Watches that challenge the conventional clockwise pattern of time-reading!

Are you ready for a new evolution of watches where time moves in harmony with the movement of the planets?

Did you know that the laws of astronomy make the Earth and all the other planets turn in a counterclockwise direction around the Sun? The limited edition of 300 Raketa “Russian Code” watches offers a new evolution of time-reading – where time moves in harmony with the natural counterclockwise movement in our solar system: a special automatic movement makes all the hands move in a reverse direction around the dial! You can also notice the moon, at the tip of the second hand, turning counterclockwise around the Earth exactly like it goes in reality.

Who said that the conventional direction is necessarily the correct one? Are you ready to move on to the new generation of watches that tick to the beat of the Universe? Are you ready to be ahead of your time?

This watch has a special movement entirely produced in the Raketa Watch Factory (in Saint Petersburg) which makes the hands turn counterclockwise (movement No. 2615R). If you wind-up the movement manually, it is necessary to turn the crown towards you (i.e. contrary to the usual direction). When you set the time, it is necessary to turn the hands counterclockwise.

Movement: Russian Made In-House Automatic Avtomat movement
Case: 316L Stainless Steel, Ø 40,50 mm

Raketa Russian Watch manufacture banner

The Raketa Watch Factory, Russia’s oldest factory, was founded by Peter the Great in 1721. The factory is producing watches under the brand “Pobeda” since the end of World War II. In 1961, the brand “Raketa” was launched in honor of Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.



The Raketa watch factory

Raketa watches watchmaking
Following a difficult period after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Factory launched a modernization program in 2011. It is now one of the very few watch factories in the world to produce every part of its own mechanical movement, including the most complex items such as the hairspring and the escapement.


103 specialists

This is the exact number of specialists that are needed to produce and assemble every single “Raketa” watch. This skilled team is like a well-oiled mechanism. It includes watchmakers who inherited their skills from their father and new recruits who selected this career by themselves.

The watchmaking school

Raketa watches watchmaking school meeting
The Factory opened its own in-house watchmaking school to instruct the science of watchmaking to all the new generations: whatever his specialty within the Factory, it is indeed crucial that every specialist understands how the quality of his work directly impacts on the precision of the watch once it is assembled.

Reliable machinery

Reliable and well-maintained machines ensure a high level of quality of the manufacturing process. The Raketa watch factory continues to use traditional production machines operated by men and women (as opposed to computer software) who therefore transmit a little of their passion into each part they produce.

The heart of the watch

Raketa watches hairspringThe heart of a watch is its little spring manufactured in a special Russian alloy to a precision of 0.5 microns (0.0005 mm). The transparent case back of “Raketa” watches allows you to observe its oscillation, i.e. the “heart beating” of the watch! Only a very few other factories in the world know how to produce this critical part.

8201 operations

Raketa watches movement assembling
This is the exact number of operations required to manufacture and assemble all the parts of a Raketa watch “Classic Avtomat”. Using traditional production and assembly methods, each of these operations is done by hand by men and women who therefore transmit a little of their soul into each part.

242 parts

This is the exact number of parts that you wear on your wrist when you own a Raketa watch “Classic Avtomat”. Once assembled by hand by the watchmakers, all these parts – some scarcely visible to the naked eye – come to life and start moving.

A unique mechanism

Raketa watches movement
“Raketa” is one of the very few watch brands in the world to have its own movement. The Factory’s designers and engineers have combined the tried methods of the Soviet era with more modern technology to produce a movement that is not simply robust and reliable, but also with Russian style decorations.
