The watch mechanism working. Serviced by a master! Very rare vintage first USSR Soviet Union collection mechanical wristwatch SPUTNIK (Satellite) A late 50’s watch was made at the First Moscow Watch Factory (1Mchz) KIROVSKIE commemorating Sputnik-1, the first artificial satellite to be put into orbit around the Earth. Sputnik-1,’ or PS-1, for’Prosteishiy Sputnik’ the Simplest Satellite, was launched on 4 October 1957. This watch is all about the dial. The Earth is clearly in the center with the Soviet Union in red. The seconds hand could represent Sputnik herself orbiting around the Earth, her path marked by the thin red circle. You can see there are rocket ships marking off the hour increments, except at 12, 3, 6 and 9 (Sputnik was launched by the rocket R-7 Semyorka). Sputnik 1, “Satellite-1″, PS-1, or Elementary Satellite-1 was the first Earth-orbiting artificial satellite. It was launched into an elliptical low earth orbit by the Soviet Union on 4 October 1957, and was the first in a series of satellites collectively known as the Sputnik program. The unanticipated announcement of Sputnik 1’s success precipitated the Sputnik crisis in the United States and ignited the Space Race within the Cold War.
