NIKA is a leading manufacturer of jewelry watches in Russia.
The history of the brand began when its founders decided that the jewelry accessories should attract attention not only with their beauty, but also with the greatness of the idea embedded in them. Since 2003, NIKA has aimed to achieve an association “made in Russia” with quality, reliability and alluring design.
The New Story of Success
Currently, highly skilled craftsmen produce unique gold and silver watches. Although, in former times it all started with a small independent manufacture that combined all sorts of people - experienced entrepreneurs and businessmen, creative artists and, of course, the watchmakers. They did not stand aside during the closing of the watch factories, as well as when valuable personnel and unique equipment were not demanded. For the purpose of preserving and enhancing the experience of working under the Soviet watch brands, the founders of NIKA saw the need of purchasing the machines and the production lines, as well as organizing new jobs for the skilled professionals.
The brand NIKA encompasses the priceless experience, and sustains the traditions that have opened up a new start of watchmaking in Russia.
The success story of NIKA Watch Factory is accomplished by the success story of these people.

Being Loyal to Traditions
Being dedicated to the work, the masters of NIKA preserve and pass on the secrets of the jewelry watch production. The tool workshops are dedicated to the independent production of the necessary equipment - from punching dies in the manufacture of the watch cases to the production of machines for their processing. The design bureau is fully concentrated on the embodiment of the author’s fantasies, and most importantly the global fashion trends. Exclusive series and individual orders are handled by a special division of Faberge college graduates, designing the dials in the most sophisticated technique of hot enamel.
The doors of NIKA Watch Factory are welcoming anyone who has an interest in the chain of manufacturing processes. We feel honoured to regularly conduct career guidance tours for schoolchildren and are looking forward to the day when their children come to work with their parents. The successors of the watch dynasties and the brilliant results of their work prove that the future of the watch industry belongs to those who are faithful to traditions and their dreams.
