    Elektronikas still made in 2017?

    Tonight browsing on the various websites in Russian language in order to make some sense of the different types of Elektronikas (52, 53,54,55, 65,77, 79...) I stopped on this one:

    ????????.??/???????

    It appears it's the website of a company I never heard about (Technochas) that claims to make digital watches in Belarus in 2016 and 2016...this is intriguing as I thought the last two plants that made Elektronikas (Kamerton and Integral) supposedly stopped production in 2009.

    These watches seems to be rebranded Integrals and Kamerton, the website appears to have a lot of stock parts from Soviets times too, so I thought to share the "discovery". Has anybody heard from them?

    I also mailed them, pretty curious to see if they can answer and what they will say.

    Due to the recent resurgence of popularity among teenagers of vintage Casios (F91, A68, calculators...) I think Elektronikas could be marketed as an alternative, as at the moment it's either Casio or nothing.

    The message has received an answer...and it's an interesting answer:

    You are mostly right about watches history. Digital watches with LCD were produced by 2 factories in USSR (both are in Belarus), "Electronika" in Minsk and "Kamerton" in Pinsk. They are state-owned factories in "integral" concern. Due to some reasons, they have stopped production some (7-10) years ago. We have bought some storage remains of watches and parts from this factories, tested them and put to our internet-shop. After it we've seen that people still have interest for this theme, and we've purchased some specialized equipment from old factories for restart of production. And in May 2017 we've restarted production of watches. First model from new issue (100% new production, without old parts) was "Техночас ЧН-01" (example is by your link). Watches are same as old "Integral ChN-01", but with another design of dial.

    So today we've some NOS watches from "old" factories and watches from our own manufacture (located in Minsk). New watches are made with cooperation with Minsk Watch Plant "Luch" (pressing and galvanic works for watch cases) and "Integral" concern (parts for electronic modules). We also planing to relaunch production of "classic" soviet models Electronika-52,53,54,55 in few month with retro-design from 1980s. By the way, our own production allows us to make any dial design from 100pcs batch with same price, so if you have any ideas about design or want to make any limited edition digital watches, write me.


    I hope I've answered your questions. If you've any more questions, please write them.

    Best regards, Nikolay Roslov
    I plan to get one...

    Obviously, this is owner of russian online-shop. Due to russian laws, it's difficult to sell watches to russian customers directly from Belarus, so "Technochas" company have a dealer in Russia -- IP Roslov Nikolay, who lives in Moscow. By the way, it's me

    But from other countries you can buy watches directly from belorussian company with postal shipping.
