Not quite, but still a solid-brand never-the-less. A Lithuanian-Russian owned watch marque, that delivers a quality instrument at a decent price-point. These are large robust watches, that make a statement. Mostly, commemorating key moments in Soviet history. This one features a nice contrast between the PVD-coating, and orange-face. Easy to read, with great lume. This is my first-purchase from Island Watch. I first heard about Marc from Youtube's 'Urban Gentry', a watch reviewer, and very class-act himself. You can order from Island in complete confidence, knowing that Marc has your back, he will answer any/all queries, and see to your satisfaction. I'll definitely be a repeat customer, and have my eye on the Squale-brand.
