    Yeap, it's pretty much a Breitling Blackbird

    The case back is one of the coolest of all the Russian watches I've seen!



    It's not a very good picture but the centre with the Russian Airforce logo is heavily brushed like the rest of the case, the edge is polished. So even looks like it's a bi-metal back, with the centre looking like a darker steel, almost titanium.

    It won't be discontinued... It has already been discontinued early this year! Maktime isn't producing anymore and the employees have been sent away! There's about 2 years of 3133 stock for normal production but the movement price is going to get higher, starting on January 2012.

    Whatever comes of it, I just hope the tools and caliber don't get bought by the Swiss or you'll have a 3133 exactly like the one from Maktime (and probably made by the same people and same place in Russia) but costing 5 times more. They might through in some movement decoration to let you have the illusion it's something much better than it used to be...

    Why would they buy back their own, 30 year old tooling and machines?

    They weren't exactly in the first flush of youth when they sold them in the first place

    They are not the same... the 3133 might have started from a Valjoux 7734 but it's a better and improved caliber. So much so that you can't use many parts from one on the other.

    ...and not wanting a cheap, tough, reliable mechanical chronograph movement that costs peanuts to produce? Sure they would...

    Conspiracy theories:
    The Swiss wouldn't buy it (and by Swiss we're talking Swatch Group/ETA), they'd want the 3133 to die a quiet death-- it's competition for their own movements. Or they might buy it to ensure no one else revives it-- Swatch Group has certainly used similar tactics before.
    Sea-Gull might buy it-- they're buying into a lot of the European watch industry in a move to have more visibility in western markets-- of course, they'd might want the 3133 to die as well, as it's too similar to Sea-Gull's own ST-19 chronograph.
    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.
