I recently picked up a 12L at an estate sale, and have been on the search for a nicer example. I came across this one on another forum, from a reputable seller in Russia. I was told the watch is all original, with the exception of dial and hands being re-lumed. It appears whoever re-lumed the watch, imo, did an excellent job with the superluminova. Does this drastically hurt the value of the watch? Every photo shows the watch after it was re-lumed with an orange/ vintage like hue. The engraving on the back commemorates the officer's 25th year of service in 1944 with the Russian armed forces. I paid $300 for this one.
