Oversize watch "Slava" Tank Art Deco from 1980's

Dispatches from Poland

The Slava Tank watch stands as a remarkable testament to the innovative design and craftsmanship of the 1980s. Upon its debut, it immediately captured the attention and admiration of watch enthusiasts, not just for its timekeeping precision but also for its distinctive case shape – a feature that gave it its nickname.
Its structure, a harmonious blend of straight lines and curved edges, mirrors the robust yet elegant silhouette of a tank, thus earning its namesake. However, its unique appearance, reminiscent of the vintage refrigerators from the 1960s, affectionately earned it another moniker among collectors: the “Slava Fridge.”

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Slava is powered by the manual winding movement Cal.2628. This movement is celebrated for its reliability and includes a double vertical calendar, a testament to the watch's engineering excellence that has stood the test of time. Such a mechanism underlines the Slava Tank's reputation as not just a keeper of time, but as a reliable companion through the decades.

Investing in vintage watches like the Slava Tank is more than a financial decision; it's an investment in history and artistry. Watches from bygone eras not only tend to appreciate in value but also offer a unique charm and story, making them a thoughtful gift idea for any occasion.

The Slava Tank does not discriminate in its display of elegance; it graces any wrist it adorns, making a statement that transcends the confines of time. It is more than just a watch; it's a piece of history, a work of art that enhances any watch collection, promising to bring its distinct character and timeless charm to the forefront.
