Black Dialled Cal 3017 [Strela] for repair.


Another one for repair,like the Cyrillic Strela in the previous post,this watch has been lying in my repair box for many years,it was bought years ago as a parts watch,but i have managed to make another complete watch,[i am awaiting a crown,arriving soon on an old Pobeda 15j].
This dial has a different serif type on the dial,compared to my other complete black dialled watch.

As ever,both watches will be on there way to Steve Burrage,soon,will update on progress.

Cyrillic Strela awaiting repair


I am still carrying on with my aim of restoring all of my parts watches and non-runners.This lovely Origina Cyrillicl Strela,with correct movement,and early Round lug case,has been on my to do list for some time.I have finally sourced the parts required,[Hands],it runs,[erratically],and will be sent for Service.

This Strela,is slightly different from my other,in that the outer Telemeter ``base`` mark is on the left of 12 and not on the right hand side,this is quit correct,they came on either side.

I will update on progress.
