    Re: Show your 3133!

    Well, of the two worst case scenarios, I hope Seagull gets it. Best case scenario, another Russian company will pick it up. And there's also the possibility of some German company getting it, there are quite a few ones that use Molnija and Poljot 31xx movements (POINTtec, Poljot International...).

    The ST-19 is a great movement (when it comes from the Seagull assembly line and not some backyard tinker shop) and it's the logic replacement for the 31xx. But I still would prefer a 3133 made by underpaid grown men than an ST-19 made by ridiculously underpaid children who should be at school. Well, I'm sorry... it's an emotional subject...

    I'm curious to see how it all unfolds. Maybe the prices will be driven up over the next few years and they can continue in Moscow.

    They will go up, that's a given! Now is the time to get all the 3133s on your wish list... They all went up on my list and are now a priority. I'm still missing 2 or 3...

    Re: Show your 3133!

    Same here, hoping to get the 2 or 3 i want very soon.
    Was just wondering though, is this end of production specific to the 3133 or will its cousins 31681 etc be affected also?
    Couple of those i want too:(

    The entire 31 series, from 3105 on up, is affected by this.

    If it is true that this is the end of MakTime 31.. production, I imagine it would be for all of the 31.. variants.

    I'd like to know if MakTime has already gone bankrupt, or if they have temporarily stopped production in hopes that a) someone will invest in the company, or b) the prices will be driven up. It may make more sense to buy the machinery after the company has gone bankrupt, if it hasn't already, and start a new company, rather than invest in the old one.

    It's like Mike said and that's why I call these caliber 31xx (replace X by any number). For example, the 3133 is a 3105 without the chrono. Every variation, with more or less complications, is based around the 3133 and made by the same people (Poljot, then Maktime).
    It's not all lost, there might be someone picking it up but I have no news regarding this. Still, I have the impression there was going to be a decision made early next year or so I was told. That's all I know but I assume by that that there are people looking into it or that Maktime is trying to pass along their production rights. The thing hasn't been totaly dropped yet...
