Feel the experience of flying to space
Officially made from a metal piece of the “Soyuz-2.1а” space launcher and from the fabric of the Russian space suit “Sokol”, this 24-hour automatic watch brings you very close to the experience of flying to space.
This rocket took off on 14 October 2020 and made a record breaking 3 hour flight from the Baikonur launch pad to the ISS. The Russian cosmonauts who were in this rocket participated in the production of this watch. They both explained that the only crucial complication needed in space is a 24-hour movement to enable them to distinguish day from night in the ISS (where they have 16 sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours).
While you are still on Earth, you can wear this watch with a leather strap (offered with the watch). Both the “space suit” strap & the leather strap have a “quick-change” system so that you can easily change them depending on where you are: training on Earth or flying to Space!
This Raketa model, limited to 300 pieces, was produced at the Raketa Watch Factory in collaboration with the Russian space agency “Roscosmos”. It is delivered with an additional (leather) strap, the official insignia of this space mission, a brochure providing more detailed explanation and a certificate of Roscosmos (certifying the true origin of the rocket metal and the space suit fabric).
