About Volmax, Golden Poljot etc...Edit

If Bob, an ex-employee of Microsoft, would create his own company, Wikipedia should not tolerate Bob's company to be mentioned as “Microsoft” in Wikipedia and Bob’s software’s as “Microsoft Office”. Here is what we had in the “Poljot” Wikipedia article. That Volmax is almost Poljot, since it was founded by ex-employees from Poljot, and that their mechanisms are Poljot mechanisms. Volmax IS NOT Pojot, and their mechanism are not “Poljot” mechanisms. The same for “Golden Poljot” they have nothing to do with Poljot. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Antoine de Bottens (talkcontribs) 14:33, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Section on the current Poljot International of Germany neededEdit

The company Poljot International claim to be the current owners of the Poljot brand and the direct owners of the former Soviet enterprise.

Their web site is here:

They currently sells watches branded with the name Poljot. Their about section contains the following information:

The roots of the watch brand “Poljot-International” date back to the 1930s, when the “First State Watch Factory” was founded in Moscow. In 1961, after the flight of the first citizen of the earth, Yuri Gagarin, into space, the watches produced by the factory were given the designation “Poljot” (the flight).

In 1992, the watch distribution company “Poljot-V GmbH” was founded in Frankfurt am Main (Germany), in which a new watch brand “Poljot-International” was founded in 1994 under the leadership of its managing director, Alexander Shorokhov. The newly founded brand “Poljot-International” continued the Russian traditions of the “Poljot” brand on the one hand, but on the other hand followed a fundamentally different development path: the use of high-quality materials for watch making, the creation of independent contemporary design, high quality assembly work and strict and systematic quality control.

This is confusing and also common enough that it should be covered in the article. ZeroXero (talk) 19:27, 6 February 2023 (UTC)
