About the watch factory

In early 1930s there were already two functioning watch factories. In 1935 decision was made to build another factory to produce women’s watches.

After long negotiations french equipment LIP was purchased and the construction of factory begins in Penza(on Penza bicycle factory). In 1938 the first watches were produced.

The factory produced mainly womens watches of small caliber movements. However, some men’s watches were also produced.

The first watches bore no name on the dial, followed by those marked ZIF, then those with the 3GChZ factory logo, and finally those branded Zvezda (Звезда, meaning “star”). Zvezda watches were produced for both men and women from 1940 until the 1960s. These watches were also some of the first to be exported abroad.
