Soviet chronograph from 1st state factory to Полёт:

From left to right:

Valjoux 61 without radium
Valjoux 61 with radium
Urofa 59 with diamond dial
Urofa 59 with 1mwf kirov dial (Mischa's 59)
Civil urofa 59 with blue hands
Civil urofa 59 with golden hands
3017 with original стре́ла dial
3017 with Полёт dial

I really like the transition from the civil urofa 59 to the 3017 original dial.

Thank you very much for sharing! Two stunning examples of two of my favorite watches.

It always makes me very happy when I learn such exquisitely preserved specimens are safely in the hands of fellow collectors.

Hello friends, I hope you are all staying safe during this crazy time. I wanted to share an exciting new addition, a 2MCHZ pocket watch chronograph with the urofa 59 caliber inside. The watch is nearly NOS, with matching certificate to identify the caliber as "26 ЧК"

A rare find indeed, congrats!
Just out of precision, though, the 26 ЧК caliber has no relationship with the Urofa 59; it's a Molnija ЧК-6 (later 3602) with a chronograph module added.

I believe you are referring to the 28 ЧК caliber - which is indeed the modified Molnija. This certificate references 26 ЧК.

For reference here is an example of a 28 ЧК caliber certificate:

Deepest apologies for the misleading comment... I didn't pay enough attention to the Attectat and, most of all, to the aligned subdials...
Would you mind sharing a pic of the opened passport, to read the factory's technical specs? Also, is there a different logo on the movement (compared to 1MChZ-made watches)?
Thanks!
