Slava: Brand Information
Updated 12 May 2009 by Editor, RussianWatchGuide.com


slava Slava is a long-time manufacturer of inexpensive watches for the civilian Russian market. Slava watches tend to be conservative, traditional and austere in style.

According to one industry insider, "Slava movement and case production at the Second Moscow Watch Factory was closed 4 to 5 years ago. However, they still make watches using imported cases and original Slava movements from old factory’s stock. They use Chinese movements as well. The current operation is located one kilometer from Red Square."

Most current models retail for under $70.

One unusual watch in the Slava collection is the Special Force Alpha military watch, which uses a Japanese quartz Miyota movement, and retails for over $600. The same watch appears in the Right Move catalog.

Where to Buy

Many models of Slava watches are available on eBay. However, some of these watches, often marked "CJIABA" and sold from Hong Kong, are Chinese-made and do not originate from the Slava factory in Moscow.

One good eBay store for Russian Slava watches is Zenitar. Some models are also available at Smirs.
