I also bought the Avi-8 from the same fella, The battery was kaput but fired up immediately with a fresh one!

Voshkod 1 was interesting because it carried a 3-man crew, none of whom wore space-suits, since the capsule was originally designed for a 2-man crew, and there was no room.  Voshkod 2 was the Leonov spacewalk mission, and funnily enough I was just looking back at what I paid for my Sturmanskie homage to the NII electronic watch worn by Belyayev on Voshkod 2  ...

No photo description available.

I am about to flip it if you are interested to complete your 'set'!  (there were only 2 Voshkod missions)  from photos I have seen of Belyayev on training flights, this colour metal is the closest to the original.

It's taken six weeks to get here from Russia. 

I am waiting patiently for this ...

the crown is correct but unrecognizably worn - I have a much much better one on another 15j case - do I swap it?

I got my daughter one of these, cost about £25 from Ukraine. I have no illusions about it being genuine or really old, but as an Aerospace Engineering student (that most girly of subjects), a Russian manual wind space watch goes up there with an ageing LR Defender as her car - its like a badge of pride!

she has been running it for about 18m with no problems other than finding a Nato small enough for her wrist and forgetting to wind it daily when she first got it. She loves it.

The Pobeda/Zim movement that powers these watches are about as basic as you'll get, and run for years. :thumbsup:

Great thread and what a strange little Sturmanskie that is, dear Mart - I do rather like it.

Thanks also to JohnBaz for showing that black Sturmanskie chronograph with Seiko meca-quartz movement: I've had one of those in plain stainless steel for some time, meaning to look it up, and now I know what it is...

:biggrin:

For anyone interested in Russian Space Watches

http://www.hablemosderelojes.com/forum/showthread.php?73014-Los-relojes-espaciales-de-las-misiones-sovieticas-desde-Vostok-1-(1961-)-hasta-la-actualidad&s=2ea387c439ca8675f1fe5bf33c3662f6

This chap has collated loads of auction pages and provenance photographs.

Nothing else would have persuaded me to buy a 'Civilian' (chrome cased) Sturmanskie!
