    Agree. A real range of casual and dress watches of reasonable size would be great.

    To add to the requests, a black PVD bracelet to go with the black cased Copernicus/Russian Code/Avant-Garde models.

    IMHO, most of the watches (from many brands) are actually very thick and I donít think itís enough elegant to fit dress watches.
    It would be a very nice surprise for me to see a rebirth of ultra slim mechanical dress watches as 2209 Raketa and Poljot were.

    Yes, I was surprised it wasn't an option.

    You've got both Rolex and Grand Seiko selling watches at between 10-13mm on even the dressy pieces. I don't think it's all that big of a deal.

    Well... I don’t want to be rude but I think I really don’t care about what Grand Seiko and mostly Rolex are selling as dress watches : I feel free to think this is not elegant and if I sometimes like their dials, I don’t like their thick cases and massive look.

    What happened to the section on your website that had the old Raketa catalogues? Bring it back! Add more to it!

    Anyway, here's a couple of mine, old and new:





    And here's a Skip Barber racing car that I skinned and drove in iRacing:

    Is it possible to buy a spare case of the new edition of the Raketa Polar? I'm dreaming of putting the Rossiya movement in that case.
    Further to your message, I've spoken to our Production director and to Ludmilla Y. She agreed to hand-engrave a "personal sign" on the movement or on the caseback of your Polar watch (should you decide to get one, of course). Just tell me if you do so that I can organise this. D.
