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
The name `61 pertains to the year 1961, when Juri Gagarin was the first person to journey into outer space - another important milestone in the history of space travel! The Russians conducted several impressive displays of technological superiority over the West during this period.
The origins of perhaps the most successful Swiss automatic chronograph movement of all time date back to the year 1901, the founding date of the firm J & C. Reymond Frères S.A. Later, they continued to produce the legendary movement under a new company name, Valjoux S.A. The movement was all but made redundant during the Quartz crisi of the 1970s. Today, the ETA Valjouz 7750 is produced and distributed by ETA. Many of the world's best-known watch brands incorporate this movement into their timepieces in one form or another.

Perfection down to the smallest detail
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.
