The model “Samara” is a beautiful watch from the 60s, which is newly produced. The design originates from the 60s, yet it has been slightly reworked. The hour markers get a thinner and more elegant shape and fit perfectly visually to the narrow shape of the hands. Numbers were chosen to represent the minute scale. These were placed on the outer edge of the dial. The curvature of the dial on the outer edge remains, as in the original models of the 60s, and successfully continues this tradition. The color of the dials was also adapted to the 60s. A delicate champagne and emerald green hue play the main role, as these colors were very popular at the time. The plain hands of the green version are designed in white; the champagne version gets blued hands. Due to these contrasts, they support the easy readability of the time.
The roots of the watch brand “Poljot-International” date back to the 1930s, when the “First State Watch Factory” was founded in Moscow. In 1961, after the flight of the first citizen of the earth, Yuri Gagarin, into space, the watches produced by the factory were given the designation “Poljot” (the flight).
All watches of the brand “Poljot-International” are manufactured in Germany today. Nevertheless, the charm and delicacy in the design, the skilful hands of the master watchmakers, the warmth of the Russian soul and, of course, the love for Russia can be seen and felt.
