Firgo

After World War II, the Chistopol Watch Factory focused heavily on wristwatch production. This lead to a proliferation of discrete brands in the 1950s, all powered by Chistopol movements. These brands included Almaz, Chaika, Druzhba, Firgo, Kama, Kolos, Mir, Pobeda, Raduga, Rubin, Saturn, Sputnik, Uran, Volna, Vostok, and Yantar. 

The Firgo brand was produced in the 1960s. Firgo watches were powered by an 18-jewel caliber 2209, among possible others. The Firgo brand was likely retired around 1964, when the vast majority of brands from the Chistopol Watch Factory were consolidated under a single trademark: Vostok.
