Another Poljot 3017 [Strela] Chronograph,For Restoration/Repair.


I have said before,i had a collection of parts and incomplete 3017 chronograph watches,which i had accumulated over the years,i have used various parts to keep other 3017`s going,i did make another 3017 up from parts,as reported on previously[a lot of hassle!],i have also donated parts to collectors who were in need.
I have now managed to locate and bring together all of my parts collection,and decided to make a complete Chronograph,for restoration.The watch is running,all be it,erratically, the chronograph function is not working correctly,the wath would have been manufatured circa 1973..
I will be tentatively sending the watch to Steve at Rytetime,as usual, for repair,and no doubt testing his good nature once again,[in a good way],he has become used to me sending him complete, basket cases.
This will be an ongoing project,and will not be finished in a hurry,will report on progress over time.
