FS: Rare STRELA SEKONDA 3017 manual chronograph circa 1970

Hi, due large collection reduction for sale a very rare SEKONDA STRELA 3017, chronograph manual movement.
This chronograph is known also like “Soviet Speedmaster”, used by Soviet cosmonauts Leonov and Gubarev:
Manual, chronograph function Caliber 3017 (supposed derivated by Venus 150) 17 jewels with continuus seconds and 45 minute counter. Keeps good time and good power reserve, although I don't know anything about service history.
The case is chromium, without bumps, dings, shows signs of age and use (see pictures). Diameter is 36 mm.
Back cover is stainless steel. Plexy glass with some signs.
Dial is original, wonderful, with telemeter, tachymeter, writing SEKONDA and MADE IN USSR, without any sign, any faded, any humidity trace.
Hands appeared not matching for this model, but compatible with other Strela with WHITE dial (probably a swap in some watchmaker’s service in the past, since even these hands are very rare…)

This wristwatch is in amazing condition, functioning perfectly, keeps good time, regular power reserve.
I am a collector, not a commercial seller, so I cannot give any guarantee except as described.
Please look carefully pictures. Wristwatch as far as I know is fully functional and keeps good time. It is a wristwatch of more of 20 years ago.

For this very rare STRELA SEKONDA 3017 I ask 500€ (paypal add +5%, or bank transfer) shipping included.

The STRELA is located here in Italy. Due recent bad experience I cannot ship in Brazil, sorry.
I will not responsible of custom charges, lost in trasport (if you wish ensured shipping or DHL please ask)

I am "asquinet" on ebay and on many wristwatches forum. Feel free to ask any further picts or info.
You can contact me on or telegram, whatsapp at +39 3477978464. Thanks for visiting!
