Poljot Amphibia [Dolphin] For Restoration Received.



Just Received this Rare Poljot Amphibia Dolphin Diver,from the late 80`s.Bought of a very nice chap,thank you Steve.I bought this watch with my eyes fully open,with a view to restoration.Several of these Poljots have come onto the market over the last year,all with Okeah casebacks,i can only think there has been a supply put together out of spares,or even in the later and last stages of factory production,they were put together at the factory?.Who Knows.
But, i have decided to restore,does`nt really matter how long it takes.Luckily i have an original plain caseback for this watch,which i will fit.The large central seconds hand is wrong,difficult to find another,Juri Levenberg produces a new watch with the required hand,i contacted his company,i got a pleasantly prompt response back, to say he didn't have any spare hands.I am now pursuing a lead in Poland.
The rest off the watch is original,including cal 2627 Automatic movement,the crown does not screw down.
I will update over the coming months.

  3. Hello,

    I am offering a Poljot Amphibia Dolphin for sale.

    The watch was bought in 1988.

    It has been worn only very little and was recently cleaned and oiled by a
    professional watchmaker who also replaced the seal.

    There are some minor scratches on the case back, but the front
    is in a flawless state.

    Interested?
