After the Second World War, the "First Watch Factory" concentrated on the manufacture of wristwatches. In the 1950s, the First Moscow Watch Factory introduced various watch brands, all powered by Poljot movements. These brands included Antarktida, Kirovskie, Kosmos, Mayak, Moskva, Orbita, Pobeda, Poljus, Rodina, Signal, Sportivnie, Sputnik, Stolichnie, Strela, Sturmanskie and Vympel.
The Vympel brand (Вымпел, meaning "pennant") was first introduced in 1961. The most notable feature of this watch was the movement, an ultra-thin, shock-resistant, 23-jewel Caliber 2209. At just 2.9mm thick, Caliber 2209 represented a tremendous technical achievement, as well as one of the thinnest three-hand movements in the world. In 1963 the movement was awarded a gold medal at the Leipzig Trade Fair. Even by today's standards, the range of Vympel watches remains impressively thin, measuring just 6.5mm from the glass to the case back.
In 1964, the Vympel brand was retired, just three years after its inception. In that year, the First Moscow Watch Factory underwent a major rebranding and began marketing all subsequently manufactured watches under the Poljot brand. While the Vympel was a short-lived brand, it helped inspire a long line of future dress watches made by Poljot, Luch, Sekonda and other foreign brands.
Caliber 2209 was produced in large numbers until the collapse of the USSR.
