Petrodvorets

The Petrodvorets Watch Factory is the oldest factory in Russia. Founded by Peter the Great in 1721 as the Peterhof Lapidary Works, to make hardstone carvings.

 

First State Watch Factory

Founded in 1930 under orders from Stalin, the First State Watch Factory was the first Serious Soviet watch and mechanical movement manufacturer.

The Soviet government bought the defunct Ansonia Clock Company of Brooklyn, New York in 1929, and the Dueber-Hampden Watch Company of Canton, Ohio. It moved twenty-eight freight cars full of machinery and parts from the USA to Moscow in order to establish the factory.

Twenty-one former Dueber-Hampden watchmakers, engravers and various other technicians helped to train the Russian workers in the art of watchmaking as part of the Soviet's First Five-Year Plan.

The movements of very-early products were stamped "Dueber-Hampden, Canton, Ohio, USA".

In 1935 the factory was named after the murdered Soviet official Sergei Kirov.

As the Germans closed in on Moscow in 1941, the factory was hurriedly evacuated to Zlatoust.

By 1943 the Germans were in retreat, and the factory moved back to Moscow, adopting the "First Moscow Watch Factory" name.

FLIGHT

 Poljot (Russian: literally meaning "flight"), a brand of watches from Russia produced since 1964 by the First Moscow Watch Factory. It produce many historical watches used in many important space missions

Although the history of Poljot begins in 1930, Poljot actually began in 1927 when the Soviet Department of Labor decided the USSR should have a watch industry to equip the Red Army soldiers.

Yuri Gagarin flew the  first human flight to the outer space, the 21st April 1961 wearing a Ploljot.

The birth of the “Poljot” (Flight) trademark was recorded in 1964 not long after the flight and it has since became well known as the first watch that traveled to the outer space, not only in the USSR, but throughout the world.

In 1965, Alexei Leonov was the first cosmonaut to perform an Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA) was wearing a Poljot Strela ( “Arrow”), a russian chronograph first built in 1959 for the exclusive use of the soviet air force.

SECONDA


Originally a company which marketed Soviet-made times pieces in the West, Soviet-era Sekondas were re-badged Poljot models produced by the First Moscow Watch Factory and the Petrodvorets Watch Factory.

"Sekonda" is the name used on Poljot’s export watches. Sekonda is the best-selling watch brand in the United Kingdom.
