Baselworld 2010: Typhoon Siberia SHCI by Volna Brings Back the Spirit of Soviet Era

Russia is not a place that you would associate with watches. In fact, Soviet Russia could certainly not feature in any of the lists which might talk about countries that are famous for watches. However, Volna has unveiled a cool new watch with a punchline that reads “Russian Heritage Swiss Made”.

It comes with the breathtaking combination of Swiss horology and Soviet Russia military technology. Typhoon Siberia SHCI by Volna comes with a reddish black style which clearly tells you that it is associated with the Soviet regime.

During the Soviet days, black was the colour of military and red was the colour of politics. The clock is made of grade 5 (G5) titanium, featuring a 46.5mm case. Thanks to several decorative satin finished ruthenium plates you could be pretty sure that you are dealing with one of the best in business.

Thanks to the “Security Hand Chronograph Indicator” (SHCI), you could be sure that water would never damage this watch. You could choose between red on black or black on black dials. Only 125 of each type would be manufactured and each would cost $15,000 or above.

Baselworld 2010 is scheduled from 18-25 March.
