From the design mind of Alexander Shorokhoff and inspired by the spirit and times of a country that burgeoned ahead in the fields of science, politics and the arts – the CCCP watch collection draws its design inspiration from the life and times of a significant part of the modern political era.
It was the Soviet Union that launched the first manmade object into space. And it was Yuri Gagarin, the cosmonaut who took with him the hopes and dreams of mankind as he became the first human being into space – breaking free from the Earth below.
CCCP timepieces celebrate this and also the order of timekeeping and watchmaking from the storied houses of Soviet watchmakers.
To wear CCCP is to share a part of history that forever changed the modern world.
Typhoon - the legacy, the power and industrial might of the soviet armed forces is at times best represented by the range of submarines that were developed by the Russian navy.

CP-7018 Typhoon Collection
In the 1980's the Soviet Union deployed the largest class of submarines ever built called the Typhoon. Robust, bold timepieces harken to these incredible machines and the complex machineries that made them work. With a custom molded silicone strap and solid stainless steel case, these timepiece pays tribute to the historic submarines of the Soviet Union. Typhoon submarines were among the quietest Russian submarines, similar to the movement powering these timepieces, a Miyota Japanese self-winding automatic visible through the exhibition see-through case back.
Being the largest and among the most quiet, the Typhoon is one of most powerful ballistic missile submarines ever built. These submarines were developed under Project 941 as the Russian Akula class (Акула), meaning shark. These sea vessels were so large that it not only displaced 48,000 tons of water when submerging, but also could accommodate decent living facilities for the crew when submerged for months. In Tom Clancy's novel, 'The Hunt for Red October', the stealth equipped Red October was based off the same type of Typhoon-class submarine. Only six of these grand, sea vessels were built in the 1980's. Unfortunately the Russian Navy canceled their Typhoon modernization program in March 2012 due to economic reasons. The only two Typhoon-class submarines left, TK-17 and TK-20 are in reserve and will be dismantled in 2018.

****update. No issues with this watch at all. I love it.
The thing just could not keep time. I wore it the first day I got it, and set it on my dresser that night about 6 hours later. The next morning it was dead. Wore it the whole next day and woke up the following morning to a dead watch again. Rinse/repeat, same result.
Sad that the watch can do everything for me except keep time.

Great looking watch, but it's really terrible at holding time. You will have to adjust it every day.Published 16 months ago by Jared Verbois
