Poljot Komandirskie

Submarine Commander

Yet another reissue of the Komandirskie chronographs appeared on the scene in 1996. This time with the classic Vostok Amphibian-style bezel. I'm not sure which group inside of the 1MWF was responsible for producing them, but they are very unique and the quality is good.

Besides the sub-commander, there are also Parachutist and Tankist version of this chronograph. All are pictured in Collectors' catalogue #8 by Juri Levenberg.

Quality screw down stamped case back

The "Made in USSR" was more than likely an attempt to mislead collectors, but it could also have been an emulation of the original case back. It would be interesting to see the original papers that came with the watches.

The original and '96 naval Komandirskies

Both are in "as new" condition, and as such are very rare pieces.
