A full manufactured automatic Russian Raketa watch that was successfully selling a year ago for USD 1600 is now available for the ones counting in dollars for USD 819. While a Swiss made automatic time keeper sold in Russia, during the same period increased its price from 51 000 Russian rubles to 154 000. It is now time for foreigners that may have hesitated a year ago, to buy a legendary Russian manufactured watch, as they purchasing power increase along with ruble depreciation.
Hello, hello As you might know I have been trying to sell my Seiko Presage so that I can put some money towards a new 3133 of some sort. I was scrolling through ebay and stumbled upon a German antiques retailer who sold some watches. I looked on their shop to see if they might on the off chance have anything nice, and the first watch I saw was a beautiful pre owned Poljot 'Ruslan' 3133 chronograph. I know it's bad form to discuss prices although I can say that I shot them an offer and got it for a very, very nice price! This piece was made to commemorate the Russian Antonov An-225 which I believe is one of the largest planes in the world. I think the watch dates to the mid to late 2000s and is numbered 1151/2000. It measures 40mm across but it wears like a 41mm because of the large crown and thin bezel. It is a bit scratched up in places (as to be expected from the price) so i'm going to get it re polished (If anyone knows anyone who can do such work i'd be grateful) After removing the case back, I found the movement in very good condition apart from some dirt on the chronograph seconds wheel. I dressed it up on a nice Condor Camel grain strap. Over all a beautiful piece, I am starting to get together a collection of 3133s so it sits next to my 44mm Sthurmanskie Strela in my watch box. Hope you enjoy the photos. Quite thick at 16mm
Good evening All, I just bought a cheap light tent to try to improve my watch photos. After a few experiments this morning, I'm pretty amazed at the difference it has made. It makes it much, much easier to get a good shot without ruinous reflections. Here are a few of the results. A couple of recent acquisitions plus two of my favourites.
