    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 [​IMG]

    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! [​IMG] Still learning how to use my new digital camera so excuse the sub-standard picture quality.
