Exclusive collection of 20 watches celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ISS in Space
This limited edition is based on the Raketa watch model “Baikonur” that was designed by the watchmakers of the Raketa Watch Factory together with the legendary Russian cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev.
Each of these 20 watches has its own serial number engraved on the case back. One of these watches will be sent to space in the ISS.
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).
When this watch is used in the space station, the automatic winding will not work in the absence of gravity, and the cosmonaut 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.
