Time seems to stand still at the Zlatoust watch factory. Being there is like being in a time-warp. Similar factories, perhaps, can only be seen now in old Soviet documentaries from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Amazingly, despite the old machinery, workers at the watch factory manage to produce some timeless pieces.
Russian divers’ watches have been hogged by collectors worldwide for several decades now, but most can only get their hands on costly replicas which have nothing to do with the originals. The real deal is being made in the city of Zlatoust.
