New: with sapphire crystal and clear crystal back!
These Strela Chronographs belong to my very favorite russian watches - they have the very classic design of the 50´ies and are very comfortable to wear!
In the 50´ties till the 70´ties, Poljot produced the famous and popular Strela "Schaltradchronographs" with the brands "Poljot", "Sekonda" and "Strela". These Chronographs used the complicated mechanic caliber 3017 which is similar to the Venus movements. Fortunately, the russians remind themselves to this history and use this elegant 50´ties design for this new Strela watch series.
These rare watches are fitted with the well-known Poljot Valjoux caliber 31681 ( with 21.600 half rotations/hour, shock protection, 25 jewels and approx 48 hours power reserve ) , date between the position "4"-"5", screwed crystal back , slightly curved sapphire glas and an elegant stainless steel case with baguette-shaped push buttons and 39 mm diameter.
The white dial features a Tele- and Tachymeterscale, luminous hands and luminous indexes as well as the "Chronograph Class 1" signature. Poljot once differed between better watches for the Export-market and the watches for the sale within the Soviet Union. Nowadays there is no such difference, but they remind on this historical fact by using the "Class 1" signature for these new watches.
This is the new 1251B with additional 24-hour indicator at position "6" - it is similar to the 1251 - but it features also this 24-hour indicator and has therefore the Poljot caliber 31681 with 25 jewels.
This Poljot caliber 31681 is very rare now and will be sold out soon...Very interesting for watch collectors, too!
This watch comes with 3 high quality leather straps ! ( black, darkbrown and brightbrown - so you have the possibility to change the look of this watche easy yourself! )
