Strela Chronograph Leonov Tribute LTR40CYM, 40mm, column wheel caliber, sapphire crystal.
Alexei Archipowitsch Leonow (russian Алексей Архипович Леонов, born May 30, 1934 † October 11, 2019 in Moscow) was a Soviet cosmonaut and the first person to leave his spaceship and float in space only secured with a rope (first spacewalk mission). Leonov held the military rank of major general.
This Strela LEONOV TRIBUTE follows exactly the design of the legendary Strela 3017 that Alexei Leonov wore on his first outboard mission.
Delivery includes a decorated, closed back and an additional crystal back - when ordering, you can choose which back you want to have installed at the delivery - the other back comes aside, too.
Including Strela pull-through leather strap and with an additional high quality handmade RIOS1931 leather strap of your choice (selection above, for pictures of the straps see picture gallery for this watch)
In the 50's to 70's Poljot in Moscow produced the famous Strela column wheel chronograph, caliber Venus 3017. The Strela chronographs are among the most beautiful watches from Russia, with their own design and a lot of history.
In addition to the Strela chronographs with Poljot 3133 caliber that are still available (see Strela watches), there are now the brand new Strela chronographs 40mm with column-wheel caliber ST19!
Just like the first Poljot Strela chronographs from the 1950s, these new watches use the beautiful column-wheel caliber again.
Strela obtains this high-quality caliber from Seagull, caliber designation ST19, with manual winding, approx. 40 hours of power reserve, 21,600 vibrations per hour, shock protection and 21 jewels. This caliber is a very reliable, accurate and durable movement. It is the exact replica of the Venus 3017 caliber - only with additional shock protection.
Hence the engraving 3017> ST19 on the back of the new Strela.
This Strela Leonov Tribute has a comfortable to wear stainless steel case with 40mm diameter, 14mm height and 20mm lug width.
10 ATM waterproof!
Strela also paid great attention to detail to ensure that the case corresponds to its famous predecessors - with a brushed side panel and polished lugs and bezel.
In addition, the typical baguette-shaped stop pusher.
The silver-beige dial of the LTR40CYM version also corresponds exactly to the original - with applied golden digits and Cyrillic lettering.
