Sturmanskie Chronograph Airman
A Collectible Reissue
The Airman is an iconic chronograph created and worn exclusively by officers of the Soviet Air Force.
Popular for its heritage and design, the Airman has been remade and relaunched by Sturmanskie with modern updates.
The watch is powered by an original Poljot 3133 chronograph movement and features a standout tonneau case shape. Truly a collectible piece with only 200 pieces available worldwide.
The Russians were the first to explore space on 12 April 1961 when cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, orbited the Earth in his Vostok-1 for one hour and forty-eight minutes. On his wrist, he wore a Sturmanskie watch, the first special timepiece in the world designed and manufactured to go in to space.
Withstanding the severe conditions of zero gravity, strong accelerations, unpredictable vibrations, and varying temperatures, Sturmanskie was the first brand to make astronomical feats in the watch world.
Its innovation was owed to the nautical and aviation chronometers originally developed for the Military Air Forces and Navy by the First Moscow Watch Factory.
The brand Sturmanskie was first launched in 1949. Back then, it was exclusively available for the Armed Forces and Navy of the USSR. It was only in 1983 that Sturmanskie watches were made available to the general public.
Sturmanskie designs continue to be inspired by and pay homage to new frontiers, adventure and exploration.
