NEW! The Strela Chronograph Officer OF38CYGS with golden hands and numbers with Sapphire crystal!
Poljot caliber 3133 - made in Moscow
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 new watches are fitted with the well-known Poljot Valjoux caliber 3133 ( with 21.600 half rotations/hour, shock protection, 23 jewels and approx 48 hours power reserve ) , date at position "6", screwed crystal back , slightly curved Sapphire crystal and an elegant stainless steel case with baguette-shaped push buttons and 39 mm diameter.
The white dial features a nice blue tele- and red tachymeterscale, golden hands and golden numbers / indexes, also guilloched sub-dials and 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 watch is cyrillic signed.
This watch comes with a Strela leather watch-box and without extra costs with 3 RIOS1931 high quality leather straps ! ( black, darkbrown and brightbrown, so you have the possibility to change the look of this watch easy yourself )
This is the now very rare STRELA Officer with golden numbers/indexes and golden hands - very similar to the old Poljot Strela of the 60 ´ies. This rare Strela is one of my alltime favorite watches from Russia.
You can find all Strela watches in the rubric "STRELA watches" !
