STURMANSKIE Gagarin Retro  -  Reference number 2609/3717128

On April 12th, 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first human to travel in space in the Vostok 3KA-2 (Vostok 1) space capsule and return to Earth. During the historic flight, Gagarin wore a Sturmanskie pilot’s wristwatch. 1960 Gagarin was selected as a potential astronaut and received from March 1960 to January 1961 his relevant training. He was chosen mainly for its quiet temperament among the 20 possible candidates to leave the earth as the first man.
Gagarin started  on board of the a Vostok from the the space station Tjuratam (now Baikonur) and landed after his mission in orbit near the southwestern russian city of Engels. The flight was one of the biggest successes of the Soviet space program and is considered a milestone of the space race between the USSR and the United States.
