How do I identify Poljot models and movements?

Recommended Posts


Bought my first watch, purely because I liked how it looked, it was a windup and got fascinated with Russian watches. Thought it would be an inexpensive way to start learning. 

How do I identify the model and movement?


There is no serial number on the outside, the inside has the 17 Jewel inscription and the numbers 1252 and 37 stamped.

I cannot find reference to 1252 other than to a Poljot Strela 1252 Chronograph (is neither) and think that the 37 may refer to the hours per wind?

The dial has got “Made in the USSR” on it.

Thanks for the help.
