Thin Times...Another Sekonda De lux, Cal;2209



Another Sekonda Cal 2209 with [correct] Luch Movement. Would have been made in the 70`s.

I bought this watch, for the grand sum of £27. The picture of the dial, does not do it justice. The dial is unmarked.

I did however change the case for a spare i had in better condition.

As i have said before these watches are extremely undervalued, would be very easy to base a collection on this movement.

Sekonda De Lux Cal;2209 Thin.



Sekonda de lux Cal;2209. Thin.

Sometimes the purchase of a simple cheap watch, gives me more pleasure, than any number of compressors or Anarktida`s...

I originally bought this watch, of a lovely seller.[Thank you the thriftygent.] To be used for spares for the Poljot de lux i am repairing. [I had forgotten, i had given away most of my 2209 spares to a chap in Arabia].

When i received the watch, what a lovely surprise. The watch is in excellent condition. Extremely original, including crystal and keeping supreme time.

Just reminds me why i love these Russian, 2209`s. So easy to wear, just a lovely, understated watch, and an absolute bargain. Needless to say it will not be used for spares..
