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, the date and day of the week, and a reliable mechanical Seiko NH36 calibre with automatic winding. A round men’s watch, 42 mm in diameter, with luminous markers on the dial. The rear side is decorated with an image of an astronaut on a spacewalk based on a painting by Alexei Leonov. The cosmic character of this model is emphasised by the deep blue colour of the watch face and the leather strap. It goes perfectly with its smooth steel case. The dial is covered with a mineral crystal, high-strength and scratch and abrasion-resistant. The timepiece is highly accurate, with the power reserve to last 41 hours.
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.
