Early Poljot 3133 with Cyrillic sans-serif logo and original lume - you can see especially at 7 and 11 indices the 'two-blob' technique.

Hands are a later addition (I think the orange second hand came off an OKEAH ...)

Love the mesmerising guilloche work on the sub-dials.

i saw this on the bay not seen one like it before what do you think? Its not one ive seen before, it looks to have a mineral crystal rather than acrylic...so it must be newer than it appears. Not a 5 nice case shape and the brushing looks original. s-l1600.jpg 

 

its a bit like a helmet shape

Cracked it......some of these movements came without the “excentric regulator” fitted into the hole and Lanco get a particular mention...thanks Ranfft ....my fault should have read a bit further on!

I would guess it made them a little cheaper.

Does make fine adjustment easier but you work with what you've got.

Nice Watch I saw that one and had more than one look at it.
