For more than 60 years, watches from the Arctic Heritage collection have been constant companions of Russian polar explorers and travellers. Their reliability has been confirmed by the most severe trials and in the most challenging conditions. Today, we have made a reissue of this legendary product range available to you. This watch is a new interpretation of the classics. Its design is based on a light retro concept. A medium-sized beige dial with a 24-hour bezel and a minimalist orange-brown leather strap are in harmony with the simple steel case. The Vostok 2431 automatic movement provides a power reserve of up to 31 hours. The daily deviation is small for a watch of this type, no more than -20/+60 seconds per day. The watch face is covered with light acrylic crystal, and the luminous numbers are perfectly readable in any light.
The Russians were the first to explore space on 12 April 1961 when cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, orbited the Earth in his Vostok-1 for one hour and forty-eight minutes. On his wrist, he wore a Sturmanskie watch, the first special timepiece in the world designed and manufactured to go in to space.
Withstanding the severe conditions of zero gravity, strong accelerations, unpredictable vibrations, and varying temperatures, Sturmanskie was the first brand to make astronomical feats in the watch world.
Its innovation was owed to the nautical and aviation chronometers originally developed for the Military Air Forces and Navy by the First Moscow Watch Factory.
The brand Sturmanskie was first launched in 1949. Back then, it was exclusively available for the Armed Forces and Navy of the USSR. It was only in 1983 that Sturmanskie watches were made available to the general public.
Sturmanskie designs continue to be inspired by and pay homage to new frontiers, adventure and exploration.
