    No biggy to me, but, I think this section is reserved/dedicated to post watches already in your collection . You will find a section dedicated to get ID/opinions on watch(es) you are considering and where all the 3017 lovers will be very happy to help you acquiring a nice specimen.
    Agee on all the above. Fake. But we all wish we can find such great originals.....

    Hello Comrades,

    after weeks of waiting for the needed spare parts i can show you the newest piece of my collection:

    I bought it online from Slovakia for a real bargain price because the seller said it was defunct since the crown and winding stem were loose and could not be tightened at all.

    The problem was that the part No. 443 was broken completely and the screw holding it also was defunct.
    I could find that spare part in original packaging online (in Australia), replaced everything yesterday and gave it some new oil too.
    The watch works perfectly now, also the stopwatch and reset of the pointer are exact.

    As for the optics, the watch looked pretty used when i bought it (as you can see in the picture). However, polishing the crystal and a very tender cleaning of the dial was all it needed.
    I think it looks really nice and the old watch strap fits perfectly.

    Something new i learned was that the "КЛ 1" on the dial, written below the 19-jewels-mark, is a sign that this movement underwent special testing for precision (thanks to "sovietwatchmuseum" on instagram, i highly recommend you to have a look at the collection there).
    I was curious about who owned this special exemplar. Unfortunately the eBay seller could only say that it was previously worn by a Czechoslovak army colonel, but who knows exactly which road this watch has taken since the 60s...

    Anyways, i really am happy about having found this Strela, and for a good price.
    I don't want to keep it stored in a box but really wear it in daily life. Of course i will treat it carefully and preserve it but still, I never saw the point of having watches that are too expensive or rare to really use them in the way they were initially intended to be used.
