STRELA 3017 nr. 0321

A true grail! After a tip of a good friend (also one of world's leading Russian watch collectors) I found this gem in non-working condition. A very early Cyrillic Strela with serial number 0321. One of the first Strela watches that came out of the factory in 1959. Totally original.

After sending it to one of the best watchmakers I know (Orlin your the best!) it came back in full running condition like it left the factory. When the sunlight hits the dial it gets that remarkable glow and makes the blue second hand shine like the sun. This one is hard to beat!
