The Strela LEONOV TRIBUTE LTR40CY is an advanced 10 ATM mechanical chronograph. The watch design follows the most well-known Strela 3017 worn by Alexei Lenov during the first spacewalk. Brushed sides, polished lugs, and bezel.
The subtle beige dial of the LEONOV TRIBUTE LTR40CY model resembles the look & feel of the most iconic vintage Strela model. Applied gold baton indexes. Golden hands. A retro Strela design carefully cultivated over decades.
NEW: The glass case back is now included (Since June 2021). The watch now comes with 2 case backs. With a mounted glass case back. Please contact us if you want the steel case back or the engraving case back (not included) mounted on your watch instead.
The watch comes with a highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and with a stunningly finished stainless steel case back. Engraved with the design of the preceding Poljot 3017 movement.
Movement: The ST 1901 by Sea-Gull (TY2901) is a very precise and strong running hand-wound mechanical chronograph caliber with 23 jewels. A smooth column wheel and a balance wheel that operates at 3 Hz (21,600 vph). A small second dial at the 9 o’clock position, and a 30 minute counter (accumulator) sub-dial at 3 o’clock. Finally, a sweep second counter mounted centrally along with the timekeeping minute and hour hands.
The Chronograph is controlled by two buttons. One (at 2 o’clock) for starting and stopping the chronograph, one (at 4 o’clock) for resetting the second and minute counters.
In conclusion, this chronograph is quite a fine mechanical timepiece.
