It`s been sometime since I added to my Russian collection but I`m hoping (finances allowing) in the not too distant future to obtain a recently serviced white dialed Sekonda 3017 which is obviously far to small for it`s present owner :wink2: :P

I knew he`d see sense :P

Sekonda, Poljot cal. 3017 19 Jewels circa mid 1960s

I've seen that on the Saturday thread... Mach, I'm officially jealous of you and your whole collection... from the Burans to those Strelas, the Okean and Albatross Radio Room... :dummyspit:

Thanks guys, I am rather pleased with it :D

The only worrying thing is I`m begining to get the urge to find an old Strela to go with the Sekondas :o :lol:

No, that's a bad idea... you should replace one of the Sekondas for a Strela and sell the Sekonda to me... especially the black one... :angel_not: :whistle:

Nice one Alan, I love mine...

UralIMG_0075.jpg

BTW how did you come by the early `60s date for it?

The only reference I`ve come across at www.USSRwatches.info lists it as being circa "1951-50's"

Can't compete with you guys yet as I've only just started collecting, but it's great to see such nice watches to aspire to.

Like that!!... and I see you have one of those leather straps with CCCP on them... did it came already with the watch?

Cheers Mac, looks good with the light coloured dial.

I just thought 'early 60s' was close enough :wink2: The Russian watchseller who I bought it from reckons production was 1957-1964. He also gave me a great link to a 1960 Soviet watch catalogue - they appear on pages 156 - 158. http://german242.com/books/ussr_catalogue_1960.pdf

Yes, it came with the strap as well as a leather glasses style wallet also stamped with Mig29 & CCCP logo's. Strap not original to watch as it has a gold buckle rather than chrome to match the watch. Seen a few similar ones around, but none of the others have had the exposed date dial, so either it's quite unusual or I've ended up with a franken. Not particularly bothered as I love its style.
