    Thanks for the history lesson! Always interesting to read about the space race.

    If he died in 1999 I'll guess from his photo taken in 1989 that he was about 80 years old. Based on that he was born in the early 20's and doing his army service in the 40's. On that basis the watch has to be early.
    Close, but not quite!

    All has been revealed!

    I've been missing threads like these lately. A truly wonderful writeup on this neglected sliver of history.

    Hats off, Arizone!

    Re: The Actual Very First Watch In Space

    OMG thanks for this good sir! It's nicely written and very interesting.
    I hope this news makes Sturmanskies a lot cheaper lol.
    Also, if anyone is interested, I saw 3 similar watches on the bay.
    the crown on this looks wrong and it's more expensive
    this one looks beat up but appears to be accurate
    this one is the best one I can find. It has a nice patina on the dial
    I'm not sure about the authenticity of these but they're the best I can find on the bay.

    Re: The Actual Very First Watch In Space

    What is a good price for this watch in very good condition? It's a good looking watch anyhow and the historical aspect makes it even more interesting. Is it a scarce or hard to find item?

    You and me both, wow that looks like a nice one! I would have gladly paid twice that. If anybody runs across a nice one with a reasonable price please let me know.

    Perhaps this might interest you, you may also be able to negotiate a better price
