Werenbach Spaceborn Watch Collection

A small watch company by the name of Werenbach has just announced an impressive new line of mechanical watches they’ve dubbed the Spaceborn Watch Collection.

Each one of their watches features something totally unique – a piece of the Russian Soyuz rocket. While we are always happy to do more than our fair share of chest-beating when it comes to the accomplishments of the U.S. space program, it is impossible to deny Russia’s contribution to space-flight. Their Soyuz rocket was the first to put a satellite in orbit, the first to put a man into space, and the only rocket still taking astronauts to the I.S.S. In order to get their hands on these materials, the team at Werenbach went out into a military area in Kazakstan, picked up the stage 1 rocket dropped from a recently launched flight, and took it to Switzerland to be made into a watch. The watches all boast a waterproof rating down to 50m, a mechanical movement, and come with faces in different colors. The white dial is from the top of the rocket, the gray from the booster shell, the orange from the shell of the rocket engine, and the silver from the inner surface of the rocket. All have different signs of wear and tear that are unique, making each of these watches truly one of a kind.
