    Re: Show Your Strela!

    Hello everyone.....this is my first post on the forum so be gentle with me...lol...I have always been a bit of a watch nut , have a small collection of a dozen or so that I wear on a fairly regular basis....Chunky divers seem to be my "flavour of the month" at the moment...swapping between an Orient Mako and a SKX 007 as my daily beaters. Now the reason for a post in this thread.....way back in the mists of time....for my 13th birthday (1977....yes i know .....so old) my Dad bought me a watch....It stopped working after a decade of faithful service and got thrown in the back of a sock drawer.....I never seemed to have the heart to bin it...even though i presumed it was beyond economic repair...however......It seems the old thing may have some value after all......So ..as it has some history with me ...is it repairable ....One thing I have noticed is the hands appear to be wrong....although i am certain that it has never been repaired ...and i have owned it for the past 38 years...so a puzzle...

    Hands are indeed wrong, but by all means, get it fixed. All it may need is a service. Find a good watch maker. If you are in the UK Rytetimewatchrepairs.co.uk comes to mind. A well known collector Russ Cook, whose russian watch blog is wortha visit, has had them service his watches with good results.

    Rytetime seems closed at the moment.
    Watchguy.com may be worth a shot ...

    Hi SCI. How do I do this. And is it the number of the edition 319/1000. Or is it the S/N of the movement? Thanks:)

    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."

    Here my experience with my question:
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/kud...al-997893.html
    The serial number is the one on the case - 319/1000. You need to say which model is your Strela, because there were 2 modifications (white dial and black dial), each of them was produced in 1000 pieces.

    Hi all! One of mine very first generation 3017 Strela with central hand made for new. It is a great problem to find an original nowdays.

    Another update. I finally managed to find one of the missing Sekonda 3017 models. In 5 years of this madness I think I have only ever seen one for sale. Does that make it rare, or highly coveted, or, much like platypuses, unique to Australia (where this one will be coming from). No idea. So here it is - a non tele/tachymetre dial (seller's pictures). Everything looks original and a the 1MWF pentagon beneath the balance indicates early 60s. The overall is pretty good - some signs of wear and tear - but not too excessive. And the crown is the eerily familiar 'alternative' (?) crown (Geoff will now be checking his Majetek Poljot). And to add insult to injury - got it for cheap. Name:  image-715017654.jpg

    Re: Show Your Strela!

    Looong time lurker, after having seen this little gem I felt it was time to register...


    I have been into Strelas for a while now but never seen this kind of dial, I only knew of the Serif ones (which should be just as rare, IMHO): a Baton-hands/No-telemeter/Sans-Serif Sekonda is a premiere for me.

    If I am entitled to an opinion, I would date it around mid-to-late Sixties; if I am not mistaken the Pentagon stamp speaks of post-1964, and the font goes in the same direction.
    Could it be some sort of "missing link" between the Baton-hands/Telemeter/Serif dial shown as Model 68 and the Black-dialed/Paddle hands/No telemeter/Sans-Serif shown as Model 69 on the 1970 Sekonda Catalog?


    Many many congratulations and some envy for your great catch :)
