Cyrillic Poljot Cal ;3017 [Strela].






Just received this lovely early Cyrillic Strela, Minute Dial. From Boris.
Beautiful watch, running seamlessly.
I much prefer these elegant early 3017`s, compared to the later 3133`s.
They were produced during the very pinnacle of Russian watch making and design.
Many Thanks Boris.

Extremely Rare. Zarja Jump Hour Watch




Extremely Rare. Zarja Jump Hour, Cal`;2206.Pensa Movement.

Only 1500 of these watches were ever produced.[Possibly less]. One of the reasons they are so vanishingly rare is because they are very delicate, even in general setting operation. And are extremely difficult to repair.

The movement has a strangely constructed dust cover. I have not shown pictures of the movement, as i don`t want to disturb it to much. In fact, this is one of the few watches in my collection, i do not intend to wear, because of its vulnerability.

The watch, itself, is in simply stunning condition, and running and setting perfectly.
I must thank ,once again, Slava for a seamless deal, one of many over the years

An important addition, to the cpllection.
