THE VERY FIRST 1959 POLJOT ALARM WATCH ROCK RESTORED

Founded in 1930 under orders from Stalin, the First State Watch Factory was the first Serious Soviet watch and mechanical movement manufacturer.Through it's USA-based trading company Amtorg, the Soviet government bought the defunct Ansonia Clock Company of Brooklyn, New York in 1929, and the Dueber-Hampden Watch Company of Canton, Ohio. It moved twenty-eight freight cars full of machinery and parts from the USA to Moscow in order to establish the factory. Twenty-one former Dueber-Hampden watchmakers, engravers and various other technicians helped to train the Russian workers in the art of watchmaking as part of the Soviet's First Five-Year Plan

.In 1935 the factory was named after the murdered Soviet official Sergei Kirov AND produced Soviet watch brands including Poljot. With the Germans closing in on Moscow in 1941, the factory was hurriedly evacuated to Zlatoust . By 1943 the Germans were in retreat, and the factory moved back to Moscow, adopting the "First Moscow Watch Factory" name Watches and movements produced by the factory always met high quality requirements, because in addition to serving for civil needs they were used to equip the soviet army.

In 1959, First Moscow Watch Factory developed the first Soviet Wrist alarm clock "signal" WITH 2612 DOUBLE CROWN DOUBLE MAINS... A COPY OF THE SWISS AS 1475!!!!!!!!!!

On April 12th 1961 Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space and the watch he wore was a Poljot!
Russian president selects the Poljot 3133 watch as a government gift.

In 1965 cosmonaut Alexei Leonov wore a FMWF Strela chronograph during his historic first space walk, thus cementing Poljot's place in space history.

Poljot watches have accompanied various astronauts in space journeys from different nations including Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine. The Poljot watch even has a world record for duration of a space adventure
