Russia and its watches and clocks

Johannes Altmeppen

More than 600 well known Russian watchmakers from the tsarist era and more than 20 watch factories from the Soviet era have left a rich legacy. During the second half of the 20th century, Russia produced unique timepieces for scientific and aerospace applications.

Johannes Altmeppen gives an insight into the watchmaking achievements of the Soviet Union and suggests to take a closer look at this chapter of contemporary history.
