    There's a new Raketa Yalta on sale now for a pretty surprising price. Shipping is obviously inflated, but all told, the watch is still about 60% less than the same watch available on Raketa's website:

    From official site: "Yalta watch is inspired by a 1960s vintage model. This timepiece is ideally suited for relaxed conversation with friends about world reorganization and meeting with president in the Kremlin." I really don't like the Crimean trolling by a Russian company. Really, really don't like it.

    Oh WOW I did not even notice that. "Relaxed conversation about world reorganization" -- are they serious? Could they be any more blatant?

    Ugh.

    I generally don't understand what Raketa is trying to do as a house. They were taken over by French (?) management, if I'm not mistaken, about 7-10 years ago. With the idea of going upscale. I wanted to help and support them if needed, wrote a letter volunteering translation skills for their then-unreadable English webpage, got a response that it's all great, and nothing further. No problem. But now I see $500+ starting prices on mechanical pieces and some really bizarre Pobeda quartz... Not sure at all where they are going with it or what their focus is nowadays.

    And still you can get some refund after receiving the item, since it's not chronograph :^).

    Well, this is only matter of political perception. In "contrare" I can remind Yugoslavia, for example.

    Looks like great deal, but I personally don't like gold/gold plated watches. Even my wedding ring is white gold.
