Raketa: Brand Information
Updated 26 Sep 2014 by Editor, RussianWatchGuide.com



raketa watch Raketa, which means "rocket" in Russian, is perhaps best known for its 24 hour watches.

Raketa went through major restructuring in 2010. The company bought new equipment, adapted its production to modern quality standards and is working on a new collection that includes a modern redesign of the Polar expedition 24 hours watch from 1969.

Raketa watches are manufactured at the Petrodvoretz (Peter Palace) Watch Factory in Saint Peterburg, which was founded by Peter the Great in 1721. The Petrodvorets Watch Factory has been producing watches under the Raketa brand since 1962.

Raketa is one of the last surviving Soviet Watch Factories that produces its movements from A to Z.

Raketa has told Russian Watch Guide that they welcome visits to their factory in Saint Petersbourg and their design studio in Moscow.

The price for new Raketa watches from factory-authorized sellers ranges from USD$150 to USD$650.
