The trading house ‘Poljot’ or Polet is a well-known watch company in Russia that combines excellent product quality as well as design and Russian traditions of watchmaking. The watch brand ‘Poljot’ is famous since the mid of ХХ century. It was one of the best choices in the Soviet times. These watches were given to the best workers and winners of the socialist competitions. War veterans received them in memory of the Victory Day. Even when going abroad, people took them as gifts.
An important period in the history of this magnificent Russian brand was the fact that Yuri Gagarin took the ‘Shturmanskie’ watch when flying into space for the first time. The watch stood the zero-gravity test and returned to the earth without damages together with Gagarin. You can find both quartz and mechanical ‘Poljot’ watches, which are relatively inexpensive and make a part of USSR history.
The history of the trading house ‘Poljot’ began on 2nd February, 2002, when there was collapse of the domestic watch industry. The employees of the First Moscow Watch Factory tried to avoid the full breakdown of the watch production and took the only right decision to create their own watch company. Since 2006, the brand has got a new life. The factory produces modern models keeping up the watchmaking traditions.
People, who spent many years in watchmaking industry, started to recover its former strength bit by bit: they rented the production area at the factory, bought the remainder of movements and parts, re-started the production of mechanical watches for men under the brand ‘Poljot’.
The use of traditional European materials for watches, as well as time-tested movements ‘Poljot’, ‘Ronda’, ‘ETA’ (Switzerland), ‘Seiko’, ‘Miyota’ – that is the secret of success of ‘Poljot’ company. It should be noted that all watches pass through the triple control, as even a slight deviation from the high standards of quality is absolutely unacceptable. The ‘Poljot’ company guarantees high quality and great lifetime of their products.
The watches of the trading house ‘Poljot’ combine the latest trends as well as timeless classics of watchmaking and high quality of the products.
The trading house ‘Poljot’/ Polet is a member of the National Association of Watchmakers. The main goal of Russian manufacturers is to develop watch industry on the territory of the Russian Federation. The National Association of Watchmakers is aimed to revive the traditions of Russian watchmaking .
