The dial of this model is milled directly from the rocket and bears the original colour and surface quality (wear and tear, traces of colour). Thanks to these organic traces of wear and tear, each dial is totally unique on closer inspection.
During its mission, the rocket material left Earth and made contact with space at an altitude of 45 km.
- Inside of booster (tank)
- None, original aluminium surface
Unmodified rocket material
- Over 45 km; mesosphere
High-end 'Newton' movement from Swiss manufacturer Soprod.
A speciality for watch lovers featuring Werenbach’s very own rotor (oscillating weight). The Newton is a new movement by Jura-based movement manufacturer Soprod and is incorporated into our rocket watches in the high-end ‘Top-Flight’ version (superior quality). It distinguishes itself from the competition with high precision values and a ‘bridge’ above the balance – a feature usually reserved for Swiss luxury watches in haute horlogerie. The bridge increases the shock resistance of the movement.
- Self-winding mechanical movement
- Soprod Newton, Top-Flight
4 sec/day +/-4
- Up to 44 hours
Master craftsmanship - from design to production.
The dials are produced in a multi-stage, precision mechanical manufacturing process. They pass through a number of quality checks and surface inspections before being selected for use. The unmistakable appearance of the dials arises from the combination of high-quality, rhodium-plated indices (in some models, facetted) and precision-engineered milled grooves.
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.
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’.
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!
Watches labelled as Superlative Automatic contain Soprod movements in the ‘Top’ configuration. These watches are characterised by enhanced precision and a particularly refined finish.
