The 1st MWF (First Moscow Watch Factory ) was founded 01.10.1930. It was the first watch factory of the young Soviet Socialists republic. To start the production, four types of watches were chosen: a man's pocket watch with 15 jewels for the enterprises of the Narkomat (Ministry) of Means of Communications, a man's wristwatch with 7 jewels for the Red Army; a man's pocket watch with 7 jewels and a ladies' wristwatch with 15 jewels to sell in a market.
