Luxury Watch Commemorates First Man in Space

Did you know that this week marked the 50th anniversary of Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin's journey into space? Neither did we, but because of the Gagarin Tourbillon watch, we do now. The watch celebrates the day, April 12, 1961, with a truly complex design.

The Gagarin Tourbillon features a 60-second flying orbital tourbillon that rotates counterclockwise around the dial counter in 108 minutes—the time that the cosmonaut stayed in orbit around the earth. An integrated rotating magnifying glass allows appreciation of details on the dial. Cool Touch: Looking through the loupe to the dial is reminiscent of looking out of the Vostok space capsule toward the earth. Note: The mechanical manual winding movement was entirely developed and produced by watchmaker Bernhard Lederer in Switzerland. The Gagarin Tourbillon is a limited edition of 50 pieces in platinum.
