A historical design with a Russian-made automatic decorated movement: one of Raketa’s icons!

This watch was originally designed in the 1970s – an elegant mechanical watch that has become a Raketa icon. During an official visit to Italy, journalists asked Mikhaïl Gorbachev what Perestroïka meant for the URSS. Gorbachev replied that Russia has embarked on an entirely new start, and using his hands to emphasise his point, he showed the figure “0” marked in place of “12” on his Raketa watch.  From that date, the hour figures on Raketa watches start with 0 – one of Raketa’s trademarks.

Now revived, the Raketa “Classic” attracts particular attention by its refined elegance:  the figures and hands on the dial are gold plated; the case has a transparent back which enables one to admire its automatic movement – entirely made and decorated by the watchmakers of the Raketa Watch Factory in Saint Petersburg.

The Raketa Watch Factory is one of the rare factories in the world to produce all the components of its mechanical movement in-house, including the most complicated parts such as the hairspring and the balance wheel.
