"Raketa 24 Hours KSF" Watch Description 

We present to you something special – our mechanical wristwatch "Raketa KSF – Red Banner Northern Fleet, DPLK – Division of Anti-Submarine Ships"! This watch is a true relic, dating back to 1990's, and has been wonderfully preserved to this day.

And what makes these watches so unique? It's equipped with the caliber 2609NA, a movement with a shock-resistant balance that is incredibly reliable and accurate. The production was entrusted to the Petrodvorets Watch Factory in the USSR, where the watch was crafted with skill and love.

With its distinctive 24-hour dial, this watch not only tells the time but also adds a unique touch to your style.

Whether you're a collector or a fashion enthusiast, the Vintage Raketa 24-Hour Watch is a captivating accessory that transcends time, making a statement wherever you go.

The 24-hour dial on Raketa vintage watches was originally designed to cater to specific needs, particularly for professions or activities that require tracking time in a 24-hour format rather than the conventional 12-hour format. Pilots, military personnel, and individuals working in certain scientific or industrial fields often find a 24-hour dial more practical.

A 24-hour dial allows for easier differentiation between day and night without relying on an AM/PM indicator. This feature is particularly useful in situations where clarity in timekeeping is crucial, and it eliminates any potential confusion that might arise with a 12-hour dial.

Raketa is a famous brand of watches. The factory has worked since 1962 in the Soviet Union. Raketa watches were produced for the Red Army, the Soviet Navy, for North Pole expeditions, as well as for civilians.
