New 40mm edition of the famous Poljot Strela Chronographs - long awaited and now realized!
In the 50's to 70's Poljot produced in Moscow the famous Strela column-wheel-chronographs, caliber Venus 3017.
The Strela chronographs belong to the most beautiful watches from Russia, with their own design and a lot of history.
In addition to the still available ( see rubric Strela watches ) Strela chronographs with Poljot 3133 caliber, these new 40mm models are now the new version, again with the column-wheel-caliber ST19!
These new watches use - just like the first Poljot Strela chronographs from the 50's - the beautiful column-wheel-caliber. Strela gets this high-quality caliber from Seagull, caliber number ST19, with manual winding, approx. 40 hours power reserve, 21,600 beats per hour, shock protection and 21 jewels.
This caliber is a very reliable, accurate and durable movement. I have gained lots of experience with this caliber with the Seagull model 1963.
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 TR40CYS has a comfortable to wear stainless steel case with 40mm diameter, 14mm height and 20mm strap width.
10 ATM waterproof!
The watchcase is created by Strela with great attention to detail, so it corresponds to the famous predecessors - with brushed side panel and polished lugs, polished lunette and the typical baguette-shaped stoppers.
The watch has a wonderfully decorated, screwed back. The picture of the caliber is engraved on the watchback!
The white-golden dial of the version TR40CYS also corresponds exactly to the old models - with heightned golden numbers and indices, the red Tachy and the blue Telemeterscale and the Cyrillic inscription.
The old models were made under the name Poljot, Sekonda and Strela, while 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 reminder of the "old times" these dials were printed with the title "Class 1".
