Poljot caliber 2612.1 is a Russian version of the legendary alarm clock caliber AS 1475 (AS1930), from the no longer existing Swiss shell factory Adolph Schild SA. It is the only Russian alarm clock caliber that was built in the 1960s. Unfortunately, these Russian signal movements have not been produced by Poljot since the end of clockwork 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 manual wind caliber is equipped with a Glucydur balance. Again, all axes are stored in synthetic rubies - even those of the alarm lever. At the end of the designation ".1" you can see that this is a work with accuracy "1. Class ". One cannot speak of the chronometer standard, but one can assume that this alarm clock wakes its wearer precisely at the desired time.

History of Poljot
This dates back to 1930. At that time the factory was called "First Moscow Watch Factory". The first movements of the new mass-produced Type-1 were made for the first time on an imported production line from 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 was the greatest success. Other plants such as the alarm plant Poljot 2612 and many more were produced. In 1990 the state of production was 5 million watches a year. Hundreds of employees made this possible. In 2004 Poljot had to go bankrupt despite a long and proud history. Many highly qualified employees lost their jobs at the time.
