    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    The gold plate is pretty decent nick, just a little worn at the end of the lugs

    When did this case design and the 2209 movement get transfered from Luch to Poljot? Trying to work out when it dates from

    not sure but if you can open it the markings on the movement should tell you all

    Since the case is identical to the Sekonda, I'm positive this is the Luch / Poljot 2209 in its 23 jewel glory. Did that originally start in the First Watch Factory?

    Apparently the bit you can sod up in a movement is right by the notch in the case for opening the back ie not to be done by clueless folk like me

    I'll see if skywatch supplied me with an inside photo
