From a lil unknown Russian brand, but they make amazing watches.


so what is the brand´s name?


This is interesting. 

As far as the watches, they are varied and often cool looking. Beyond that, the website doesn’t always present the specs in detail that I’d consider sufficient at this brand’s reasonably high price point.

As far as the brand, the website makes clear that it celebrates the actual Soviet Union, and isn’t just trying for kitsch or a “Soviet aesthetic.” 

That’s fine, if that’s what they and a sufficient number of consumers want, but its unfortunately not something I (even if I weren’t someone who spoke a little Russian) would be comfortable sporting so boldly on my wrist. And for the record, I wouldn’t wear an American flag watch either. Just not interested in this much wristpolitik.
