Dedicated to the success of Sputnik, this watch has a classic design that fits comfortably on the wrist. Its signature feature is a dial with an image of the globe that revolves around a disk, replacing the second hand. This design symbolizes the first artificial earth satellite and that success is always on the horizon.
This Sturmanskie Sputnik is a vintage-inspired piece infused with the 50’s tasteful blend of pastel blue over black and gold background.
The world’s first artificial Earth satellite, the Sputnik 1, was launched in October 1957 where it made 1440 completed orbits of the the globe, an unprecedented technological milestone that captured the imagination of the entire world.
Sturmanskie, the legendary watch brand that accompany Yuri Gagarin as the first man in space 3.5 years later, commemorates the event with the Sturmanskie Sputnik, a vintage-inspired model with a special touch; a rotating transparant second disc with a red ‘sputnik’ silhoutte. As It makes a complete orbit every sixty seconds, it reminds us that every orbit matters, make it count.
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.
