Official Update / Information:
Most official formalities for the production of the watches have been settled.
The technical, financial, organisational aspects have been cleared and confirmed.
The last and the most important matter to clear before the production can be launched is a PERSONAL CONSENT / permission
of Mrs. Valentina Tereshkova.
To insure that the watches do not infringe any laws we applied for a permission to produce the limited series.
Yesterday Irina Maier received official information form ФЕДЕРАЦИЯ КОСМОНАВТИКИ РОССИИ
RUSSIAN COSMONAUT / SPACE FEDERATION http://www.fkrus.ru/ that the personal consent of Mrs. Valentina Vladimirova
Tereshkova is necessary to produce any product with her name or an mage of hers. No authority can
give thw permission, only Valentina Tereshkova in person.
Already yesterday Irina contacted the http://www.gctc.ru/ - Центр подготовки космонавтов им. Ю.А.Гагарина
"Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center" in Star City - Zvezdnij Gorodok and left a letter for Valentina Tereshkova,
which has been or will be overhandled to her personally through the cosmonaut post department in the TrainignCentre.
Due to a very intensive business schedule of Valentina Tereshkova, who is a Deputy of the State Duma
and is engaged in various activities, we should patient waiting for an answer.
Irina is in contact with the Cosmonaut Training Centre and will send an update as soon as she has new information.
We do hope to receive a positive answer and launch the production of watches asap.
Just in case the production is not possible, Irina will send all the payments back in the order
they came, one by one, to the members. All the payments are kept safely on a special account of P. Maier GmbH
to insure the prepayment to the Vostok factory.
Anyway, just because this project have not commercial purposes and it´s only a nice and historical homage, we trust in Mrs. Tereshkova to give us permissions.
Good luck, guys.
