New look of Raketa “Copernicus”

часы Коперник Ракета

The watch factory “Raketa”, in cooperation with the cosmonaut, twice hero of the Soviet Union, Alexander Ivanchenkov, have launched a renewed model of the watch Raketa “Copernicus”. “Copernicus” is an iconic model, its design goes beyond the bounds of a of classical watch design and aspires into space. The first model of “Copernicus” was released in the early 80’s, at that times the artists were inspired by the cosmic themes. This legendary watch has become a real gem for most of the watch collectors and today it has obtained a new look. It features a dark blue watch dial resembling the night skies and hands in the shape of planets. Design of the dial displays the phenomena of the total solar eclipse. Only the true cosmonaut could describe the atmosphere of space. Alexander Ivanchenko was in space twice as an engineer of the space station “Soyuz” and travelled in the open space two times. The cosmonaut shared his experience with Raketa designers, so as the result new generation of Raketa “Copernicus” was launched. New “Copernicus” is already available at the best watch shops in Russia and soon will be presented at the watch boutique in Paris, at Place Vendome. The Petrodvorets Watch Factory «Raketa», Russia’s oldest factory, was founded by Peter the Great in 1721. The Factory is producing watches under the brand «Pobeda» (Victory) since the End of World War II. In 1961 the brand «Raketa» was launched in honor of Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. The 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.
