Petrodvorets Watch Factory “Raketa” continues the tradition of collaborations with the leading Russian aviation enterprises. “Sukhoi”, “Tupolev” supported the oldest manufacture in the country. Today Russian pilots wear Raketa “Tu-160” and “Sukhoi”. In 2018 Petrodvorets Watch Factory and “Ilyushin” produced a model based on the “Pobeda” watches: “Ilyushin” for Victory. Collaboration with the aviation industry is an important direction for Petrodvorets Watch Factory. The history of collaboration goes back to the most difficult periods of the Great Patriotic War. At that time the factory employees in spite of blockade never stopped producing instruments for planes and military equipment. After the war the factory has continued to carry out special orders for aviation industry. In 1961 Petrodvorets Watch Factory named its watches “Raketa” in honor of of the legendary flight of Yuri Gagarin. Not only the history and unique “know-how” relates “Raketa” and Russian aviation industry, but also the opportunity to position itself as the native Russian brand. Petrodvorets Watch Factory is one of the rare watch factories in the world that fully manufactures its own movements from A to Z, including hairspring and escapement. These watch models are available in the official “Raketa” shops in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ekaterinburg and online.
