Raketa “Amphibia” 0257Reference: W-85-16-10-0257
This automatic watch for divers is inspired by a Raketa diver watch design from the 1970s.
Located beside the naval bases of Saint Petersburg, the Raketa Watch Factory has been making watches for the Russian navy and Russian divers for a long time. The Raketa “Amphibia” watch was conceived on the basis of mythical soviet Raketa diver model from the 1970s. The watchmakers of the Raketa Watch Factory have now perfected this diver’s watch. The case is in stainless steel; the hands and the figures on the dial have luminous paint, and are protected by a sapphire glass. The maximum permissible depth is 400 metres (40 ATM). A scale on the rotating ceramic bezel marked in 15 minutes intervals enables the diver to control the level of oxygen in his bottle. The special screw-in crown prevents the diver from accidentally opening it underwater.
The engine of the Raketa “Amphibia” watch is a Russian automatic movement made in-house by the Raketa Watch Factory in Saint Petersburg.
