The Raketa “Sukhoi” is an automatic pilot’s watch with a date function, developed in collaboration with the Sukhoi design bureau.
The leading Russian aircraft company “Sukhoi” turned to the Raketa Watch Factory watchmakers to design a watch for the pilots of the Russian Su-25 jet fighter. The result of this collaboration was the Raketa “Sukhoi” watch which can resist the extreme forces experienced in flight aboard the legendary Su-25.
The watchmakers positioned the date on the dial in a very ingenious manner: the window indicating the date is located inside the famous 0 – the distinctive mark of Raketa watches.
The stainless steel case of the watch has a rotating bezel, and a scratch-resistant sapphire glass.
The “Raketa – Avtomat” automatic movement, one of the most reliable in the world, is produced entirely in the Raketa Watch Factory in Saint Petersburg.
