Pairs Well With: Raketa Big Zero


For this edition of PWW we took a look at a very distinctively styled Raketa, the Big Zero. From the late 70’s – early 80’s this model is a simple 3-hand manual wound watch with a distinctly bold dial design. The totally oversized numerals and equally aggressive teeth are love-it or leave-it details,

but the watch has a unique appeal, sort of like a font heavy poster or nicely designed menu. These are not the most common of Raketas that one can find on the bay, only popping up here and there, but they generally go for less than $100, making them quite affordable. So, when thinking about clothing the idea of the “urban photographer” came to mind. Whether a tourist or just one of those people whom constantly has a camera, and takes time to notice little moments and things of accidental charm.
