Raketa “Premier” Automatic watch

Designed by the star dancer of the Bolshoi, the Raketa “Premier” Automatic watch celebrates the glory of Russian ballet.

Raketa “Premier” Automatic watch

In Russian, the word “Premier” denotes the star dancer of a ballet, so with this “Premier” watch, the Raketa Watch Factory is paying homage to one of the world’s great ballets – the Russian ballet. For the conception of this watch, the “premier” dancer of the Bolshoi Theatre, Artem Ovtcharenko, was inspired by the elegant design of a Raketa model of the 1960’s.

The mother-of-pearl dial symbolises the splendour of the Russian ballet, the pride of Russian culture. The “heart” of the Premier watch stands out particularly: its automatic movement is entirely made in the Raketa Watch Factory in Saint Petersburg.
