Russian Poljot Chronograph Vintage Overhaul (3133)

Bought this watch a while back to complement my newer edition of this watch , it was delivered in a bad way and needed some work to get it ready to go into my collection. The watch houses a vintage Poljot 3133 23 Jewel Chronograph.

This movement is very similar to the swiss 7734 chronograph. This was due to the Russians purchasing the machines from its swiss watchmakers and improving on the movement as netent free slots improve each day.

First the watch was stripped down and each part was expected.  As you can see there seems to have been some moisture within the movement..

After the watch was disassembled, i worked on the rust and then thoroughly cleaned the parts (ran them through the machine multiple times)

After the parts were cleaned i replaced the mainspring and starting reassembling the base movement.

Once the base movement was tested and calibrated, the chronograph layer was reassembled.

The dial was attached along with the hands.  The chronograph was tested and calibrated and the all the functions were tested.

The movement was then recased.

The finished article, working and ready to be worn, very fond of the patina of the dial.
