Watches from the Open Space Heritage collection are an ideal solution for all those who don’t want to choose between style and convenience. They are equipped with the legendary Soviet Vostok 2431 movement. The large face has a 24-hour dial and a window displaying the date. The back cover is decorated with an engraved image of an astronaut on a spacewalk. A black and white watch with an informative dial, and the numbers and hands glowing in the dark. The watch case has a dark grey PVD coating that makes it strong and durable. The leather strap is adorned with white stitching, which visually links it with the indices on the dial. The case is water resistant (5 ATM) and minimalist. The dial is protected from damage by a mineral crystal, which will never be scratched or abraded even with the most intensive 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.
