Molniya watches can become history soon
Sad news came from Chelyabinsk. The famous Watch Factory ‘Molniya’ has stopped production. The factory with deep roots is not producing the world-famous clockwork series 3603, 3602 and 3600 any longer. These clockworks were widely used by many other Russian watchmakers. The Watch Factory ‘Molniya’ was founded in Chelyabinsk in October of 1947 and was about to celebrate its 60th anniversary this year. Thereby, the big collection of “Volmax” watches, which were based on the 3603 clockwork, is ceasing to exist. Yesterday we sold the last item of this watch. The future of “Molniya” is a big question, but no one in Russia produces the same mechanical pocket watches any more
Is er iemand die dit kan bevestigen?
