The Sturmanskie brand can boast a long-standing tradition, which from the very beginning of its existence has been founded on manufacturing extremely accurate and unique watches. The company was established in 1949 as a response to the needs of a military school in the Soviet Union. Then, each graduate with a diploma was honoured with a Sturmanskie watch, thanks to which the brand gained an elite status.
Over time, the models became widely available. It was the pilots, however, that used Sturmanskie watches most willingly. The globally recognized prestige of the brand was won in 1961, when Yuri Gagarin wore the Sturmanskie watch for the first space conquest. The brand’s rich history proves the importance of manufacturing a perfect watch, and a number of satisfied customers confirm that the idea has remained the same for over 70 years.
