The first watch in open space !
 
This was the first Chronograph in the First Moscow Watch Factory with a caliber 3017. This watch had a tachymeter and a telemeter scale. This special watch was used by the soviet cosmonaut Alexei Leonov in 1965 who was the first man who got out of his space ship into the open space.

This chronograph was produced in Moscow from 1959 to 1979. In August 2001 Poljot International presented the replica of this historic timepiece.  It was limited to 1000 pieces in white and 1000 pieces in black dial , chronograph movement Poljot Valjoux 3133  and with special pilot leather strap.
2006 Alexander Shorokhov, CEO of the company "Poljot International", visited the famous cosmonaut  Mr. Leonov in Moscow and presented him in recognition and memory of this historic moment one of these "Poljot International" Chronographs.
 
This Poljot International Chronograph has a high quality polished stainless steel case with a diameter of 39 mm, a height of 14 mm, 20 mm lug width and a hardened, slightly curved mineral glass. #
The matt-white dial has strong luminous index points and luminous hands. The date display is between the position "4" and "5".
