Classic AvtomatModel W-20-16-30-0251 By Raketa
A historical design with a Russian-made automatic movement: one of Radeta’s icons.
This watch was originally designed in the 1970s – an elegant mechanical watch that has become a Raketa icon. During an official visit to Italy, journalists asked Mikhaïl Gorbachev what Perestroïka meant for the URSS. Gorbachev replied that Russia has embarked on an entirely new start, and using his hands to emphasise his point, he showed the figure “0” marked in place of “12” on his Raketa watch. From that date, the hour figures on Raketa watches always start with 0 – one of Raketa’s trademarks
The “Raketa - Avtomat” automatic movement is produced entirely in the Raketa Watch Factory in Saint Petersburg.
