    That's a handsome watch, enjoy it...you wear it well.

    You are correct, prior to the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Sekondas were produced in the USSR at two factories, the First State Watch Factory, in Moscow, and Petrodvorets Watch Factory, in Leningrad. Sekondas exported to the West during the Soviet era were often branded Raketa and Poljot. After the dissolution of the USSR, Sekonda became a British based company manufacturing its products in Hong Kong.

    As a historical side note, the First State Watch Factory in Moscow, where Sekondas were produced, actually has its roots in Canton, Ohio and Springfield, Massachusetts. In 1930, the Soviet government, through its Amtorg Trading Corporation, purchased the Dueber-Hampden Watch Company of Canton, Ohio, and relocated it lock, stock and barrel to Moscow to create the First State Watch Factory. Twenty-one Dueber-Hampden employees also relocated to the USSR to teach the Soviets watchmaking.

    The Dueber-Hampden Watch Company was created after the Dueber Watch Case Company of Cincinatti, Ohio purchased the Hampden Watch Company of Springfield, Massachusetts in the late 1800s. Foreshadowing Dueber-Hampden's relocation to Moscow forty-two years later, Dueber moved Hampden's assets and 600 of its employees, and their families, to a new factory in Canton, Ohio in 1888.

    You have to love finding a vintage watch that’s lived most of its life in a drawer! 1970’s Tradition Diver Ref. 10742 - cal. AS1913 - sold by Sears Roebuck & Co. The “cherry on top”, still fitted on original JB Champion Stretch-Link Oyster Bracelet that’s in equally great condition!!
