Autumn 1941, the First Kirov Clock Plant was evacuated from Moscow to Zlatoust . The installation of equipment began at the end of November. The fist production was produced on the 25th of December. They were components of ammunition. This day is the birthday of the plant.

During the war years in spite of the hard production conditions and young inexperienced personnel the plant produced more than 300 thousand time devices and more than 14 million components of ammunition.

92% of soviet tanks and 98% of aircraft of the war period were equipped with clocks from Zlatoust. Every third aircraft had an aviation chronometer (АЧХО) made in Zlatoust.

After the war the plant began to produce devices for peaceful needs.

Fist of all the history of every decades of Zlatoust Clock Plant has been marked by development and producing of new types of devices.

The 50s. Special watches for blind persons were designed (they were produced till 60-s years). Curvemeters (curve tracers), various watches and clocks, relays for washing machines were produced (it was one of the basic kind of production).

The 60s. The plant took part in the international exhibition in Montreal (in 1967). Curve tracers and relays were given the "top"-quality mark "Q" by the state certificate board and "the Gosstandart". The first industrial series of stopwatches were designed for measuring time intervals. They were stopwatches of the 2nd accuracy class and could summarize time intervals.

The 70s. The plant began to produce timers. New models of clocks were being developed during these years. One of the first soviet electronic stopwatches with numerical indexes was design at the Zlatoust clock plant. Devices for measuring of pulse rate and breath frequency (СДП -70) were developed on the basis of this stopwatch.

The 80s. The new model of stopwatch with shock resistance of balance and 30 minute relays were designed. Conventional production of cyclic relay of time (РВЦ) was begun. The new clock model (ЧБН-160) was being produced. This model got the silver medal at the VDNH (All-Union Exhibition of Achievements National Economy in Moscow).

The 90s. All the following years the plant continued to improve its production. The plant designed switchers for electric stoves and new models of time relays. In Russia the plant still was the only manufacture of mechanical stopwatches exported to 12 foreign countries. It took part in international exhibitions and fairs (Austria, Finland, Germany and Bulgaria). On the 3-d of November the plant was given the certificate of Russian Federation "The Leader of Russian Economy".

In February of 2000 the plant was given The Golden Prize of "The Best Trade Mark" - the prize of the new millennium. The prize was awarded as a result of a referendum which was held among 14000 members of "The Club of the Trade Leaders" (Madrid).In January of 2001 the plant got the prize "For Technique and Quality".
