Venture 90 degrees north to the middle of the Arctic Ocean where constantly shifting sea ice blanket the surface, and you'll find yourself in the North Pole. The extreme conditions here require quipment that can keep up with the demands of a shifting environment. Sturmanskie watches were instrumental in Russian history and exploration.
In 1957, the Russian government ordered a series of "Arctic" watches to be developed for the first Soviet expedition to the North Pole. These legendary timepieces have been reproduced and handcrafted in the same manner they once were nearly sixty years ago. Today, "Arctic" watches are worn by polar explorers and members of the Russian Geographical Society.
