This beautiful piece captivates at first glance with its sporty, elegant design and high-quality workmanship. The round stainless steel case is optimally sized and does not look too bulky on the wrist. The dial is laid out very clearly. This fact and the very good luminosity of the hands contribute to the easy readability of the time (even in the dark). The numbers and indices are attached and additionally provided with luminous material. The metallic BURAN logo can be seen in the upper half of the dial. The fluted bezel can be rotated and a point in time can be fixed using the red marking. All in all, a thoroughly classic and yet modern looking watch!
Poljot caliber 2612.1 is a Russian version of the legendary alarm clock caliber AS 1475 (AS1930), from the no longer existing Swiss raw material factory Adolph Schild SA This is the only Russian alarm clock caliber that was built in the 1960s. Unfortunately, these Russian signal movements are no longer produced since Poljot gave up the movement production.
Rare: The mechanical alarm tone is generated by a small hammer. The alarm tone lasts approx. 13 seconds and creates a mechanical rattle.
The hand-wound caliber is equipped with a Glucydur balance. Here, too, all axes are stored in synthetic rubies - even those of the alarm lever. The designation ".1" at the end shows that this is a movement with accuracy "1. Class "acts. Although one cannot speak of the chronometer standard, one can assume that this alarm clock will wake its wearer precisely at the desired time.

History of Poljot
This goes back to the year 1930. At that time the factory was still called the "First Moscow Watch Factory". The first movements of the new Type-1 for mass production were manufactured for the first time on an imported production line of the Dueber-Hampden Watch Company, Ohio. By 1952, production had increased to 1.1 million watches. The country should be supplied with good watches. The military and science needed more precise clocks. In 1964 the name of the factory was changed to Poljot (flight). The watch industry was not only a necessity but also a showcase project in the Soviet Union and Poljot became the greatest success. Other works such as the alarm plant Poljot 2612 and many more were produced. In 1990 the production level was 5 million watches a year. Hundreds of employees made this achievement possible. In 2004 Poljot had to go bankrupt despite a long and proud history. Many highly qualified employees lost their jobs at that time.
