An homage to Sputnik, the first man-made satellite launched by the Soviets in 1957, this watch draws from another era. The dial shows an overhead view of the Earth, perhaps something like you might have seen from the spacecraft itself. Surrounding the Earth is a thin red line, which represents the path Sputnik traveled over its 3-week voyage through space. Styled in a vintage font, the large Arabic numerals feature a slightly faded orange color to match the lumed hands. An independently operated fourth hand serves as a GMT indicator, allowing you to track a second time zone. Flip the watch over to find an etched caseback that further commemorates Sputnik’s momentous space flight. All four models are set on a calfskin leather strap and water resistant to 50 meters.
