I am UNIVAQUE and this is not my first Project. Since last project I have an order from the company STRELA get a new construction and so after my first idea originated this project. This Watch is NOT a catalog wrist watch like so many companies do. This is completely new construction for which I had worked more than 1 year.

March 18, 1965 – the space exploration milestone Alexey Arkhipovich Leonov became the first human to walk in space. He was outside the space craft for 12 minutes and 9 seconds, connected to the craft only by a 5.35 meter tether. He achieved something no human ever achieved before. A milestone in space exploration never forgotten. A.Leonov was wearing STRELA’s during mission preparation, flight training and missions.

 

The first Russian STRELA chronographs were produced by the Moscow watch factory. The production machines were bought from Switzerland and the first Strela chronographs with mechanical movement 3017 were produced with it. This caliber was based on a Swiss caliber Venus 150. These movements are no longer produced today. Here you have the possibility to get a STRELA with Japanese movement VK64a, which has been modified by Time Modul Instruments.

this results in an unmistakably '60s look that fans of the original can appreciate

I have put a lot of emphasis on the details and therefore worked long time. We chose the KICKSTARTER, because the interaction with the supporters is the best. Here one learns from each other in favor of all the participants. Suggest new additions to the project and open a new stretch goals.

Here you have the possibility to get a STRELA with caliber VK64a modified by TMI.

As a source of inspiration, I used the former Strela and Sekonda models.

In contrast to many other watch models on the market, this model has been completely redesigned and designed. The style of this watch fits well into the daily life, you can wear the watch not only with the jacket suit, but also with the sport.

The masses and the weight of the watch are so optimized that it is an advantage for men and women! Some details, e.g. the Telemeter Scala, I have equipped with light-sign print at position 12H to remind one not a professional that the telemeter scale works with the help of light and the noise. The Luma points are decent, so not like in many sports watches. This points replace the indices at positions 3H and 9H. The inner seconds and tachymeter scales are combined. The water resistance is maximized to 5 ATM, which is not standard in similar designs. The screwed case back is equipped with a laser engraving. 

The space capsule "VOSKHOD 2" is inscribed in Cyrillic: "Voskhod 2 - The first cosmonaut squad of the USSR - P. Beljaev A.Leonov - 1965 Russia STRELA". The Strap is made of genuine leather and the buckle is also laser engraved too.

       "The details make the difference"

Case - The case has been specially designed to be able to place glass directly on the case. This saves some of the height and gives a futuristic look without destroying the original '60 years of design. Mirror polished surface with hairbrush on the sides.

Glass - A Hesalite glass is round and curved in shape, mounted directly on case without of glass-lid.

Dial - The dial has been rounded and curved as in the '60. The colors BLACK matte, WHITE matte and the special design in DEPP BLUE with silken matte sun ray.

Indices - The indices are delicate and not over-sized, with the shape of Hands they complete the overall concept of a classic look. Mirror polished give a shiny look. 

SubDial Hands - here I have thought of something special. The big Hands as well as the sub dials hands are unique in this form. Also the sub dial hands contain in full length the Luma C3 lines, which is elaborately and precisely applied to the mini hands.

Pusher - the buttons position of the pushers was a challenge. Position of the pressure points in this movement are + -30 degrees, if you want to place the pushers at this position, they would be odd on this case-shape. That's why 40mm case caliber with 22mm wristbands had to be specially developed and made for this model as well as all other components.

Crown - The crown has been worked so that it has better grip without having to make it bigger. This does not interfere with the wrist.

Movement - this is a Japan TMI VK64A with hour, minute and big second hands, a small minute chronograph, small 24 hour indicator and date. According to the manufacturer, the accuracy is +-20 per month or even less.

Risks and challenges

The largest risk factor FOR YOU to our project is TIMING and DELAYS.

Still, given the inherent nature of manufacturing physical goods, unforeseen issues can arise. I have accounted for this and added a 1 month of buffer.
While i can't control every issue that may pop up, i can and will promise to communicate transparently and frequently with all our backers.
