ZIM Pobeda – ЗИМ Победа (Завод имени Масленникова – Maslennikov Watch Factory)

ZIMThe factory opened at the beginning of the 20th century and originally made detonators for the military. Later during Soviet times, production moved to watches. The factory made both ZIM and Pobeda watches. ZIM watches were of lower quality than Vostok or Poljot but there are many different examples and diverse designs. The factory was made bankrupt in the early 1990s and the factory site has since been redeveloped.
