Product Description
The first-ever human to enter space, Russian pilot Yuri Gagarin, wore a Sturmanskie mechanical watch just like this one. Originally standard issue for air force pilots in 1949, these Sturmanskie watches maintained performance in the toughest conditions, even at zero gravity Read More

First, delivery took such a long time. Second, when it arrived the watch doesn’t even keep time. We are talking about difference in hours within a day!!

Defective out of the box
The watch stops keeping time when it is off my wrist for any extended period. If I fully wound the watch in the morning, wear it all day, and take it off at night, every morning I come back to find it frozen with the second hand right around the 54 second mark. The watch can never get through it's full power reserve without freezing up at some point. Clearly no one from Sturmanskie took any time for QC. Fortunately Drop is doing the right thing and offering a return and refund.

A Classic! Appearance Like No Other
When you wear this watch, it will be unlike any other. The large numerals make it very easy to read and tell the time at a glance. The 40 milometer diameter is perfect for most wrists. I love the way the stitching on the band reflects the red second hand. Also, the second hand extends all the way to the minute indicator, making it very useful. The antique styling is superb. This watch has a military essence. You will not find another like it. It is unique in the watch space. And. it has historical provenance as well. If you are a collector, you will not regret this purchase. This is a fun watch to wear!

I have to send in the watch for repair after less than 2 weeks and the waiting time is 6 weeks. A grave mistake.

Just read your callous remark. If you're seller of this model that attitude is highly unethical to put it mildly. You're taking people's good money and knowingly selling junk. Wonder if there is a law against that.

I really like the effort to match the design details of the original Sturmanskie Gagarin. It is scaled up in size and made of titanium, but still has a high-dome crystal and the tall/skinny crown like the old watches have. Those are 2 details that the previous 40th anniversary reissue did not have. Something not mentioned in description is anti-glare coating of the crystal. It was a nice surprise when I started photographing mine. I was not chasing that angle where I didn't get glare. It does leave a bit of a blue hue as is common for the fancy anti-glare coatings.
40mm is a nice size to wear. The original strap is not the best quality leather, sort of stiff. The buckle is also titanium. This is not a watch to buy for it's lume quality. It glows for maybe 2 minutes. My movement is keeping time within specs, gaining around 25 seconds/day. Pretty average.

The 40th anniversary edition from 2001 used a Poljot cal. 2614, and those are all handwinder 17j movements. The 30th anniversary edition from 1991 used a quartz movement as I understand.

Watch is beautiful, love the aesthetic. The movement isnt working well though, even right out of the box. The watch loses a lot of time every day, and the hands have a tendency to freeze during nighttime hours, at any level of winding (but it only seems to happen when I take the watch off my wrist, which is super weird, maybe it’s a temperature thing?). The quality issues are annoying enough at this point that I’m going seek a warranty claim.

Sounds about right for a Russian watch.
