    Okay: seeing as it is a lazy Sunday here: and as ever, apologies for the poor quality, iffy resolution phone pictures. Titan 3017: This was NOS from a Spanish seller who found a small supply of these buried in an orange grove or something ;) A couple of other forumers also managed to acquire this rare Strela variant from the seller.

    Poljot 3017s. A mixed bag. Some have had crowns or hands replaced (a common event) and their overall condition varies between life-experienced and pristine. I believe these encapsulate almost all of the known Poljot branded dials and subtle variants (font styles, high/low branding, pre-, post-12 "base"). But then again, I am probably wrong on that assumption....... Name:  image-4090436620.jpg

    The Sekonda 3017s. These pretty much mirror the Poljot branded 3017s in terms of styles and variations. Name:  image-2624283993.jpg

Size:  203.5 KB The most 'obvious' exclusions (because I don't own examples) are the high branded version of the black dial tele/tachymetre dial and the plain white/cream dial with baton markers Sekonda more commonly seen branded as Poljot or СТРЕЛА. That latter Sekonda appears to be rare or is highly treasured by its owners. But I do have this rarity: a non-tele/tachymeter black dial high brand Sekonda which I believe was only released as a Sekonda and never as a Poljot. Name:  image-596696748.jpg

    Finally, the Cyrillic Strelas/СТРЕЛА. Once again, apologies for some really poor pictures. I mean, these are embarrassingly poor. I know I can do better but......it's Sunday. I am lucky enough I have a few Cyrillic dialed Strelas in my collection including the rare 1959 of which there are actually 2 versions! Look at the Arabic numbers - see how they differ in thickness/width! Ha! Now watch that collective Soviet WIS OCD kick in. Name:  image-1780256251.jpg

Size:  448.8 KB Just not as sexy as Ms ПОЛЕТ with the paddle hands above. Please note that this little run of postings is not supposed to be definitive on vintage Strelas in any way; more a snapshot of my Strela OCD. I don't want to start thinking (again) about the subtle differences in dials that crop up (pre/post-12 base, spellings of telemeter/telemetre/Телеметр, etc). This sub-collection is still a work in progress. Several are in need of a little restorative work (crowns, hands, crystals), most could probably do with a service) but they all tick and keep good time. So I am happy and my OCD satiated for now. But then there are the missing variants. But for how long........... Oh, and here is a 3133 Strela. Lovely watch, good presence. A Strela on steroids Name:  image-2271589196.jpg
