During the Cold War, the Petrodvorets watch factory produced in secrecy Geiger watches in a very limited amount. This watch was used by Russian special forces to perform special operations.
Currently there is only one such watch left in the museum of the Raketa watch Factory. The watch dates back to 1954.
