New Drop: The Raketa Avant-Garde 0279 Limited Edition

The idea of avant-garde is meant to inspire a new vision of what the future could look like, one that does not conform to what is presently accepted as “normal.” The Raketa Avant-Garde 0279 Limited Edition was inspired by this idea, dedicated to providing watch lovers everywhere the chance to own a one-of-a-kind timepiece that takes inspiration from Russian forefathers of the avant-garde movement. Kandinsky and Malevich both worked to create art that was free and open to interpretation, shaking up what art was present at the time and paving the way for many abstract art movements around the world.,


The Raketa Avant-Garde 0279 Limited Edition takes cues from movement with its three geometric shapes that move above the dial to represent the hands, including a circle for the minute hand, a pointed line for the second and a triangle for the hour. The dial has a strong avant-garde-style design with “Made in Russia” printed in the centre as a nod to the movement’s forefathers.


Securing the Raketa Avant-Garde 0279 Limited Edition to the wrist is a strapping leather band that boasts large circular openings running its length, which shows off the red linen that is conventionally tucked away until the material of the strap. Finally, it has an automatic movement that is decorated using an avant-garde-inspired design on the main bridge and the rotor, something that is rare in watchmaking. The Raketa Avant-Garde watch is available on the Raketa watch website, making it easy for any collector to access.
