The Petrodvorets Watch Factory launched new collection under its historical brand «Pobeda» in honor of the 70th anniversary of Victory (in russian: “Pobeda”) in World War II.
“Pobeda” watches have been produced since 1945. The brand was launched in April 1945 by order of the Kremlin. The Soviet watchmakers had to create watches symbolising the heroism of Russian soldiers who fought Nazi Germany.
The first “Pobeda” wristwatches were extremely popular and successful. Until the 60-s, “Pobeda” was the most produced watch model in the world. Politicians, military figures, artists wore “Pobeda” watches.
The brand “Pobeda” is of a great importance for Petrodvorets Watch Factory and its employees. During the time of the Second World war, the factory was in the center of the major historical events. In spite of blockade the factory employees never stopped producing instruments for planes and military equipment. The factory lost the majority of its employees on the front line and inside Leningrad blockade territory.
New “Pobeda” is based on its historical design from 1945.
Petrodvorets Watch Factory is an official owner of brand “Pobeda”.
All models have their unic design, but based on the original models.
Designers worked on a new “Pobeda” collection really hard to make it fresh and bright.
The Petrodvorets Watch Factory was founded by Peter the Great in 1721, It is producing watches under the brand «Pobeda» (Victory) since 1945, and «Raketa» since 1961 in honor of Yuri Gagarin.
«Raketa» is one of the rare watch factories in the World producing its own watch movements from A to Z, including hair-spring and escapement.
