    Raketa “Polar” 0270

    Very interesting news from Raketa factory: see https://raketa.com/w/en/product/raketa-poljarnye-0270/

    One of the most iconic Soviet watches, the famous Raketa Poljarnye from 1969, will be reissued as a limited edition (200 pcs) watch! In exactly the same exterior according to archive drawings.

    The pre-ordering is open.

    I would like to add, that the minimal collector's price for the old original Polyarnye watch in Russia can be about 100000 rubles = 1400 EUR.
    To be more precise, 100000 rub is a normal price for a similar blue Antarktida 24h watch. These Antarktida watches are easy to find. To find a Polyarnye in a good condition be prepared to wait for years ...

    This 1400 EUR is exactly the price of the new Polar 270 watch.

    PS. In general, the rubel is rising and the average price level in Russia is rising too. Russia is not a cheap watch market anymore. Average NOS 24h Raketa with papers is in Russia's internal market 10000 rubel, 140 EUR.

    I love the lugs but how disappointing that it only comes with a gold finish.

    Today I got 280 EUR repayment from Raketa - they decided to discount the preorder price to 1120 EUR.

    Raketa also emailed me, that the production is planned for February 2020.

    The original was gold plated. They decided to keep it as close as possible to the original.
