A BIT OF HISTORY BEHIND THIS MODEL. Wristwatches, have been manufactured since 1961 by the Petrodvorets Watch Factory in Saint Petersburg. This factory is Russia's oldest factory, founded by Peter the Great in 1721. Raketa watches have been produced for the Red Army, the Soviet Navy, and for North Pole expeditions, as well as for civilian everyday wear. Today, Raketa is one of a handful of global watch brands that produces its own movements from start to finish. The name and model "RAKETA" was firstly introduced as a tribute to Yurii Gagarin's flight in 1961 in outer space on the rocket, Vostok 1. During Soviet times it became one of the most produced watch brands in the world. At the peak of production in the 1970s, the factory produced about five million hand-wound watches per year. With prices similar to Swiss luxury brands, the quality, fit and finish of Raketa timepieces have improved markedly since the 1960s. Since "Raketa" is one of the rare manufacturers capable of fully producing its watches, including movements, hairsprings and escapements in-house.
