poorly converted 12 hour movement 2609.HA.
The hour hand slips. Never figured out if it kept proper time.
It was definitely one of those kick me moments. My 24 hour Sturmanskie was really Sturmanskiestein. A fake.

So what to do? Put it where it can't be seen for a year, pull it out and decide it's worth saving.

With no watchmakers with Russian knowhow here, I decided to give it a heart transplant. I'd put a ronda 515.24h quartz GMT in place of the 2609 handwind.

They are almost the same size.ImageImageImageImage

Now, I bought hands, but am still waiting on something I can replace the gold with.

I also had to shave the movement spacer because it was interfering with the hands. Now, i need a spacer for the dial.... Or do I?

I decided to order a custom dial to replace the fake. It's going to be a 2 piece, so hopefully it won't need the topside spacer.

So in the new year, I hope to have a new face on Sturmanskiestein.

This is the dial I will be using. I'm thinking grey center, white outer ring(top layer), and yellow/green bottom layer. Contemplating the base colour after looking at render.
(Note... The 24 hour numbering on the dial is complete ) ImageImage
