About the Brand:
CHAIKA WATCH COMPANY HISTORY
Chaika (Russian: чайка, meaning "seagull") Chaika is a Russian watchmaking company founded in 1937 in the town of Uglich. The factory started with the production of movement parts and stones. Gradually the full-cycle production of watches and movements was organized. In the 1980s the factory produced more than 500,000 watches per year. At the beginning of 2000 the factory started manufacturing Chaika watches in cases made of precious metals. Since 2006 the factory has completely switched to precious metal watches, such as gold (585, 750 fineness), silver (925 fineness), platinum (950 fineness) and palladium (850 fineness). Many models are encrusted with precious and semi-precious stones-diamonds, phianites, as well as colored natural stones. In addition to watches, the factory also produces a wide range of watch and decorative bracelets, chains, and coins. Currently, the Chaika watches continue to be produced at the Chaika Production Watch Factory located in Uglich.
