The limited edition (300 pieces) Raketa “Russian Code” watch offers a new evolution of time-reading – where time moves in harmony with the natural counterclockwise movement in our solar system: a special automatic movement makes all the hands move in a reverse direction around the dial.
You can also notice the moon, at the tip of the second hand, turning counterclockwise around the Earth exactly like it goes in reality.
This watch has a special movement entirely produced in the Raketa Watch Factory (in Saint Petersburg) which makes the hands turn counterclockwise (movement No. 2615R). If you wind-up the movement manually, it is necessary to turn the crown towards you (i.e. contrary to the usual direction). When you set the time, it is necessary to turn the hands counterclockwise.
