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 :)
    Firstly, Welcome to the forum. You are correct: this would be a late/mid-to-late 60s and the sibling to the earlier Serif dialed version.(and someone, somewhere is cursing, 'not another bloody dial variant').

    Re: Show Your Strela!

    Firstly many congratulations on that rare piece Mark, it's a real beauty! If you got that cheap, then I really am green with envy. On the crown, it does look quite similar to the one on mine. A little hard to tell with camera angle and all that, but if it is the same crown, then I we may have some rethinking to do?

    Yours


    Mine

    Crowns look similar but not the same though. Pity. From end on they looked very similar.

    Yes, I think I agree, mine probably narrows in towards the stem more than yours - but it is hard for me to see...

    I agree that the crowns are different. I also agree that it's a wonderful find. I was watching this one and was pretty surprised by the price at the end of the auction. Given how long you've been searching for one of these, Mark, I would love to know what your top bid was -- and how much relief you felt when the last 10 seconds elapsed and the price held stable :)

    Congratulations!

    Oh I didn't watch the auction end - I went to bed. My top bid was on the high end (3x final cost in USD) but only because of rarity and the long hunt. And yes, I was pleasantly surprised (and relieved) when I saw the e-mail this morning. Now if only the rest of my day has been as good.......

    Now to find that damned serif version......

    Well, you're 50% of the way there at 1/3 your projected cost. I'd say you're doing pretty well :)
