If you’re into watches, one way to upgrade your collection is by looking at vintage and vintage-inspired Soviet timepieces. You’ll find a lot of cool designs out there, with interesting texts and numerals paired with a wide array of colors.
The tech is another high point of Soviet watches. They’re crafted quite well—durable and able to hold up over time.
This vintage Soviet Pobeda watch is from the 1980s and comes with a mechanical movement (case size is 34mm). The case and dial have been updated, and the watch comes with a brown leather band.
What’s unique is the history of the Pobeda. They were one of the timepieces produced at the first official watch factory in Moscow post-WWII (1946).
According to the independent store owner, SovietWatchStore, the watches were “always in great demand, but few could afford them.” They’ve been a staple in classic sustained style and are continue to be worn today, often being passed down generations.
You can snag a few of these Soviet watches, and many more other styles, over on SovietWatchStore’s Etsy storefront.
It’s hard to come by hidden gems like these for such a good price. Buy a vintage Pobeda from a store you can trust.
