This factory tour can be incorporated into almost any tour program that takes you to Peterhof Imperial Residence.

The Petrodvorets Watch Factory «Raketa», Russia’s oldest factory, was founded by Peter the Great in 1721. The Factory is producing watches under the brand “Pobeda” (Victory) since the End of World War II and since 1961 under the brand “Raketa” in honour of Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. The reorganization of the factory started in 2009 with the help of Russian and Swiss engineers. One of them is an ex-Rolex production director. The Petrodvorets Watch Factory is one of the rare watch factories in the world that fully manufactures its own movements from A to Z, including hairspring and escapement. Russian watches “Raketa” are available in the best shops in Russia, such as GUM и TSUM in Moscow or Status and Babochka in Saint-Petersburg and in many other shops.
