PK Time Group LLC, the North American distributor of Swiss watch brands Aquanautic, Clerc and Dubey and Schaldenbrand, has announced it is the new North American distributor for Volna, a Swiss-made watch brand of Russian heritage.
Volna timepieces have a rich history with the Soviet submarine fleet, and in recent years, the brand has incorporated Swiss watchmaking know-how. All pieces meet the quality requirements and criteria to bear the “Swiss Made” label, using only 100 percent Swiss-made parts.
Volna's “Typhoon” watch features a 46 mm case, water-resistance to 300 meters and a double security crown
In a nod to the brand's nautical heritage, each collection incorporates design inspiration culled from marine elements. All of Volna's collections are named after a submarine class of the Soviet era, with “Typhoon,” the brand's lead collection, paying respect to the largest submarine ever built.
According to PK Time Group, Volna will produce 500 watches worldwide, with only 150 pieces available in the United States. Retail prices begin at $4,900.
“We're excited to represent such a unique and innovative brand,” PK Time Group President Ken Grazi said in a statement. “We were impressed with Volna's commitment to engineering exclusive and technologically advanced timepieces, and wanted to bring this level of progressive design to the American customer.”
