TR42LAM Strela Chronograph 42mm
Caliber: Poljot 3133
Watchcase: brushed stainless steel
Dial: bright-golden - latin text
My favorites : The STRELA chronographs belong to the finest and most classic watches made in Russia! Besides the familiar , classic versions with 38mm diameter, there are now the long awaited, brand new models with 42mm diameter!
In the 50´s to 70's Poljot produced the famous Strela "column wheel" chronographs with the caliber 3017.
The actual produced Strelas are powered by the Poljot caliber 3133 which also becomes rare now and these new Strelas honour their famous predecessors !
This Strela version Nr. TR42LAM has the name TRIBUTE - the Chronograph has a massive, brushed stainless steel case with a polished bezel, polished bandconnections and pushers/crown. The detailled and perfectly finished watchcase has a diameter of 42mm ( with crown 44.8 mm ), a height of 14 mm , a weight of 90 grams incl. leather strap and a bandwidth of 22mm Complete lug-to-lug width is 51mm.
The baguette-shaped pushers and the gracile crown resemble exactly the old Strela models.
A slightly curved, scratch-resistant sapphire glass provides a clear view on the special brightgolden Strela dial. The dial of this Version TR42LAM is completely labeled in latin and shows a red tachymeter scale, a blue telemeterscale and very original gold plated Strela hands and Strela numbers/indexes! The stoppsecond hand is blue.
This old Strelas with 3017 column-wheel caliber never had a date indicator - this special Strela 42mm version Nr. TR42LAM is very close to this design. The date function was built out of the caliber and the dial is closed and therefore this Strela does not have a date indicator, too!
The polished crystal back is screwed, inscribed in cyrillic on the side of the glass and engraved with the serial number.
Very special: Poljot caliber 3133 with blue screws ! This robust Poljot 3133 manual winding caliber has 23 jewels, 21.600 halfrotations/hour , shock protection , and approximately 48 hours power reserve.
The models of the 60's were manufactured under the name Poljot , Sekonda and Strela - Poljot once differed between better watches ( "Class1" ) 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 on these new watches. In this version in latin under the word "chronograph ".
Delivery is including 3 additional RIOS1931 Louisiana Crocodile Calf leather straps in black and brown.
The Strela 42mm is one of the nicest novelties from Russia - only few pieces available !
