    Any Chernobyl themed/commemorative watches?

    As topic says... Do there exist any Chernobyl NPP russian watches? Either promotional or commemorative.

    I'm just curious, might be a long shot as I suspect the disaster/"incident" was covered up for a long time, but then again there seems to exist promotional watches for everything else...

    As far as I know… No.


    From what I know, the only watch that clearly shows a nuclear theme is this one (from Ill-Phill's collection ©) :

    Few ultra-rare watches were also made to commemorate polar expeditions, with nuclear icebreaker on the dial.
    And of course, there's the famous Raketa Atom, but it's only a name..

    Yes they did release a series of commemorative Chernobyl watches but they had to be pulled from sale due to dangerously high levels of radioactivity in the lume...

    The antiradition one is one of the most difficult to get, a real grial, but by the way, has any real antiradiation protecion? May be a lead case back?

    I have seen this watch listed sometimes. Don't know if it is some kind of franken/fantasy watch though.

    Interesting wristwatch ZIM. To the Heroes liquidators. The Chernobyl nuclear. | eBay

    There is a Molnija pocket watch in a wood case as gift for the Chernobyl Veterans.

    I saw one for sell on ebay few year again.

    I did not buy because I think this is disgusting to buy this kind of things (like WWII medals). People who owned it deserved it. And if it is on sale, that means these people died or it was stolen .... but this is an other topic!

    This watch is a joke,. There is no special modification to protect the movement, or a person wearing the watch from radiation.,Usual Poljot 3133 with inscriptions appealing to the tourists

    Chernobyl veterans are called "liquidators" there was a government issued state medal and special commemorative pins. They also have an association and it was quite a powerful lobbying structure in all three countries Russia, Ukraine and Bielorussia. They may have custom made memorabilia.
