Core Pendant - 'Time Flies' - Soviet Swiss

By AHW Studio


This is a piece of the former Soviet Russian re-made into a bold, wearable pendant for the modern landscape. The watches themselves were obsolete, and we thought best to dig deep into its mechanical depth to uncover its raw beauty, and justify the art-form of watchmaking and ultimately, recycle. 

This set is completely made ready to wear, and is soldered for superior strength. The parts have been fixed with extra TLC and are very much self-contained, and built for longevity.

  • Circa 1950 - 60's
  • Distinctive and original 'Geneva Stripes' vertical polishing
  • Marked with date-code, jewel-count, and 'звезда'('star') branding 
  • 19mm x 14mm
  • Lusciously chamfered edges on plates and gears
  • Silver soldered
  • '15 камни' (15 'stones') - Rubies that were inset by the original watchmaker, to reduce friction and wear
