GAGARIN, Mechanical chronograph - hand winding
Limited edition

On the 12th of April, 1961, the space ship “Vostok” was launched with the world’s first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin on board. “...I am coming into the shadow of the earth” sounded his voice in the ether. In the headquarters, his words were not grasped immediately... It was the beginning of a new era, in which human beings were able to see the dark side of our planet. The legendary flight only lasted 108 minutes, but these minutes separated the “Yesterday” from “Today”. The chronograph “Gagarin” is dedicated to this historical event.

The typical tachometer scale, the silhouette of the globe on the dial and the inscription “The first man in space” commemorate the dream come true. The chronograph is produced with movement cal. 3133., moon phase indication, or with the Swiss automatic movement 7750.ETA. Limited edition of each version: 500 pcs."ausverkauft / sold out"
