Luch watches are rare timepieces with an interesting history. These pieces were produced at the only watch plant in Belarus. Back when this mechanical watch for women was manufactured, the country was still part of the USSR (the former Soviet Union).
Soviet watches are very appreciated by many collectors, thanks to their unique designs that tell a story of a different era in our history. If you're on the hunt for a special timepiece, we recommend this vintage Luch watch for women. With a retro square-shaped dial and a slim, elegant leather bracelet, this is the kind of timepiece you see in old movies.

About mechanical watches
A mechanical watch is a watch that uses a clockwork mechanism to measure the passage of time, as opposed to quartz watches which function electronically via a small battery.
A mechanical watch is driven by a mainspring, which must be hand-wound periodically. Its force is transmitted through a series of gears to power balance a weighted wheel that oscillates back and forth at a constant rate. A device called an escapement releases the watch's wheels to move forward a small amount with each swing of the balance wheel, moving the watch's hands forward at a constant rate.
Mechanical watches are classic vintage pieces, beautiful displays of minimalism, and old-school features. Some of the most elegant mechanical watches, for true vintage enthusiasts, are now available in our vintage mechanical watch collection.
