Sekonda 3017 [Strela] Back from Repair plus 14k Gold Poljot

Just received the Sekonda 3017 Chronograph back from Stephen Burrage,i posted previously about this watch,when i bought it,it was in a sorry state,very incomplete and not working.I was able to supply some parts,hands,one of which i will repaint at a later date,winding stem etc and sent it to Steve more in hope than expectation.
Once again Steve has worked a minor miracle,it turned out the movement had more problems than i at first thought,Steve managed to supply the extra parts and the watch is now working perfectly,keeping excellent time,chronograph resetting perfectly.
I am extremely pleased[another Strela saved from Frankenstein]and its all down to Steve's Patience and expertise.
  
I also received this 14k Rose Gold Poljot 29j Automatic Back from Steve,it needed a service and is now working perfectly.

  5. The solid gold versions are quite hard to find these days and much loved by collections, I think. If you got it at a good price, this watch will make for a nice investment, as well as a pleasure to wear. Congratulations!

  7. I have quite similar watch but the clock dial is slightly different. Any ideas when these were made or how much did they cost that time?

    1. Hello Allan,
      You have a good eye for watches.
      I have sold most of my collection now,but i still have an interest in Russian watches.
      These particular Russian cal;3017 watches,are becoming increasingly valuable,and hard to find in original condition.
      The various styles of dial were made from the early 60`s right up untill the seventies.
      When sold new,they would have been positioned amongst the budget lines,compaired to certain Swiss brands.
      That is not the case today.
      Best Regards,
      Russ
