Poljot Buran

Classic Buran dial

The new Buran brand chronographs first appeared in the '92 catalogues but were probably on the scene for at least one year previous. Besides the well known coin-edge bezel casing, this dial was also available for a short period in the square casing with sport bezel as shown.

More than likely, this new Poljot brand was named after the Buran spacecraft, rather than the strong wind "Buran" that blows across the Soviet steppe; which the spacecraft was named after.
