Swiss watchmaker Swatch has added a new model to its Destination watch collection that is dedicated to Russian cities, a brand spokesperson told

The sights of the Russian capital, such as the Kremlin, Red Square and St. Basil's Cathedral, inspired designers to create the Evening Moscow model, which has a red strap and a dome depicted on both sides of the dial. The model dedicated to St. Petersburg is called "Peter I". The main colour is blue and the dial shows a ship.

Swatch is a mass-market brand founded by Nicolas George Hayek in 1983 that sells quartz and mechanical watches.
