When cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human being in outer space, the influence of Slava mechanical movement was right there with him. Today, the tradition of Slava’s powerful engineering is kept alive in the CCCP Kamchatka.
In addition to being powered by the limited edition movement, this automatic watch includes a standard rotating bezel, water resistance up to 100 meters, and a screw down crown. The matching stainless steel bracelet and case houses the highly legible black, green, or blue dial, which is made even more accessible thanks to 3 luminous hands and a date window at 3 o’clock.
Named after the Russian word for ‘glory,’ Slava movement lends the Kamchatka a reliability and precision emblematic of the industrial strides made during the 20th century. With design and functions that are both practical and stylish, this CCCP automatic is a versatile and unique addition to any collection.
