    Non original crown, and i had to change the plexi for a taller one (it decided to split, did not want to risk an accident). Not the most common variant, I think.

    Once again, excuse the crappy phone pictures

Attachment 2129394 Attachment 2129410 Attachment 2129418 Attachment 2129426 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. Attachment 2129610

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. Attachment 2129850 Attachment 2129858 Then we have the 2 plain dials with baton markers. Once again poor, poor pictures brought to you by Apple i-Phone. Attachment 2129914 Attachment 2129922 Then the classic military Cyrillic tachy/telemetre dial favored by early cosmonauts. And found in both rounded and square lug case styles. Attachment 2129946 Attachment 2129954 And then it's civilian offspring - the rare ПОЛЕТ. Attachment 2129962 And then there is one more. I don't have it but I want it sooooo baaaad. One day........ maybe. The rainbow farting unicorn of Strela grails (image shamelessly borrowed from the Internet (but you guessed that because (1) the image is in focus and (2) I told you I didn't have it) Attachment 2130002 And lest it be ignored, the red-headed Strela stepchild from 2MWF Attachment 2130122 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 Attachment 2130082

    I feel strange saying this but...

    I love you.

    I don't find Rolex all that visually appealing TBH. Rugged solid tool watches but others are of a higher esthetic value IMHO.PP, JLC, VC, AP, ALS, Zenith, etc.
