The Sturmanskie brand is one of the most recognizable Russian watch companies. Their high-end products are the result of years of experience, while their prestige came from the elite background of their original owners. A Sturmanskie watch even appeared in space on the hand of Miroslav Hermaszewski.
The Sturmanskie brand is a long-standing tradition, whose premise since its inception has been the production of extremely precise and unique watches. The company was founded in 1949 as a response to the needs of a military school in the Soviet Union. Every graduate with a diploma was honored with a Sturmanskie watch, thanks to which the brand gained elite status. Over time, the models became widely available, and the target group most likely to use Sturmanskie was pilots. The brand's true and globally recognized prestige was earned in 1961, when Yuri Gagarin took a Sturmanskie watch with him on his first conquest of space. The rich history of the brand testifies to the importance placed on producing an excellent watch, and a number of satisfied customers confirm that the idea has remained the same for more than 70 years.
Among the watches of the Sturmanskie brand, we can choose from several collections. Each of them relates in some way to the theme of space. Often the theme for their creation was the "space race" between the United States and the Soviet Union, which took place in the 1960s. One of the most famous series is Gagarin - dedicated to the famous cosmonaut who was the first man in space. These are often limited edition watches, such as the model 2609-1701702, produced in a quantity of 500 pieces. With their design, they directly relate to the last century, kept in vintage style. Sputnik models, on the other hand, were created to commemorate the launch of the first artificial satellite into space. Some of them were kept in uniform, subdued colors, while others were decorated with the image of the Earth globe placed on the dial.
One should not forget the Arctic line, which was created as a special commission for the first-ever Soviet expedition to the North Pole. The dials of the watches included in the lineup feature legible Arabic indexes and classic colors. Strela is a unique collection. Initially, it was produced exclusively for high-ranking generals in the Russian army. Today, it can be enjoyed by everyone. The Open Space series, on the other hand, is a commemoration of the first open space walk, which took place on March 18, 1965. The ship used for the flight was the Voskhod-2.
Among the powerful collection of Sturmanskie watches you can also find the "Traveler" line, which was created for people who are constantly traveling, as the watch dial features 24 time zones. The watches are made of the highest quality materials, such as stainless steel and straps made of natural leather. Inside you'll find automatic and quartz mechanisms, which come from renowned manufacturers such as Vostok, Miyota and Seiko. Sturmanskie watches are models for people who are passionate about aviation and history, and the watch is not meant to be a mere timekeeper, but a timepiece with which to tell a story.
