    Unfortunately it looks like those pictures were cached! The auction seems to have ended in 2014. It seems to be by far the nicest example I've seen.

    Extremely RARE 1MCHZ POLJOT ПОЛЕТ 2200 14k Solid Gold Wristwatch Soviet Legend | eBay

    Looking through some older auctions I found yet another 2200 offered for sale at about half the price last year as well! I do believe these are more common than people suspect.

    (Pictures aren't great)







    As a bonus, I also stumbled across this other rare item in a different auction as well:

    Too bad. The 2200s don't turn up very often. Much like the Valjoux 61s.

    Last time I posted an expired auction for a Tutima Kirova and within 24 hours koutouzoff landed his very own on a tip from a fellow forumer.

    Perhaps the same will happen again.

    I question whether this "Chaika" was made by Chistopol as a commemorative of Valentina Tereshkova as the movement indicates (no seagull graphic, though) or is it out of Uglich originally using the 1601 17 jewel sub-second replaced by the k26? What movement does yours have, mvmt?

    Notice how "shockproof" statement is divided in two by second hand.

    I'm betting that ZIM case is a replacement. I believe that Chaika was the precursor to one of the below Vostoks, meaning the movement is likely Chistopol in origin.

    Yes, probably a replacement for its original gold case harvested for scrap gold. I just wondered if it was from the Uglich factory and therefore a Chaika brand watch, or from Chistopol and therefor a Vostok commemorating Tershkova. After seeing your Vostoks its clear to me it came from Chistopol as a commemorative.

    Chaika was one of the brands owned by Chistopol, so it's possible to cause some confusion. After all, Chistopol is the only one manufacturer who added the xx05 specification, I believe no other managed that.

    I hadn't realized that about the xx05.

    Balance looks like it could withstand a direct hit. I wonder what the terminals are for. Is this some kind of hybrid?
