Sturmanskie Sputnik S VD78/6811421

Recommended Posts

Hi, new member so go easy if these are stupid questions!

I really love the design of some of their watches and have come to the hobby from the Space angle so their story also interests me. 

I like the Gagarin commemorative watch both on design and history grounds so will be a possible 2020 purchase. 

My main question is about the Sturmanskie Sputnik S VD78/6811421. It features a small dial showing Sputnik above the 6. Does this dial rotate or do anything, eg similar moonphase dial or is it just ornimentation?

Happy hearing comments on both watches

The entire sub-dial rotates 360 degrees every minute - it's just a replacement for a second hand.

Thanks Lampoc, I do love it as a well conceived relevant design feature. I've found some photographs now showing the dial various positions.
