Cast rocket material
Supplied with an original piece of the rocket
The dial of this model comes from the booster of the rocket. During production, the raw material is melted down and the distinctive 3D profile of the dial created using our micro-casting process. This process gives rise to unevenness that can remain visible in the end product. Since no material is left over from the casting process, we package the watch with a specially cut original rocket part.
During its mission, the rocket material left Earth and made contact with space at an altitude of 45 km.

Custom manufacturing process. Unique 3D profile.
The raw dials are produced in a multi-stage micro-casting process and then finished by hand. This manufacturing process is unique among watchmakers. Only Werenbach offers aluminium dials milled from one piece with a one-of-a-kind 3D profile.
Patina and rocket dust.
The dial of this rocket watch comes from the booster. The rocket debris are personally salavaged by Werenbach in the steppe, allowing us to identify (and certify) which rocket mission the material comes from.
Soyuz MS-09. The rocket in space.
The Soyuz MS-09 carried flight engineer Alexander Gerst to space in a successful manned mission launched on 6 June, 2018. Two days later, we recovered the material in the Kazakh steppe.

Rockets fly into space in three stages. The first stage is jettisoned in two parts: one at an altitude of 45 km, the second at an altitude of 85 km. The burnt-out rocket parts fall into the uninhabited steppe of Kazakhstan. Stage 3 reaches orbit at an altitude of about 200 km, just 8.59 seconds after leaving Earth. From this altitude, the spacecraft flies to the International Space Station at an altitude of about 400 km.
There is no ‘fixed boundary’ to outer space. Rather, the transition between space and the Earth’s atmosphere is fluid. The Fédération Aéronautique International (FAI) adopts the so-called Kármán line, which sets the boundary at an altitude of 100 km. For the US Air Force (USAF) outer space begins at 80 km. Viewed according to this definition, parts of the Soyuz fairing have crossed the boundary to outer space. These rarer watch models can be identified by their white dials and the lettering ‘FAIRING MATERIAL’.
Richly detailed. Expertly executed.
Design shaped by the production process.
The unique 3D profile of the dial is what lends the rocket watch its unmistakeable appearance. Our custom production process – the only one of its kind in the industry – was developed expressly for casting original rocket material into the corresponding mould. As a result, the dials of our watches are crafted from 100 % pure rocket material.
‘BOOSTER MATERIAL’ means that the material originates from the rocket booster. The coordinates on the dial indicate the launch point of the rocket in Baikonur. ‘ORBIT 8:49 MIN’ is a reminder of the time the rocket requires to reach orbit.
A glimpse at the balance.
The back of the watch is open to allow a glimpse at its most intricate component: the balance wheel. This oscillates constantly and breathes life into the mechanics.
Design. Manufacturing. Zurich.
All rocket watches are developed in our atelier in Zurich. We pay attention to the smallest detail and are uncompromising in our pursuit of quality.
Werenbach stands for exclusive rocket watches. Unlike other luxury watchmakers, Werenbach defines exclusivity not in terms of high prices, but by the things that make its watches unique: the recycling of original rocket material, the salvaging of this material by hand and the ‘spaceborn’ philosophy that unites its wearers.
Spaceborn is the mindset of an astronaut: one who has looked down from space and admired our Blue Planet from above. In doing so, the astronaut experiences the Earth’s beauty afresh and perceives how small it is compared to the universe. This new perspective changes their thinking. They are acutely aware of our status as a tiny part of a ginormous whole.

When paying by credit card, you will be required to enter your personal 3D Secure Code. This serves as an additional protection against credit card fraud. If you wait too long to enter the code, the payment will be cancelled. It is also possible that the amount to be paid is higher than your daily limit, or that you have already used up your monthly limit. If this is the case, your transaction will be automatically cancelled. If you find that you are not able to pay via Paypal, the transaction may have been cancelled due to insufficient funds in your account. In this case, we recommend that you pay via advance payment. Don’t worry: your money is in good hands. If necessary (e.g. in the event of cancellation), your money will be directly refunded.
Yes – your watch can withstand water pressure of up to 10 ATM (equivalent to a water column of 100 m). Caution: When jumping into water, the water pressure may be higher than at a depth of 100 m. IMPORTANT: Do not move the crown under water!
Nein. Bei diesem Produktionsverfahren gibt es kein Reststück. Als Ersatz legen wir ein originales Stück Rakete jeder Uhr bei.
‘A watch with an ‘automatic’ movement is mechanical and self-winding. Caution: If an automatic watch is not worn for more than 36 or 42 hours (depending on the model), it will stop. Once you put it on, it will begin to run again. This is deceptive, however, because the spring will not have sufficient tension to run the watch on time. If the watch has stopped completely, always wind it for 10-20 seconds prior to use.
