I just got the Invicta, and a nice watch it is! I'll take some shots of it pretty soon, but for now I wanted to post my contribution to the thread.

Behold! A very fine and rare Poljot 24-hour watch!:

It's a watch I got from a fine fellow as a karma back at BDWF, and it's a very fine and rare example of the Poljot export line. It's a 24 hour watch, meaning the hour hand goes around once in a day as opposed to twice; these are said to be popular among the military and people in Europe, who have issues with dealing with the concept of AM and PM. It's a handcranked movement:

Image

And, unusual for Russian watches, isn't burdened with the horrible non-quickset date. I've worn it a few times, but as I'm not the brightest bulb in the box, I always had issues telling the exact time because of the math thing of adding or subtracting 12 from the PM side of things.

The TV-style case--which is incredibly fine and very rare in Russian watches (the last man to wear one was Krushchev, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, when he wasn't pissed-drunk) measures just shy of 40mm including the crown, 36mm north to south, 44mm corner to corner, and an incredible and very rare and fine 9.35mm in thickness, which is almost unknown among watches made, for instance, by Invicta. The lugs appear to be about 20mm, measured by my incredibly fine and very rare calipers, purchased for $10 from Lowes.

Here's a shot of it next to my extremely fine and exceedingly rare OS300:

Image

The strap is rather short, and probably not very rare or fine enough for guys with wrists above 7.5 inches. It comes with a very rare and super-fine wooden Poljot box and papers too, for those who can't figure out how to set a 24 hour watch and wind it about 40 times.

Most importantly, it's O'Brian approved!:

Anyone interested, reply to this post, goddamn it! This very fine and pretty rare Russki won't last long.

And now, submitted for your approval, the following from Deep Blue:

- Stainless steel case is about 42-43mm in diameter
- Japan quartz movement
- Very comfortable black rubber strap w/buckle closure
- Black ppd unidirectional bezel
- Lume is provided by tritium tubes mounted on the hands and inside the 'stadium' style chapter ring at all hour positions; provides uninterrupted, 24-hr lume; light green color, except for the red lumed tube at the 12 o'clock position. (Only other lume is superluminova on the tip of the seconds hand and on a small 'pip' at 12:00 on the bezel.)
- Comes with original zippered case.

This was probably the most reasonably priced watch with tritium tube illumination ever offered. It's very light and comfortable on the wrist, and looks great there, as well.

Please PM with any questions...
