    Once more, Meranom isn't more "outlet for the factory" than http://online.vostokinc.com/vostok/, https://shop-vostok.com/ or https://komandirskie.com
    In fact, the factory itself prefers http://online.vostokinc.com/vostok/ nowadays.

    What about Poljot? Any recommendations for 40mm and sites selling them? Thanks for helping. I promise to help you blow your money when it's your turn.

    Poljot is dead, simple as that. If you want to buy nowadays production with whichever movement they managed to insert into chinese case with a "Poljot" written on a chinese dial - there is really no difference which site you use.

    If you want to buy something from old stock - ebay is as good as any other platform you will manage to find them on.

    There are some very nice Sturmanskies and Strelas to be had out there, be prepared that they might be declared "serviced" but in fact will need a moderate service perhaps a year or so down the line but the chronograph's especially are super pieces and command a higher price because they are superb watches.

    A lot of watch repairers in the western countries won't touch Russian stuff, mainly due to parts problems and some lesser scrupled ones will try and gouge you for servicing if they do work on Russian pieces and there is a wealth of tutorial videos for those that decide that a couple hundred for an oil and clean and tweak is perhaps taking the mick a bit on a 2414A, one shop in Salisbury near where I live quoted me £200 to change the crystal on my Oskar-Emil Houston and I am like yeah thanks but no thanks lol (the company who made it will do it £30 including return post)
