2nd MWF-CHK28-1 Chronograph Pocket Watch Added.

I have been looking for one of these Russian Navy Chronographs for some time,two things have stopped me in the past,price[as ever!]and originality.
This one hits the bulls eye on both counts,very original,and price was extremely reasonable,bought on e.bay using the offer process.
The 2nd MWF is better known as SLAVA and i look forward to receiving it from the outer reaches of the former Soviet empire,will be an important addition to my small Slava stopwatch collection.

Another Poljot 3017 Chronograph [Strela] Added

Just received this Beautiful 3017 Chronograph,virtually unmarked,keeps perfect time,as usual.
It has a late movement,so would have been made near the end of 3017 production.
I bought it through the offer process on e.bay.
The seller was an absolute Gentleman,and the transaction was seamless.
If you want to see all of my 3017 Chronographs,just scroll down the page on the right hand side..

Another Original 15j Sturmanskie added.

My favourite Russian Watch,i just cant resist them,if they are at a reasonable price[for an original Sturmanskie].I bought this under the offer system on e.bay,on the understanding it needed an original and more Sympathetic set of hands,[which i had].

I think there has been a gentle attempt to relume the dial numbers at some time,i don't mind that in the least though.Along with the aged dial,it just adds to its charm.

Its all original,correct hacking, date stamped movement[4m-31ya],pillow crown,dial and hands,keeps excellent time.

I now have three of these,all priceless,[to me],pieces of Russian Military history.

Pictures are before and after.

I will be putting a quality strap on shortly.
