Atlanta, GA, United States, 2007/11/20 - PK Time Group LLC, the North American distributor for Swiss watch companies Aquanautic, Clerc and Dubey & Schaldenbrand, has added VOLNA timepieces to its distribution network of fine Swiss-made watches.
VOLNA timepieces own a rich heritage in the mysterious, secret universe of the Soviet submarine fleet. Each collection is named after a submarine class of the Soviet era, incorporating design inspiration that translates marine elements into a decisively avant-garde and innovative wristwatch. Typhoon, VOLNA’s lead collection, pays respect to the largest submarine ever built of the same name with a massive case of 46 ½ mm diameter, water resistance of 300 meters, and a prominent case protecting the winding crown to ensure the water resistance. The Typhoon features a double security crown, which uses a crown actuator to engage the crown from its place within the caseband and unscrewed for time setting; and a security indicator within the dial that confirms if the crown has been properly closed by displaying either the “OPEN” position or the secure “300 M” position.
“We’re excited to represent such a unique and innovative brand”, said Ken Grazi, president of PK Time Group. “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.”
VOLNA will produce 500 watches worldwide, with only 150 pieces available in the US, exclusively through PK Time Group. Retail prices for VOLNA begin at $4,900.
About PK Time Group
PK Time Group (pktime.com) is the North American distributor of Dubey & Schaldenbrand, Clerc and Aquanautic watch brands. Established in 1997, PK Time Group is dedicated to introducing emerging European timepieces to North American watch connoisseurs.
For more than two centuries, Switzerland has been a great watchmaking nation, known throughout the world for the quality and precision of its creation. The USSR also held a strong place in the world market, thanks to many joint ventures with the Swiss, and in the 1960s the country even held the position of being the world’s second largest producer of mechanical timepieces. VOLNA has brought these two together once more, uniting Soviet historic heritage and style with Swiss technical know how. All VOLNA (volna.ch) timepieces meet the quality requirements and criteria for a Swiss Made product, using only 100% Swiss made parts. Movements are made exclusively from chronometer-tested components which meet the quality standards required by the brand. Innovation, technology and performance are the cornerstones of VOLNA’s watch production.
