Review: Rekord Standard Automatic
Updated 13 May 2008 by Editor, RussianWatchGuide.com



I don't know a lot about Rekord watches. In fact, I had never even seen one before. That's one reason I purchased this watch. Another reason is the fact that it cost only $38 dollars and I simply can't resist buying a mechanical watch priced so low.

Rekord Standard Rekord makes several types of watches. This watch is part of their "Standard" line. Rekord "Premium" watches, which obviously are higher quality, sell for $300 and up.

Although this watch looks nice and seems to run fine, I'm really not sure of the quality. I'm told it is assembled in a factory in Moscow, though I'm not certain that the internal movement is Russian-made. I suspect it is made in China.

Certainly this watch does not appear to be of the same quality as the Vostok Amphibia I recently purchased for only $11 more. I still can't believe I paid only $49 for that watch.

Nonetheless, I am enjoying having my new Rekord Standard on my wrist. It looks good there. It feels good. It's comfortable and light. I think I'll wear it quite often.

By the way, I purchased the watch on eBay from The Zenitar Store.
