Understatement in its finest form

One of Werenbach’s first rocket watches, the '57 Automatic model was introduced to the collection in autumn 2013 featuring aluminium casing. Its simplicity is its defining feature. What’s more, only its wearers know its history: the origins of the watch are never made publicly known, rendering this timepiece understatement in its finest form.

    SRE-Stainless Steel

    Produced from the rocket motor

    SRE stainless steel is produced using a metallurgical process. SRE stands for “Soyuz Rocket Engine”. The first step of the process involves the reduction of carbon to 0.17% (decarburisation). The second step involves the addition of 2.8% nickel and 2% molybdenum.

The story to the name

'57 Automatic

The name '57 pertains to the year 1957, when the Russians succeeded in launching Sputnik, the first artificial Earth satellite, into orbit around the Earth: a milestone in the history of space travel!


Cal. 2892-A2

The story of caliber 2892-A2 begins in 1773. On the instruction of its former parent company Eterna, ETA undertook detailed design works for a new movement - the "Eterna-Matic 3000 Dato" - in 1961. By the time of its launch, this movement was already being celebrated as a milestone in watchmaking history. Later, the movement was further enhanced by ETA and, in 1975, was placed on the market under the name ETA 2892. Following a third round of improvement, the movement saw a breakthrough in its current incarnation. Today, the ETA 2892-A2 is integral to the inner workings of many expensive luxury watches.

Soyuz rockets

To the frontiers of space and back

Soyuz rockets are launched in the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and complete their journey into space in three stages. At a height of 45 km, the booster of the first stage is jettisoned. This is followed by the fairing at a height of around 85 km.

There are no fixed boundaries in space; rather, the transition between the Earth's atmosphere and space is fluid. The Fédération Aéronautique International (FAI), the International Air Sports Federation, has adopted Karaman's definition, setting the boundary at 100 km. For the US Air Force (USAF), space begins at 80 km. According to this definition, the Soyuz fairing components have crossed the boundary into space. These models can be idenitified by their white or white-red faces and the marking "Soyuz Fairing".

Soyuz TMA-18M

SOYUZ TMA-18M was the name of a flight mission to the International Space Station (ISS). It was the 44th visit of a Soyuz spacecraft to the ISS and the 150th flight in the Soyuz programme. The Soyuz spacecraft undocked Soyuz TMA-16M as a crew return vehicle since the Soyuz spacecraft have only a 210-day design life.
