USSR chronograph info


Question

Hi all,

 

just brought this chronograph from eBay and it’s the first ussr watch I’ve got...

 

I got it because I thought it was fairly cheap... £40... and I liked the dial / hands lume.

I can’t find anything about it or how much it’s worth..

 

can anyone please enlighten me..

Looks like a nice find for 40$, the movement is like you already know “based” on a Valjoux 7734 which in turn is based on the Venus 188 layout hence the similarity. All of them have a Cam driven chronograph instead of the column wheel you for example can see in Valjoux 72. This solution was created out of cost effectiveness, since they now could be stamped out of sheet metal, like many of the hammers and levers too.
Yours look to be A nice little piece from the late 70's and will be a gem when serviced. Guess the Poljot 3133 is one of the High-End Russian watches so there is probably a ton of information out on the web.

Hi there. Just received the watch in post...

Thanks both for your help, however, I’m really struggling to put a round about date on this watch. Can’t see anything similar anywhere, Shape and colour wise I mean... does anyone have any ideas

I suggest you ask in the "Q&A Expertise thread: Is this watch legit or a franken?" It has a ton of extremely knowledgeable "comrades" on Russian watches. Some of the members seem to know 50 year old Russian catalogs by heart.

I took a look at the web when I saw this still was here, despite the watch seems to be older the serial number on the bridge seems to say it was produces somewhere between 1996-1997.
There is an excelent site helping with dating these beasts here..
