Sturmanskie Gagarin Titanium

On April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin’s mission of being the first man to explore space made Front Page headlines on newspaper around the globe. On his wrist, was the first watch to escort him into space–Sturmanskie, which also planted its own stake in history that day

The exquisite design of the Gagarin Vintage Collection pays tribute to Yuri’s astronomical feats. First in space, the Sturmanskie withstood severe conditions, including zero gravity, strong accelerations, unpredictable vibrations, and varying temperatures. Handcrafted with precision, this watch will make a statement all its own on your wrist.

Yuri Gagarin took the Sturmanskie watch, made by special order, into space on April 12, 1961. In weightlessness the watch worked flawlessly.  Later this legendary watch was transferred to the factory museum.  And later, in 1963, the first woman-cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova flew into space with the Sturmanskie watch.  

Since 1961 the Sturmanskie have been the official watch of the Soviet and Russian cosmonauts, which helped in difficult situations, withstanding severe tests in zero gravity, magnetic fields, extreme shocks, vibrations and temperatures.  Today, looking at this model, we understand the value of design and aesthetic value, so, repeating it in new proportions, Sturmanskie kept the most recognizable design details with respect for the original source. 

The new line is a model made in titanium case with a carefully redesigned crown, keeping a feeling of 60th.
