Interesting Poljot History:

Poljot was a watch brand the 1960s. Poljot watches were produced by the First Moscow Watch Factory (1MChZ), which was established in the 1930s. Originally known as the First State Watch Factory, this watch manufacturer has roots that can be traced back to American clock and watch companies.

“…the Soviet government bought the defunct Ansonia Clock Company of Brooklyn, New York in 1929, and the Dueber-Hampden Watch Company of Canton, Ohio. It moved twenty-eight freight cars full of machinery and parts from the USA to Moscow in order to establish the factory. Twenty-one former Dueber-Hampden watchmakers, engravers and various other technicians helped to train the Russian workers in the art of watchmaking as part of the Soviet’s first five-year plan. The movements of very-early products were still stamped “Dueber-Hampden, Canton, Ohio, USA” (examples of these watches are very collectible today).” –source

Vice versa, after having created the 2416-A, there is a 2416-B too.
The A has 29 jewels, the B has 31 jewels. Ruusian watchmakers have developed both calibers.

The afterwards, ETA copied these beautiful calibers and started them branding as so-called swiss-made ETA 2824 and 2824-2 …

I have a gold-plated Poljot 29 jewel automatic I bought in Moscow in 1971. I assume it is 2416 movement.Unfortunately I have had to refinish the face dial and all the inscriptions were erased. I recently had to have the balance wheel replaced and the person who did it would not adjust the timing, so I have been doing it myself by trial and error. However in my latest attempt I somehow released the winding… Read more »
