      cheers Harlan, Ihavent worn a diver for over a week.
      I think the effect is emphasised by the dry/parched matt style of the leather as well as the light.
      Got it on leather because its too cold to swim

    Oh Harlan, Scouser has freakin’ good reasons to be fully into the things!

    Sturmanskie 3133 chronographs like his have flown on many Soviet space missions, and in fact, the one he’s wearing today is the civilian variant of the Sturmanskie 31659. Many watches have been space flight approved, but very few watches have actually spent time outside the hatch on EVAs (Extravehicular Activity, i.e. Spacewalk). This is one of them. Here is the air-force variant of Scouser’s watch worn by Russian cosmonaut Alexander Poleshuk of the Soyuz TM-16/MIR-13 expedition, during a 179 days flight mission in 1993.






    Here is another identical watch worn by Research Cosmonaut Toyohiro Akiyama, the first Japanese to have flown in space. These are photos from his flight to the Mir Space Station aboard a Soviet Soyuz spacecraft in 1990.

    But you are right in noting this as a “cool watch", i.e. “cool” because some of its siblings has been in -270.45 Celsius, the temperature of space.


    A watch journey that also serves the betterment of others is one worth taking.

      I was looking at Moonwatches the other night, and came across some paperwork, detailing all the Omega NASA units, who had them, when they were uplifted (and from where) the exact straps supplied, everything, they had the last couple of serial digits blued out, otherwise it was really complete. Sad that some of the most important ones 'went missing/lost in post etc;' though.

      Don this post was interesting, never knew all that, thanks.

      It seems that, in Russia, propaganda is allowed to flourish in politics, but not in their domestic watches, where honesty and unpretentiousness are still cultivated. Your Russian watches are part of a rich tapestry of living history, so be proud of owning them, Scouser—don’t call them “cheap” ...They have more horological relevance and achievement to their names than most watches I have in my box

      I think what she is says is "I told them that the termination of the off shore permits would have no impact on Taranaki jobs, and they believed me!" 4.5k people and $2b in exports but its not milk so feck um. im staggered that there are still people who think oil and gas is only used for fuel?
