Vostok-Europe Atomic Age


Atomic Age – period of rise of nuclear technology which started from the launch of the first nuclear reactor in 1942

and proceeded by further developments of the nuclear industry which is an important parts of modern technological era.

The Vostok-Europe Atomic Age watch design combines a unique techno-futuristic polygonal case,

tritium illumination and the best automatic and quartz movements.

The Vostok-Europe Atomic Age collection consists from 3 lines

dedicated to the three greatest nuclear physicists of the 20th century:

Robert Oppenheimer, Enrico Fermi and Andrei Sakharov


Automatic Line Enrico Fermi

Enrico Fermi (1901–1954) American physicist and the creator of the world’s first nuclear reactor,

the Chicago Pile-1. He has been called the “architect of the nuclear age”

and the “architect of the atomic bomb”.

Fermi was awarded the 1938 Nobel Prize in Physics;

made significant contributions to the development of statistical mechanics,

quantum theory and nuclear and particle physics

Chrono Line Andrei Sakharov

Andrei Sakharov (1921–1989) Soviet nuclear physicist,dissident, Nobel laureate,

and activist for disarmament, peace and human rights. Being a chief-designer of the Soviet thermonuclear weapons,

Sakharov later became an advocate of civil liberties and civil reforms in the Soviet Union,

for which he faced state persecution;

these efforts earned him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1975

Multifunctional Line Robert Oppenheimer

J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904 –1967) head of the Los Alamos laboratory. Was called as “father of the atomic bomb”

for his role
in the Manhattan Project that developed the first nuclear weapons.

After the WWII, Oppenheimer became chairman of the influential

General Advisory Committee of the newly created

US Atomic Energy Commission. He used that position to lobby for international control of nuclear power

to avert nuclear proliferation and a nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union
