The Sturmanskie Open Space NE88/1855555 is created to mark the momentous occasion of man's first adventure into space. Within it, we can find the spirit of two cosmonauts' historic space walk back in 1965.
The Sturmanskie Open Space NE88/1855555 is created to mark the momentous occasion of man's first adventure into space on March 18th, 1965. That day, humankind's first space walk in history was performed by Alexei Archipowitsch Leonow, one of two cosmonauts of the Woschod 2 spaceship. During that event, Leonow was wearing a Sturmanskie watch. Now, the Open Space line is created and dedicated to that historic moment and to the cosmonauts of the Woschod 2.
While the innards of the watch are made in Japan, the Sturmanskie proudly shows off its Russian aesthetics on its façade. This is apparent in the dial execution, going from the markers to the tachymeter scale on the outer rim of the dial and from the indicator hands to the arrangement of the sub-dials. The watch comes powered with the high grade Seiko NE88 automatic chronograph movement that not only tracks the hours, minutes, seconds and date but also offers class-leading chronograph functionality as exhibited in the triple sub-dial chronograph configuration on the dial.
The unique and limited edition Sturmanskie Open Space NE88/1855555 attaches to the wrist with a versatile blue leather strap and steel buckle. The robust and durable stainless steel case measures 44mm in diameter and is given a polished and matt finish. It ensures that the watch remains water resistant up to 50 metres. Protecting the dial is a sapphire crystal that has been given anti-reflective coating to enhance legibility.
