This is a watch for astronauts designed in collaboration with the astronaut Sergueï Krikalev.

Sergueï Krikalev holds one of the records for the number of stays in the international space station (6 stays) and for the total length of time spent in orbit (803 days). He has received the title of Hero of the Soviet Union and Hero of the Russian Federation. He thus knows more than anyone else about the ideal watch for a astronaut.

When this watch is used in the space station, the automatic winding will not work in the absence of gravity, and the astronaut will therefore need to wind it up by hand using the manual winding function. This function includes a very special system that disengages the wheels of the automatic winding mechanism to avoid their premature use while the watch is in space.

The 24 hour dial enables the wearer to tell night from day in the space station and can also serve as a solar compass by pointing the hour hand towards the sun. This is useful if the “Soyuz” space-craft should fail to land at the right spot in the taiga and its electronic compass ceases to function (as has actually already happened).  

A very reliable Russian automatic mechanism entirely produced at the Raketa Watch Factory in Saint Petersburg, is fitted into the steel case with a titanium bezel.
