Holding the distinction of being the first watch in space on the wrist of Yuri Gagarin, puts the Sturmanskie brand truly in a stand-alone class. Add to this the record for a watch deployed the longest in a zero-gravity environment, and Sturmanskie is truly the leader in space horology.

Built today by the Volmax company of Moscow, Russia, the brand has seen significant developments since Gagarin wore the simple, 17-jewel model in his Vostok capsule. With chronographs, world timers, mechanical alarms and styles up to 45 milimeters in case size, today's Sturmanskie combines history and modernity in ways few other brands can.

Sturmanskie, which translates as navigator in Russian, has kept time on the International Space Station, in open space and even in deep sea subs. As one of the most prolific brands used by the Russian Navy, Sturmanskie is as ready for life below the waves as it is above the clouds.

I received this watch today and I'm impressed. For the money, the fit and finish are excellent. It is an extremely comfortable watch to wear as well. I have a Breitling Navitimer and it reminds me of the fit and comfort of that watch. Only two small quibbles. I wish the knob on the left that controls the inner bezzle was just a tad larger. Also, the watch band is a faux alligator which is not of the same caliber as the rest of the watch. I think it would look better with a black pig skin or shark skin band. Other than that, an excellent value!

This is one of the finest timepieces that VOLMAX has ever produced, though there is a larger version I much prefer this 42mm version. It's very comfortable, love the brushed steel, the dial design is just fantastic (all in cyrillic) with the 24hr dial as an additional complication. If you have a chance to buy it don't hesitate, it's a must-have russian watch for collectors.
