Poljot T08 Tourbillon

I don’t recall where I read the advice, but one of the other blogs out there once wrote that you really need to have a Russian timepiece in your collection.  After all, they are infrequently encountered, but not rare in the sense that they are unaffordable.  My favorite sale-of-the-moment site, Touch of Modern (join through this link if you are not already a member), has a sale going on for Poljot Watches, with a selection of automatics and even an affordable tourbillon (above).

Now, the watches are currently made in Germany, so that takes a little cache out of the Russian moniker, but they do use Slava automatic movements, which are also used in the CCCP watch Patrick reviewed.  There are three watches at the lowest price point of $329, the most attractive of which, in my opinion, is the Red October 2, a 45mm diameter diver watch with a 100 meter depth rating.  There are also two pilot automatics for $329, and the Pioneer Automatic, which looks like it has an internal rotating bezel.
