Soyuz Watches – The Pride Of MoscowPublished: March 1st, 2009
I can’t think of many watches that can trace their history back to a secret armory in the dusty street of 1940s Moscow. In fact – there’s only one watch brand with that distinction: Soyuz watches.
Soviet leader Josef Stalin ordered the production of these watches and presented them to leaders of Soviet society as a measure of appreciation for hard work and integrity. If you weren’t in Stalin’s personal circle, you’d never have a chance to own a Soyuz watch!
But today, that’s changed. Once available only to leaders in Soviet society, Soyuz watches are now available to any watch connoisseur interested in adding a bit of history to their wardrobe.
Check out these top designer watches from Soyuz:
