Slava in Russian ‘’Cлава’’ means "Glory" but commonly referred to as "Slava Lava!" During the 1930’s the factory developed wrist watches, alarm, wall and car clocks, pocket watches and chess clocks. Slava was the second non-military watch maker established in the Soviet Union. Their watches and clocks have always been intended for civilians and not the military or aerospace.

One of the strongest links to the West was the production of Slava watches for the British Company Sekonda. This relationship lasted from the 1960’s until the collapse of the USSR.

The old factory building in Moscow has recently been demolished but the Slava factory continues to produce watches today.
