That Girard Perregaux is epic.

If you were to pick one watch magazine for a subscription, which would it be? Watch Time, IW, or something else? Or is this sort of like comparing GQ and Details (i.e., they're basically interchangeable)?

I think I'd picked Watch Time or Revolution if I had to chose!

Agreed. The quality of iW is questionable. Watch Time and Revolution is definitely the two to get. Revolution's approach tends to be a little more racy with its women and watches photo spreads.

No serious doctor needs a special dial to measure the pulse using a wristwatch.

No one needs a watch that tells them the phases of the moon, can survive to 12,000 ft, or has a yacht countdown timer either

I got one that I don't really know at all. Maybe one of you can help out? It says "Poljot CHRONOGRAPH 23 Jewels, made in russia". It's handwinde.

Is this an original Poljot? Do you happen to know when it was made? As far as I know, they are not being made anymore... Unfortunately I do not know much about Russian watches but, if I'm not mistaken, what you have there is the USSR version of the "moon watch"; the Russian equivalent of the Omega Speedmaster. I think you might want to show it to the guys over at Timezone.com...

Hi emakris, thanks for the quick reply. I believe it's an original Poljot. But you know what they say about believing... I just got it a few days ago from a friend who bought it in Russia several years ago. I don't have any clue when it was made, so actually that's part of my inquiry. Regarding your hint with timezone.com - I actually just posted it on watchuseek - but will look into timezone.com as well. I hope they don't mind crossposting ;o.

If it's marked "Made in Russia" it's obviously post-Soviet. The older ones are marked "Made in USSR".

I'd guess it's 10 years old, or so?

Thanks for the tips. I had not heard of Revolution, but I checked out their web site and it looked interesting. My subscription is on the way.

In case it is written "Made in Russia" - it is a post-Soviet watch.
Poljot is still producing its watch in Russia. I do not know actually about the quality.
The retail price starts at 150$ and goes up to nearly 10.000$ for limited editions in gold.

How do you guys take such epic pics??? Do you have DSLRs?

Anyway, I'm glad I can finally contribute to this thread with my humble offering! Still learning how to use my new digital camera so excuse the sub-standard picture quality.
