For over half a century, these watches have repeatedly surfaced in the thick of events that made the headlines. Sturmanskie entered world history as part of the most successful stress test for technology and man. The main confirmation of that was the first manned space flight in April 1961.
Initially, Sturmanskie was designed for army and navy officers, and was not available to the public until 1983. Astronauts from France, Germany, Japan, India, Poland and other countries who participated in joint flights under the International Space Programme took their Sturmanskie watches with them on space missions. Ever since the brand was launched in 1949, Sturmanskie have shown only the best qualities, being accurate, reliable, and durable.
