Gagarin Day-Night is a line of watches with a real masculine character. The owner of one of our timepieces is always ready for new discoveries and exploits. The original Soviet Vostok 2432 movement is hidden inside a stylish modern case with an image of the globe on the dial – reliable, accurate, and capable of ticking steadily through the most challenging conditions. A rather large men’s watch (44 mm) with a discreet but expressive design. The black dial with luminous indices and hands is protected by a durable mineral crystal. It tells both 12-hour and 24-hour time and shows the current date. A second time zone is customisable. The wide black leather strap with contrasting red stitching fits comfortably around the wrist. The watch is easy to wind and is highly accurate due to the time-tested Soviet mechanical calibre.
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.
