Yantar / Янтарь

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 Yantar brand (Янтарь, meaning "amber") was an uncommon brand produced only for a short period around 1960. The larger model featured a unique case design not found on any other Soviet watch. The brand was retired in 1964, when the vast majority of brands from the Chistopol Watch Factory were consolidated under a single trademark: Vostok.
