Venture 90° North to the middle of the Arctic Ocean where constantly shifting sea ice blanket the surface, and you’ll find your self in the North Pole. The extreme conditions here require equipment that can keep up with the demands of a shif ting environment. Sturmanskie watches were instrumental in Russian history and exploration.

In 1957, the Russian government ordered a series of “Arctic” watches to be developed for the first Soviet expedition to the North Pole. These legendary timepieces have been reproduced and handcrafted in the same manner they once were nearly sixty years ago. Today, “Arctic” watches are worn by polar explorers and members of the Russian Geographical Society.

Sturmanskie

In 1949 the manufacturing of Sturmanskie watches was started. They were standard issue to all air force pilots at the time and were never sold in shops. On 12 April 1961, Gagarin became the first human to travel into space in Vostok 3KA-2 (Vostok 1) and return. During his historic flight he wore Shturmanskie wristwatch – which thus became the first watch to travel into Space and demonstrated perfect functioning in the conditions of zero-gravity.
