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