Did you know that the first man to set foot on the Geographic North Pole was Russian? Nansen, Peary and Amundsen all reached only the magnetic pole, but fell short of the Geographic pole. It was soviet explorer Ivan Papanin who, in 1937, became the first man to plant his flag on the North Pole, landing his plane 8 kilometers from his target before finishing on foot.
As Soviet space missions became longer, cosmonauts were equipped with 24-hour watches. Orion pays a tribute to them, with its black and blue dial inspired by the giant screens of a control room and its theme recalling the space conquest, from Sputnik to Curiosity. By the way, it is a control screen from the movie The Martian that inspired our designer to conceive this watch!
