There are things that time has no power to change. No matter how far humanity has come in space exploration, Yuri Gagarin’s first flight into space will forever remain an unrepeatable feat. The Gagarin Classic 33 watch was created for those who are not obsessed with momentary fashion trends, but who appreciate the beauty and genius of simple solutions. A minimalist yet versatile and functional watch. There is nothing superfluous on the small round dial – only the time indices and large luminous hands. The wide black leather strap fits comfortably on the wrist, does not chafe the skin or wear out for a long time. The back of the watch is engraved with a unique number, protected by a screw-down transparent cover. The watch is powered by the Russian-made Poljot 2609 movement with manual winding.
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.
