Uran / Уран

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, Kama, Kolos, Mir, Pobeda, Raduga, Rubin, Saturn, Sputnik, Uran, Volna, Vostok, and Yantar. 

The Uran brand (Уран, meaning "Uranus") was built around a rudimentary 15-jewel caliber 2602 movement. The Uran line of watches feature notably small cases with an unusually-narrow 14mm lug width. 


The Uran brand was retired in 1964, when the vast majority of brands from the Chistopol Watch Factory were consolidated under a single trademark: Vostok. Similar watches continued to be produced in the 1960s, but only under the Vostok name.
