This time I´m restoring an old russian Poljot watch.
It´s a soviet, gold-plated watch made by the first russian watch factory.
It´s powered by the Poljot 2609H caliber a hand-wind movement with 17 rubis and a shock protection. It beats with 21600 bph and the lift angle of the balance is 51°.

The watch is in bad condition: The gold-plating of the case is damaged, the glass is heavily scratched and the movement is running wild with more then -600seconds/day.

I need to polish off the old gold-plating. After polishing the case, it´s ready for a new gold-plating, i´m using 24 carat gold. The glass will be polished and the movement cleaned. The crown is damaged so i need to replace that one.

After everything is cleaned, polished and re-plated, I can re-assemble the movement with some fresh oil. After that, this watch is in a good beat (+10 seconds per day) again.
