    It looks like it's modernized since I was walking on that floor. Hopefully they continue to develop their movements and watches.

    They use Ronda 763 for their Raketa quartz, can't imagine they wouldn't just use that one as well for Pobeda.

    I might have to hit Meranom.com or Raketa! Or possibly Luch!

    Considering they are attempting to have a global audience you'd think Raketa would offer English and French subtitles.

    Thanks for sharing, I especially enjoyed the Vostok tour. I'm not an expert but to me, a lot of the equipment looked like it could have dated from the late Soviet era.
    After watching the video, I am even more astounded at how affordable Vostok watches are. So much of the work is done by hand.

    Oh make no mistake, a TON of it was when I was there and from what I understand it largely still is

    Since we're on the subject of factories, what other factories are still around?

    Russian women workers sure have nice fingernail jobs.

    I saw this comment today on Meranom (poorly Google translated). So according to Dmitry all of the standard Amphibias (apart from the 960 case) and Komandirskie are still fully made in house. Not very surprising but good to know that they've retained the capability of making these and haven't started outsourcing everything to China.

    I'm glad to see cottage industry is alive and well in Russia!
