Trio of Czechoslovakian Issued Watches. "Majetek Vojenske Spravy"

thought i would put a post together with all three of my czechoslovakian issued watches.

honestly didn`t think i would ever find the shturmanskie variant. they make a fine set.

as far as i am concerned i won`t be looking for the strela version. i am not convinced of their authenticity. the only so called czechoslovakian strelas i have seen are clearly, rather painful fakes.

i am always open to correction, of course.

aplogies for lack of capital letters on this and previous post. i am using a new chrome note book and i am buggered if i van find the capitals key.....

a great addition to the collection.

Extremely Rare. Czechoslovakian Issued Shturmanskie. "Majetek Vojenske Spravy".

have just received this extremely rare czechoslovakian issued 15j shturmanskie.
it has the correct issue number and majetek vojenske spravy case back.
you never see the two types of issue markings together,[case back and dial marking].

i bought this watch off the same european seller i bought the moskva and poljot 23j from.
he really is a top notch collector.he recognised the watch, first picture has the wrong central seconds hand and crown. so supplied a donor pobeda for correct parts.

i took the opportunity whilst changing central seconds hand and crown to re lume the minute and hour hands with vintage type lume.

these watches really are hard to find. i have been looking for several years now. with a notable false start when i was badly let down by a seller that never supplied the watch i had paid for.

really cant thank the seller enough, for his knowledge and help with this watch.

Extremely rare addition. Soon.

Will soon be updating the site, with an extremely rare addition. I have been trying to get one for a long time, including a costly non appearance. This watch will make a "set".

Pobeda Cal;2608 15j. Rare blued [Shturmanskie] Hands.

Been searching for this uncommon type of Pobeda, for many years. I already have one, but the dial is in poor condition.

I have often thought a precursor to the 17j Shturmanskie,[it has the same hand set, often removed], The movement, [Cal;2608] however, is non hacking.Made 3rd Q 1956.

These watches deserve to be better recognized. I have been wearing it for a week. Easy to read, nice size and as is normal with this bomb proof movement, very accurate.

This was cheap, bought of a great seller another fine addition to the collection.

Mockba 15j and Poljot delux 23j Thin Received

Just received these two lovely watches from a seller new to me from Europe. He has some absolute gems. He is a very knowledgeable and friendly chap to deal with.

The Poljot i am afraid i bought, having been beaten by the Poljot delux i was trying to repair in an earlier Post. Its a lovely watch [Poljots finest period, late 60`s early 70`s] in great condition running sweetly.

The other is a little gem. A Moskva 16j in beautiful original condition. Rare to find this particular dial type in such fine condition.
