The Open Space Day-Date Automatic line is a new interpretation of the classical watch. The collection is distinguished by a modern design with complex lines and shapes, a functional dial showing the time, date and day of the week, and a reliable mechanical Seiko NH36 calibre with automatic winding. A functional men’s watch in classic design and a stylish black and silver colour scheme. The silvery indices look like complex-shaped batons. In addition to the time, the watch also displays the current date and day of the week. The black leather strap fits comfortably on the wrist. The steel case has heightened strength and reliability. On the rear side, there is an engraved image of a cosmonaut hovering in zero gravity during a spacewalk.
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.
