Embark on Space Missions with the Sturmanskie Mars
The Mars is a collection made under the commission of the Russian Space Agency originally and meant for Russian cosmonauts. It was therefore built to withstand the extreme conditions in space.
This re-release of the popular iconic Mars comes in colours other than the original orang hue. It bears the trademark design elements that people have come to associate with the Mars collection.
Truly a collectible piece that is limited to 999 pieces per model.
Available in orange, yellow and olive green.
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.
