When the first Russian explorers set foot in the arctic in 1957, they wore watches built for extreme temperatures and atmospheric pressure. Their dials featured a 24-hour scale to reflect the unique position they found themselves in, atop a polar world when day and night are virtually indistinguishable. In honor of these brave explorers, Sturmanskie has created the Arctic automatic watch. Here in a bevy of styles, this watch has all the vintage vibes you could hope for, including large Arabic numerals, luminous coating, an oversized crown, and cryrillic lettering at 12 o’clock—plus a Russian automatic Vostok 2416B movement to keep the watch in motion. And in keeping with the originals, the inner chapter ring is marked off on a 24-hour scale.
