Often overlooked in history books, the Soviet Union played a major role in the space conquest by being the first state to send an artificial satellite in space – named Sputnik; followed by the first living being – a dog named Laika. A few years later, Yuri Gagarin was the first man in space and Valentina Terechkova, the first woman. Watchmaking played a particularly important role as early as 1924, when the Soviet Slava movement came into being, equipping the vast majority of CCCP watches. We find in the DNA of this Russian brand all the military and industrial heritage that made its fame during the space conquest.
