    Chrono Poljot 3133 Moscow Rome

    I just received this chrono yesterday. I was a bit surprised by the "Made in USSR" which I hadn't noticed on the photos when buying it. So I decided to check for authenticity on the Polmax3133 website, where I was convinced I had seen it referred. I actually didn't find it when I checked this morning--looks like I mixed up with the Moscow-Tokyo one.

    A search for comparables on ebay returned several different versions and thus wasn't fully conclusive. So any help to identify/authentify would be welcome.

    What I bought: black dial/"Made in USSR"/"Moscow Rome'92" bezel/"Poljot xxxxx/10000" caseback

    I found only one piece of the ebay model 1, while I found numerous examples of ebay models 2 and 3.
    So I'd tend to think the original version is the ebay model 2, while the ebay model 3 is a legit but later reedition model.
    I'm pretty suspicous regarding the ebay model 1 (inconsistent Made in USSR marking for a 1992 watch) and my own model (same comment on the USSR marking plus only black dial I ever saw).

    As said, any comment/help appreciated.

    Here is some info from Juri Levenberg’s book. I hope it is useful to you.

    Thanks, quite helpful indeed.

    So it seems my case is one from the 2nd edition (the 10000 one).

    No clue about whether my black, USSR-marked dial is legit or not however. Same for the creme, USSR-marked ebay model 1 pictured above. As the quality of the dial for both looks very good, I find it difficult to believe these are fakes. The only meaningful difference I can see is that the Russian and Italian flags on mine look a bit wider than on all creme-dial models, ie. their edges seem to be closer to the subdials--might be a photo effect though.
