    Thanks for pointing that out. Is this the one you're talking about? If so, it looks like "Strela" was printed but has almost completely faded away over time...

    Looking forward to seeing your new arrival :)

    Out of curiosity. Do any of you know the history of this NOS PI Strela, which is for sale at 485 euros at ebay. It looks exactly like mine and the one above. Its 40 mm and has a serial number X/1000. And a very cool strap. Is it a limited edition made before the anniversary watches above? Or is it later?

    From my favourite Mark Twain novel, which is about a guy who takes his beloved watch to a watchmaker from hell; " I tried to stop him—tried to make him understand that the watch kept perfect time. But no; all this human cabbage could see was that the watch was four minutes slow, and the regulator must be pushed up a little; and so, while I danced around him in anguish, and implored him to let the watch alone, he calmly and cruelly did the shameful deed."

    The images are pretty High Rez, and I dont see any traces. And its brand new with tags and all.

    By the way, has anyone noticed that the serif letter Л is mirrored, since the thin stroke normally belongs to the left while the thick stroke belongs to the right?

    Re: Show Your Strela!

    On mine the Л looks the same as on this sample. It seems original, just the СТРЕЛА text is really faded. The strap is btw the original one from Poljot-International. Mine is also completely new, while I newer worn it.
    Btw, regarding the Strela re-issues, there are several, done by at least 3 different companies. The one discussed here is the 1000 pieces limited edition Poljot-International, which is also the very first 3133 re-issue of Strela.

    Re: Show Your Strela!

    Congratulations, very nice! You can check the production date based on your watch S/N at Alexander Shorokhoff support. In this way you will know if re-lubrication/regular check is required or not. The model is from 2001, but for example my watch was produced end of 2011.
