New edition of the famous Poljot Strela Chronograph - long awaited and now realized!
In the 50's to 70's Poljot in Moscow produced the famous Strela column wheel chronographs, 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 still available (see rubric Strela watches ) with Poljot 3133 caliber, there are now the brand new Strela 40mm chronographs with column-wheel caliber ST19 available!
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 ST19, with manual winding, approx. 45 hours 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.
This Strela Officer No. OF40CYM 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 pushers.
The white and silver dial of the OF40CYM version also corresponds exactly to the original - with applied silver numerals and indexes, the red tachy and blue telemeter scales and the Cyrillic lettering.
The old models were manufactured under the names Poljot, Sekonda and Strela, a distinction was made between a higher quality version ("Class 1") for export and a Soviet Union version. These differences no longer exist today, but as a small reminiscence of the "old days" these dials were printed with the label "Class 1".
