An overt homage to Sputnik, the first man-made satellite launched by the Soviets in 1957, this mechanical watch draws from another era. The dial shows an overhead view of the Earth. Surrounding it is a red line that indicates the path (on a very basic level) taken by the Sputnik 1 in space. As seconds tick, the spacecraft actually moves around the dial, as if you’re watching it plot along through space. Even the hour markers pay tribute to the iconic vehicle with rocket-shaped indexes at every hour but 3, 6, 9, and 12. In the Sputnik 1’s trail, you’ll see its name and the year the aircraft launched, too. Just like the time the watch paints a picture of, the movement is old school. A manually operated mechanical movement, it offers 38 hours of power on a full wind.
