Best Place to Buy a Raketa Watch

I'm often asked where is the best place to buy a Raketa watch. Many times a Raketa watch, in particular the 24 hour model, is a person's first Russian watch purchase. The reasons why are clear: the style and function are unique, the 24 hour face looks great in photos, and the watch is inexpensive.

For the past few years most people have been buying Raketa watches on eBay.

However, this year the Raketa company has started the process of establishing a distribution network of authorized sellers. At the time of this writing, the network is not yet established.

You can learn more about the status of Raketa watch production and distribution in this Raketa interview.

Get the Best Price on Your New Watch

Part of the appeal of Russian watches is that they are great value. And nobody wants to overpay for a watch, right?

To help you locate the best prices -- and alert you to deals, sales, clearances and specials offers -- I've set up a page on the Russian Watch Guide website that lists the sellers that offer the best prices. On that page I will also be posting any deals or sales I come across. Readers and sellers are welcome to post too.

Here's the link to the page where you can find the best price on Vostok, Raketa, Aviator and other Russian watches.
