FS: Rare STRELA 3133 manual chronograph L.E. 198 of 500 circa 20

Hi, due large collection reduction for sale an almost rare STRELA 3133, chronograph manual movement.
This chronograph is the modern version of Poljot/Strela 3017 of 1970 era. Resembling the older SEKONDA STRELA, aka “Soviet Speedmaster” (I have on sale one of that, black version: )
Manual, chronograph function Caliber 3133 (supposed derivated by Valjoux 7734) 23 jewels with continuous seconds, 30 minute counter and date. It is the famous caliber of many chronographs of Soviet (and later Russian) production. Date it is not quickset, as correct for 3133 caliber, switching perfectly reaching midnight. Keeps good time and more than 36 hours of power reserve, although I don't know anything about service history.
It appears a Limited Edition of 500 samples, this is #198.

The case is stainless steel, without bumps, dings, shows light signs of age and use (see pictures). Diameter is 40 mm.
Back cover is stainless steel and mineral glass to appreciate the beauty of caliber.
On the edge of back cover is written, in Latin and Cyrillic: “ALL STAINLESS STEEL – WATER RESISTANT 3 ATM - 198/500”. On the mineral glass is stamped CTREЛA (STRELA).
Dial is original, wonderful, with telemeter, tachymeter, writing in Cyrillic STRELA, 23 JEWELS KL 1, MChZ KIROVA and MADE IN RUSSIA, without any sign, any faded, any humidity trace. At
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. Chrono starts, stops and resets as should.

For this very rare STRELA 3 133 I ask 390€ (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.
