The Casio G-Shock DW-5600C and 5600E, DW 6900, and DW 5900 are Flight-Qualified for NASA area journey. On 12 April 1961, Yuri Gagarin wore a Shturmanskie (a transliteration of Штурманские which actually means “navigator’s”) wristwatch during his historic first flight into house. The Shturmanskie was manufactured at the First Moscow Factory.
At BaselWorld, 2008, Seiko introduced the creation of the first watch ever designed particularly for an area walk, Spring Drive Spacewalk. Timex Datalink is flight licensed by NASA for house missions and is one of the watches qualified by NASA for area travel.
Since 1994 Fortis is the exclusive supplier for manned house missions approved by the Russian Federal Space Agency. China National Space Administration (CNSA) astronauts put on the Fiyta spacewatches.
- In 1959 Seiko placed an order with Epson (a subsidiary company of Seiko and the ‘mind’ behind the quartz revolution) to start out developing a quartz wristwatch.
