About Rodina Watches
Luxury can be confining, but going too casual can leave you feeling less than. With a timepiece like a Rodina watch, you get the perfect balancing point between luxury and leisure. This vintage watch has the minimalist elegance of a mid-century classic. As the first automatic wristwatch of the Soviet Union, a Rodina watch is also a unique piece of history. While there are a good number of designs still available from Rodina, by and large these men's watches adhere to the simple, non-decorative approach to watch design so characteristic of the 1950s and 1960s. The watch size is quite compact compared to contemporary men's watches, measuring in typically at just over 1.5 inches across the case. The watch bands are quality leather while the movement is either 22-jewel or 29-jewel, depending on the model. Collectors can look for complete watches or find vintage watch cases that they can then attach to new bands.
