About the watch factory
As a result of the escalating military situation, on October 22, 1941, work was stopped at the First State Watch Factory. A mandate ordered the evacuation of the factory to Zlatoust, a city east of the Ural mountains some 1600 kilometers from Moscow. This was not unusual; as a result of advancing German troops, some 1500 factories were relocated, in over 1800 trains, to safety behind the Urals.
Over the next five decades, the Agat Watch Factory continued to be an industrial powerhouse, producing timers, switches, clocks, electronic stopwatches, and of course watches. The factory is still operating today.
