Engineered for Russian submariners with metal from the submarine “Leopard”
To produce this 24 hour watch for Russian submariners, Raketa used a metal piece from the Russian submarine “Leopard” (Akula class). The metal was officially given to Raketa by the shipyard that is currently conducting the overhaul and modernisation of the Leopard. This metal comes from an exterior part of the Leopard’s hull.
This exceptional watch was developed with the help of Captain Valery Dyakonov who knows this submarine particularly well: he supervised the pre-launch stages of the Leopard, conducted its sea trials and was its first commander until 1996. He now lives in Saint-Petersburg next to Raketa. When presented with the first sample of this watch, he said: “This is the first time in many years that I have touched my Leopard submarine and I will now keep it with me forever!”
Every watch is delivered with a certificate authenticating the origin of the Leopard metal, with the official insignia of the Leopard submarine, with an additional rubber band and a branded spring bar tool to easily change the straps.
This watch is produced in a limited series of 300 pieces.
