This unique timepiece brings you back to the Space Age Era of the 1950s-1960s. It has a TV-Case, as well as a TV-inspired dial design. It also has a cricket alarm feature, which was a "modern" addition to wristwatches back in the day.

The POLJOT Alarm Baikonur was named after the Baikonur Cosmodrome, which is the world's first & largest operational space launch facility. Many historic flights lifted off from Baikonur:

  1. the first man-made satellite, Sputnik 1, on 4 October 1957;
  2. the first spacecraft to travel close to the Moon, Luna 1, on 2 January 1959;
  3. the first manned orbital flight by Yuri Gagarin on 12 April 1961;
  4. & the flight of the first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova, in 1963.

Today, under the current Russian space program Baikonur remains a busy space port, with numerous commercial, military & scientific missions being launched annually!
