|894: Gents Poljot Manual Wind, Flat, ca. 1965|
Case: Swiss Made - steel back screwed with ring nut, D=31mm
Dial: Swiss Made - silvered, applied logo, digits and markers, luminous dots
Movement: 1368107, Cyrillic: 1st Moscow Watch Factory (Poljot), 23 jewels - calibre Poljot 2209, gold plated, 23 jewels, Poljot shock protection. Unique design (archive photos Fig.4, 5): With an intermediate wheel A between central minute pinion B and a separate minute wheel C the complete train is moved to the periphery (Fig.5). And due to the indirect sweep second, there is also no second wheel in the center. Thus neither balance nor barrel is overlapped by any wheel, and the complete height is avalaible for barrel and balance. The result is a rather low profile without reducing sturdiness or accuracy.
Condition: C2, B0, D1, M1, service recommended
Maybe exaggerated, regarding 3mm movement height, since there were flatter movements when this was lauched in 1961. But these had a sub second or none. This calibre was also made without sweep second, and this was with 1.85mm scarcely higher than the small scale produced Frederic Piguet 21, which is with 1.75mm still one of the flattest today
