Founded in 1721 by a decree of the Emperor Peter the Great,
the Petrodvorets Watch Factory has always been linked to the
great names and great achievements of Russian history.
For example, the “Raketa” brand name was created in 1961
in honour of the first cosmonaut in the world Yuri Gagarin.
With its moving parts all produced in the Factory, and with a design
marked by the DNA of three centuries of Russian history.
