Vostok Europe Energia 2 Chrono

Vostok Europe Energia 2 Chronograph

Energia (russ. Энергия) is not simply the name of a space launcher but also the perfect expression for sheer power it created. The development of this scientific masterpiece started in the 1970's and ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Soviet scientists put special attention to flexible usage of the super-heavy lift launch vehicle as well as a high payload of around 100 tons.
Although Energia performed only 2 flight both were a success right away. The first launch in 1987 brought the military satelite Poljus (approx. 77 tons payload) into orbit and in 1988 the spacecraft Buran (approx. 80 tons payload) left Earth attached to an Energia rocket.
To recognizing these achievements Vostok Europe developed the Vostok Europe Energia 2 line. It's absolutely unique design and super durable build are the key features of these watches. Not only the 30 atm water resistance, that are checked by hand for every single watch in a tedious process, but also the usage of GTLS tubes on the dial to indicate the time in any situation speak for themselves.
The brand-new and long-awaited Energia Chronographs are finally here. Each piece comes in a XL Dry Box and includes a tool to change straps. You may also pick every watch either with 1 leather & 1 silicon strap (as a set) or with a rough stainless steel bracelet.

Sturmanskie Heritage Actic

Sturmanskie Heritage Arctic Automatic

When, back in 1957, the first Russian polar explorers set foot on the eternal ice of the Arctic, their wrists were adorned with the watches of the First Moscow Watch Factory (Russ.: "Первый Московский Часовой Завод"). They were specifically made for the purposes of the expedition taking into account ultra-low temperatures and atmospheric pressure. The unique dial with a 24-hour scale reflected the specifics of the place - the polar night, when the time cannot be determined by the sun.
Except from the 24-hour movement the new line has the same hereditary features: clear, easy-to-read dial, durable steel case, large and comfortable crown, reliable Russian Vostok 2432 automatic movement are embodied in the new Arctic line. In the first version of the Arctic the hour hand made 1 rotation every 24 hours, now in the new line the time indication is more common nowadays, i.e. the hours are indicated on a 12-hour scale. For the 24-hour function that is especially important in polar conditions in which the sun does not indicate day and night an alegant complication is responsible: A rotating disc in the center of the dial with the map of the North Pole outlined in silver or gold paint. The concept of the collection is clearly expressed in the vintage design of the 42 mm case with ergonomically curved lugs and the spherical glass, smoothly continuing the shape of the case and a massive conical crown.
Each watch comes with a pre-mounted leather strap in an original Sturmanskie gift box. Additionally a watchmaker checks every watch for technical function such as operating deviations and operating accuracy.

Vostok Europe Rocket N1 Power Reserve

Vostok Europe Rocket N1 Automatic Power Reserve

The brand new Vostok Europe Rocket N1 Automatic Power Reserve line is finally here! A precise Japanese SII NE57 automatic movement is used as the centerpiece in these watches. A date calendar and a power reserve indication are not the only eye candies: Both modifications received own hands and make a striking 5-hands watch design. The operation of the movement is ensured both by 20 ATM and a shock absorber without abandoning the quick-change function of the date calendar.
Additional features are the exhibition case back and the vegetable tanned leather straps - handmade in Italy! Although this way to process leather takes longer and is more expensive, the strap is created without damaging the environment and without chemical residues that might irritate the skin on contact.
The new line is available with leader straps and stainless steel bracelets and comes in a beautiful Vostok Europe gift box.

Sturmanskie Gagarin Vintage Retro

Sturmanskie Gagarin Vintage Retro

Juri Gagarin went down in history on April 12th, 1961 as the first human in space. During the space mission Gagarin was wearing a watch made by special order by Sturmanskie. In zero gravity the watch worked flawlessly and precicely - becoming an icon up until today. It is not a surprise that Sturmanskie has been the official watch supplier of the Soviet and todays Russian cosmonauts since 1961.
The well-known and desirable Gagarin Vintage Retro series is extended by 3 new models. In addition to the existing stainless steel and black-PVD plated versions, dark grey YTAS post-processed cases are available now.
The heart of the new "Grey" Gagarin Vintage line with its typical Retro style design is the famous mechanical hand wound movement Poljot 2609. Brand new are also 2 models with 33mm diameter cases which are absolute eye-candy.
