About the watch factory
The assembly of Salut pocket watches started in Q3-1946 at the Second Moscow Watch Factory. The movements were identical to those produced for the Molnija brand beginning in Q2-1947, but the case, crown, dial, and hand designs were completely unique. The case, in particular, had much thinner chrome plating, and the blued-steel hands are particularly unique among Soviet pocket watches.
The Salut brand was short-lived; before the end of the 1940s, manufacturing was being transferred to Chelyabinsk Watch Factory.
The Slava factory (known originally as the Second Moscow Watch Factory) was the second non-military watch maker established in the Soviet Union, in 1924.
The watches of this brand have always been meant for civilian consumption, without military or aerospace pretensions. As of today the factory no longer produces.
