Raketa's "Russian Code" watch

Post by bbattle » June 25th 2021, 11:35am

Despite the constant cascade of new watch releases that seem to crop up on the daily, it is a rarity to come across anything that challenges convention as boldly as the innovative Raketa “Russian Code.” In fact, it opposes the conventionality of “clockwise rotation” itself. There is a reason that the word “clockwise” has become commonplace. It is a precedent that is supported from early time-telling training in elementary school, through the acquisition of a first wristwatch, and in viewing virtually every clock that comes into view. Raketa’s newest model, the “Russian Code,” is going to be an acquired taste, as it bucks the notion that there is only one “correct” direction in which the wheel of time turns. In fact, this piece stands proudly in defiance of the widely accepted norm by featuring dial numbering and hands that move in reverse.

It uses Raketa's in-house movement, the 2615R. You have to set the hands in a counter-clockwise direction. Raketa feels this watch is perfect for the well-heeled tatto artist:

I think the white one looks better but I could do without the PVD rose gold on the case.

Almost 1400 euro for a goddamn commie Russian wartche? Fuck that shit.
You've got a point John, but it is perfect for the well-heeled tattoo artist. Or maybe just some goateed douchebag, hard to differentiate between the two.
See you're WRONG I don't work at all, I'm a Democrat. The immortal Horse Feathers as spoken to Chucky Ninetoes.
