A few weeks back, Blake Rong, one of our contributors, swung by our office to record an episode of The worn&wound Podcast. In it, we spent a good bit of time discussing Russian—and specifically Soviet-era–watches. In Blake’s words, “Russian watches have been the most reliable things I’ve ever owned.” That reliability doesn’t come as too much of a surprise. Soviet-era watches were built to be utilitarian machines. Most featured simple or rather straightforward designs. Those that took liberties with embellishments were often produced to commemorate some occasion.
