A Glimpse At The World of Russian Watches

Poljot, Volmax, Sturmanskie, & Vostok-Europe - A Glimpse At The World of Russian Watches
As you know by now, it is our goal to educate the masses on EVERYTHING related to watches. The thing is, most of the watches we tend to talk about are Swiss (with the necessary US and Chinese-based pieces thrown in for good measure). Sure we have mentioned a few German watches too, but the world is a big place, and there must be some other mechanical watches out there worth while, right? Right.

Enter the Russians. The Russian watch movement is nothing new, in fact it holds an important and interesting place in grand scheme of things. Many of us associate the word and brand "Poljot" with Russian watches, and that makes sense. After all, Poljot (which means "flight") was the dominant producer of Russian watches for about 30 years.
