    Re: Show your 3133!

    Dr Bob: that picture you have of the difficulty in telling the time is exactly why my two 3133s - which I love, BTW - suck when it comes to seeing the hands, especially in certain lighting or when the hands are near each other (ie 1:10 or 7:40). I guess if pure legibility was the only intention, everyone would be wearing dive watches.

    One thing about the dial, 'though, I generally dislike busy dials (a la Breitling), but something about yours just WORKS! And that movement - thankfully it has a glass back, although I can imagine staring at that side instead of the front. Fantastic pick-up! Congrats.

    Just in, a Junkers 6226-2. The lume is T25 tritium so it should be fairly good.

    Actually, I'm not that much of a fan of the white, non-patterned subdials on the black dial but my reason for purchasing this watch is in the back:

    The Maktime stamp can be seen there, in place of the Poljot crown:

    One more shot of the dial; maybe I'll learn to like it.

    Re: Show your 3133!

    In contrast to the beautiful and clean watches of this thread, here is one of mine :

    Name:  DSC_4412_post.jpg

    I bought it for parts, mainly for the clean dial, to unfranken a stainless steel Sturmanskie I have. It is badly put together: the bezel does not rotate, the crystal looks glued to the case, the case itself is rotten and shows green corrosion at the back, it lacks some retainer screws and the movement floats a bit in it; a piece of black rubber is even glued to the inside of the steel back to keep the movement in place ! .

    Despite all this it keeps good time and the chrono pushers are functioning very smoothly, it is a pleasure to use. It would really be a shame to let it go to waste or condemn it the the parts bin . The movement is clean, marked SU 3133, it has the newer white alloy balance wheel, so it should have been produced at the end of 1992. I may just put it in a NOS plated case from an Italian ebay seller : it will make a very nice Sturmanskie civilian reissue, roughly period correct, and it would cost me around 100 euros for the total. I'd like a steel case, but I do not know how to find one.

    Did anyone saw an uncoloured inner bezel like mine before? Also, I rarely saw those hands with green lume and blunted (not pointy) tip...

    This just goes to show how, while we may revere and respect our watches (older vintage models, especially), other non-watch people don't care one iota about taking care of them. It also goes to show that the 3133 movement is a pretty tough customer, considering how well it functions after all the beatings it clearly took over its lifetime!
