Our watches are the only ones of their kind on the planet! Every Werenbach watch contains genuine rocket material, guaranteed with a signed certificate of authenticity.
The material comes from manned Russian space rockets of the Soyuz family which carry the Cosmonauts to the ISS. They are launched in Baikonur Cosmodrome and complete their journey into outer space in three stages. The burnt-out rocket stage I is jettisoned in flight, falling back into the Kazakh steppe.
Werenbach travels into the steppe to recover the material in person. In this way, we are able to guarantee its authenticity and verify which rocket the material comes from.
The flight into space.
There is no fixed ‘boundary to space’. Rather, the line between space and the Earth’s atmosphere is fluid. The Fédération Aéronautique International (FAI) adopts what is known as the Kármán line, which sets the boundary at 100 km (62 miles). We recover the first stage (Phase I: launcher (booster), windshield fairing of the rockets nose cone (Phase II: fairing)).
