New! Sturmanskie Sputnik with Poljot manual winding caliber 2609H and flying Sputnik satellite as second hand!
This new Sturmanskie is dedicated to the Sputnik flight of 4 October 1957.
Sputnik (Russian Спутник for "companion", in astronomical meaning "Trabant" and "Satellite") was the name of the first ten Soviet satellites that reached an Earth orbit. Sputnik 1 was on October 4, 1957, the first artificial Earth satellite in orbit and is considered to be the starting signal of the Soviet space flight. The word Sputnik belongs to the 100 words of the 20th century and is in some (especially Eastern European) countries a synonym for satellite. (source Wikipedia)
In my own collection I own and wear (see picture below) an old "Sputnik" from the 60's - I am happy that Sturmanskie now presents this new, beautifully detailed watch with original Poljot manual winding caliber!
Brushed stainless steel case with 40mm diameter, 11mm height and 20mm bandwidth. Hardened, slightly curved mineral glass.
Decorated watckback with the limitation number of 2000 pieces.
Poljot manual winding caliber 2609H with 17 jewels, 21,600 halfrotationsper hour , shock protection and about 40 hours power reserve.

Especially nice: the blue globe with the red colored Soviet Union.
A turning plexi disc is fitted above the globe and the "Sputnik" functions as a second hand and circles the earth!
