    I went on their website. Some nice chronographs, but the prices they are proposing are unbelievable! €3,000 for a decent condition 1959 Strela? €1,150 for a nice Sekonda 3017? I mean, I know some sellers charge premiums, but that is just out of control.

    Yeah I noticed that as well.
    I don't know a lot about the 3017 chronographs but even I know that those are some VERY steep prices.

    Just for comparison's sake, this Tachy/Tele Strela KL 1 model, in much better condition, was recently available on multiple websites for under $700:

    Compare that to the €1,800 for the same watch. Admittedly, $700 would have been a great price, but still.

    Price high end, pitch low : “Soviet Caliber” — c’mon!
    Sounds like those German “soviet military rare authentic kgb smersh” one-offs...

    ((*)) now with Salisbury tourism junkets, strange I haven’t spotted GRU or ГУ watches yet...

    Yes we agree that the price is astronomically high, but it's still a nice looking watch

    I saw this NOS alarm watch with a columbus dial which finally sold for $92.52 on the bay. I was so tempted to buy this but in the end the bidding price became too high for me.

    I’m a child of the 70s. £20 for a Sekonda would have made you a laughing stock.

    This one was posted less than one hour ago on a Russian site -possibly the greatest jaw-dropping piece I've ever seen in my collecting career....

    I had one of these years ago in my early days of collecting, the Luch 3055. Seldom used tech, using a battery powered, quartz controlled balance wheel. A short lived period in between mechanical and pure quartz stepper motors. The quartz was cut to vibrate at 49,152 Hz, instead of 32,768Hz like all other quartz watches.
