The Arctic Day-Night watch will never fail anywhere. It is no coincidence that these timepieces are chosen by polar explorers and travellers for the most challenging expeditions. The luminous nimbers are perfectly visible even in the dark, and the two time scales help quickly switch between two time zones. This stylish and functional watch uses a shock-resistant Vostok 2432 mechanism of Soviet design with automatic winding and a power reserve to last 33 hours. The piece also has excellent accuracy with daily deviation not exceeding +20/-60 seconds. The dark watchface under a light acrylic crystal features a 12-hour and a 24-hour scale, as well as the current date. A deep blue leather strap creates a harmonious ensemble with the shiny steel case. The image of the North Pole in the centre of the watch face makes it especially stylish.
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.
