    That is excellent question. I do not believe that Raketa will miss that opportunity.

Most of us who are on this forum buy at least a few watches a month. At least. Some buy daily and it is the ability to buy so many various watches that attracts people to Russian watches (among other reasons). How many of us can scale down to a watch or two a year? Again, I am not saying New Raketas will not be bought by collectors. They will be. I am also sure if for whatever reason a million Raketas will be in demand the factory will not be able to meet this demand. So the watches priced probably right: cheeper and they will be sold too quickly (at a lesser profit) and the factory will not be able to make many more to benefit from the mass sales. More expensive: will be undersold. These are just my speculations on why it is priced at this level. I am sure smart people thought about it a lot.

    Also, meant to ask David why he is not active on other very popular Russian watch forum? Why just here? Or maybe I missed you there....
    I'm planning to start being active on other forums. Actually, I would be grateful if you could give me your recommendation as to the Russian watch forums on which I should be present in your opinion, taking into consideration that we don't have the resources to be on all forums (we're still a very small brand and I'm the only English speaking person at Raketa). Thanks. D.

    Thanks for you wishes! We're really trying hard. We're actually working on the next movement complication: No. 26693.

    On Monday, I'll post a photo of an old Raketa watch with this movement (I can't find one right now). We found the technical drawings of this complication last year in the Factory's archives, have produced 20 samples and are currently testing them (the 20 watch samples with this movement are worn by watchmakers of the Factory).

    I know (or I think to know) that Raketa never made any chronographs, but I ask myself if Raketa ever thought about making chronographs during soviet time. Is there any studies on this subject into your archives ?
    To the best of my knowledge, Raketa never tried to develop a chronograph. From what I was told, Soviet Watch Factories could not really independently decide to develop a new movement. They could only do that with the prior authorisation of their superior authorities (i.e. some Ministry in Moscow). They were instructed to produce and export as many watches as possible to Western countries because the Soviet Union always needed more foreign currency. This was their main priority. Developing a chronograph would simply distract them from this important goal. The Poljot Factory in Moscow, which developed its chronograph, seemed to be more privileged because it had closer ties to the Kremlin.
