About MOLNIJA Pocket Watches

As you stroll down the busy street, a frazzled passerby asks you the time, but you do not pull out your cellular phone, and you do not glance at your wrist. Instead, you pull out a one-of-a-kind Molnija pocket watch, flip open the cover, and proudly announce the time. There is something uniquely impressive about using a pocket watch. They can project a sophisticated appreciation for vintage and classic timepieces, for which Molnija has set the standard. Molnija, which is Russian for "lightning," began producing pocket watches in 1947, boasting that most of their watches are almost completely handmade. While they no longer produce new pocket watches, you can still find a large inventory of Molnija vintage pocket watches on eBay. Peruse the selection to find pieces like the Molnija USSR Soviet pocket watch, featuring an open face and 18 beautiful jewels. You can opt instead for a Russian Soviet Union USSR Molnija pocket watch with a vintage feel and included chain for easy carrying. Choose from engraved pieces that elaborately depict Russian motifs or simpler antique pocket watches that portray less flair.
