I found in an auction this beaten up Russian watch. I am rather fond of the movements so I thought I make a bid and take my chances.
Here is what I received:
|Van Poljot Olympics 1980|
After I opened it up and dismantled the watch, I found a fine russian Poljot movement.
The dial has suffered over the years, but still has its charmes. It turns from eggplant purple to brown, depending on the reflecting of the light.
After polishing the case, changing the crystal and buffing the hands it turned out quite nice.
The movement has had an overhaul and is ticking like in its glory days.
