Molnija (sometimes transliterated Molniya) was a Russian watch and clock-maker based in
Chelyabinsk, Chelyabinsk Oblast. Molnija (Молния) is the Russian word for lightning
The Molnija clock and watch factory was opened on November 17, 1947. The company's main customer was then the Soviet Union Department of Defense, providing them with wrist watches, pocket watches and table clocks. Unique clocks were also produced specifically for use in Soviet tanks, fighter aircraft, submarines and, eventually, spacecraft.
The mechanism of ( Molnija ) is a Soviet copy of the Swiss watches Rolex and Cortebert, Molnija movement is 100% identical with Cortebert 620,which,in it's turn was used by Rolex in 1938,when the company made the first wrist watch for Panerai.
