SPACE & AVIATION

The Soviet space program (Russian:Kosmicheskaya programma SSSR) comprised the rocketry and space exploration programs conducted by the former Soviet Union (USSR) from the 1930s until its dissolution in 1991.
 
Over its sixty-year history, this primarily classified military program was responsible for a number of pioneering accomplishments in space flight, including the first intercontinental ballistic missile, first satellite (Sputnik 1), first animal in space, the first human in space (cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin), first woman in space (cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova), and first spacewalk (cosmonaut Alexey Leonov).
A number of very important and groundbreaking accomplishments throughout Russian space history. Almost all those important milestones in history were in one way or another linked by a watch. 
On this website you can find a couple of these famous watches and their story.
