    No soiling of the thread with that one - a great reinterpretation of the classic.

    Hopefully soon sir UnknownSekonda., I'm just thinking about maintenance/parts problems as I don't know any watchmaker here who can help me here. I have tried to send a Strela 3133 for a fix to Germany and it took almost or more than a year to come back and it had me worried sick at first till I accepted that it was already gone but luckily it came back. Now I just use it at home, to church or special occasions for fear of damaging it again. hehe. How I wish I can at least learn to troubleshoot or adjust/fix watches like most of you sirs.

    it is great that there is a thread special for Strela in the worlds biggest watch forum! This is my first mechanical watch and i didnt even know that this timepiece had such big fanbase. I just bought it from a simple shop in moscow

    My advice- buy a watch that pleases you. Don't let anyone judge or tell you what to wear. Good cheap and expensive watches are no different between them. Both still can tell the time.

    What timing! I didn't even know this thread existed -- thanks for the bump. I'm happy to make a contribution, even though you've seen these photos before...

    Wow, that really makes the size difference between the original and reissue quite stark.

    Now I know why I can't find an original strela; the members of this community own the entire marketplace! Any suggestions on finding one other than ebay? Thanks to all for the great pictures.

    I think most members of this forum who have ever found a rare Soviet watch can empathize with the feeling that "this is impossible; there are none left; all the good ones are taken already; etc." But rest assured that if you are diligent, patient, and persistent, there will always be more to come :)
