Raketa: Brand Information
Updated 26 Sep 2010 by Editor, RussianWatchGuide.com
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.
For more information on Raketa watches, see this interview with Count Jacques von Polier, Raketa's Head of Design and Propaganda.
See this Raketa 24 hour watch review.
Where to Buy
The best place to buy a Raketa watch is from an official, authorized retailer. Raketa is currently in the process of setting up their internet distribution network.

WWW.RAKETA.SU factory make the watches in CHINA and they write on the box MADE IN USSR :))) 100% fake!!!
How old is my Raketa? It was a gift 20 years ago. It's a wind up and the only words on it are "Made in the USSR". There is a # on the back also.
I desire to introduce myself that I am one of the private collectors of wristwatches and timepieces in Sri Lanka; I started this pastime since my School Days 35 years ago, apart from my business as one of the foremost Indenting Agents and Manufactures Representative in Sri Lanka.
A few of the eye-catching timepieces created by your company stunned me interest to know further on the products, furthermore, I fancy to put in to my anthology as well. I am not in favor of sight your timepieces on my computer screen, which I rebuff to do so.
Therefore, I will appreciate if you could mail few of your hard material brochures/catalogues to my collection library to reach below postal address.
I apologies and make my kind appeal to onward this email to the exact department If you assume that I have send to the incorrect section.
I await with keen interest to hear from you at earliest.

Raketa's official facebook page:
Raketa is still in business and about to announce a new series of watches. Don't assume that the "Raketa" watches you see for sale online are real, most of them are fakes. Their new website is www.raketa.su
I ask: but the factory, today, is still active and produces?
Or it's closed and stopped production last time ago?
They are my favorite Russian watches... But be very carefull a lot of fake on internet... If your raketa does not work it is most probably a fake Raketa watch. always check by email with the factory before buying a Raketa on Internet.
I have watch Raketa which works for about 30 years with only one repairing. It is very good watches
Not as good quality as Vostok but I like the way it looks so I wear it a lot.
Have you ever seen a Wood Watch?|
