Baikonur is a wristwatch from Raketa.
As a designated 24-hour watch, this model features a dial with 24 hours instead of the usual 12. It was developed in collaboration with Russian cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev.
Cosmonauts need above all
The Raketa automatic movement, made entirely at the Raketa watch factory (in Saint Petersburg), has an imprinted decoration that can be seen through the open caseback: A cosmonaut flies around celestial constellations, and the famous words Gagarin uttered (as he flew into space) are printed in Russian on the oscillating weight – which means “Let's go!” in English.
