The First Moscow Watch Factory (Russ: Первый Московский Часовой Завод) had the task to create a unique watch in 1976. "Ocean" (Russ. Океан) became the name of the iconic chronograph worn exclusively by officers of the Soviet Navy. It was only in 1983 that this line was released to the civilian population.
The remake of the popular and well-known line is here now. Sturmanskie kept the centerpiece of the original line - an original Poljot 3133 chronograph that is precise and durable at the same time. Newly designed straps and the tonneau case ensure this watch is a real eye-catcher.
This watch comes with one pre-mounted leather strap in a beautiful Sturmanskie packaging.
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.

Always wanted a Sturmanskie Okeah Chronograph and finally found it at Red Army Watches. Its a watch with a rich heritage and history connected to the Russian Navy and Space program. Love the unique design and color of the watch. The watch wear nicely on the wrist thanks to its cushion shape and the dial is legible even though it may look busy. I would highly recommend it.
