Regular price $325 Unit price  per 

The Big Zero was allegedly intended for visually impaired people but quickly gained mainstream popularity thanks to its remarkable design.  According to legend (mentioned in a 2003 Raketa promotional video about the Petrodvorets Watch Factory), in 1985 Mikhail Gorbachev, the last leader of the Soviet Union, was seen in Italy wearing this watch.  Italian press took notice, and the next day’s front pages featured a Big Zero with the headline “Russians are starting from zero!” attributing the remarks to Gorbachev.
