Hey, everyone – Kaz here. This week I’m flying solo! My better half in Broke Watch Snobbery was unable to record last minute… and you know what that means? We’re talking about Soviet Union Watches! As many of you know, Soviet Union Horology is a huge part of my particular passion niche within horology. That’s why this week I wanted to talk about the 5 Vintage Soviet Union Watches That You Need To Know About.

These represent 5 watches tied to 5 different historical milestones within Soviet Union horology that I feel everyone needs to be aware of. There’s a lot of history and info in this one. Hope everyone enjoys.

Kaz has been collecting watches since 2015, but he’s been fascinated by product design, the Collector’s psychology, and brand marketing his whole life. While sharing the same strong fondness for all things horologically-affordable as Mike (his TBWS partner in crime), Kaz’s collection niche is also focused on vintage Soviet watches as well as watches that feature a unique, but well-designed quirk or visual hook.
