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 numbers are perfectly visible even in the dark, and the two time scales help quickly switch between two time zones. A timepiece with a classic look and a striking original detail: the North Pole pictured in the centre of the watch face. Produced in classic colours – black, white and gold – this model uses a time-tested Russian-made automatic movement. The calibre Vostok 2432 is distinguished by its reliability, shockproof properties, a power reserve of 33 hours, and excellent accuracy (the daily deviation is no more than +20/-60 seconds). The dial is covered with a durable, but lightweight acrylic crystal, which cannot be scratched or abraded even through the most vigorous use.
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.
