Dive like an Amphibian
Humans view the sea as eternal and immeasurable, but once we find ourselves in that element, it always tests us for strength. And that is when we need the extra accuracy and reliability, so we create devices that help us locate ourselves in time and space in this infinity. It has always been so.
The Amphibia by Sturmanskie is powered by a Russian mechanical movement with automatic winding - the 2416 Vostok calibre. Its case is made of surgical grade stainless steel. The Amphibia is water resistant to 20ATM, made possible in part by a thick spherical glass, screw-in cap and cover.
The Amphibia comes with a black rotating bezel and stands out thanks to contrast beige luminescent indices and clear geometric lines. On the caseback is a relief image of a rider on a dolphin, the Amphibian Man - a tribute to the Heritage model.
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.
