Soyuz 02

Raw IV Superlative

1.622,28  (ex. tax)

The material of this watch was cut directly from the tip of the rocket. It has reached an altitude of 85km. The surface of the dial was left original. It has small irregularities that bear witness to the rockets mission.
This exclusive and unique timepiece is finished to the last detail. The back has been left open to reveal the high-end Soprod manufacture movement by Werenbach. A watch for discerning watch lovers. It can be compared with the best Swiss watches.

Special feature: Limited series of 60 pieces dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the first space flight. The watch comes with a special certificate, special packaging and with an astronaut key ring. The material comes from the Soyuz MS-09 rocket mission.

Original rocket aluminium.

Supplied with the leftover part of the rocket fragment.

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 85 km.

Swiss watchmaking at its finest.

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.

Powered by
  • Self-winding mechanical movement
Movement
  • Soprod Newton, Top-Flight
Timing tolerance
  • 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.

Patina and rocket dust.

The dial of this rocket watch comes from the fairing. 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 rocket itself.

The rocket gives the space watch its ‘face’. Each dial retains the original colour and traces of the space mission. The rocket gives the space watch its ‘face’. Each dial retains the original colour and traces of the space mission. ‘FAIRING MATERIAL’ means that the material originates from the fairing (nose cone) of the rocket. 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.

Anniversary Edition.

This year marks 60 years since cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to journey into space. To commemorate this, all Soyuz 02 rocket watches produced in 2021 will take form of a special anniversary adition. The back of the watch is open to allow a glimpse at its most intricate component: the movement. This allows a clear view of the balance wheel, which oscillates constantly and breathes life into the mechanics. The open back also lets the wearer observe the ‘bridge’ above the balance wheel or the custom Werenbach rotor.

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.

Spaceborn.

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.

FAQ.

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.

Standard size straps fit the majority of wearers. Our straps are available in the following standard sizes: S – 16-18 cm, M – 18-21.5 cm, L – 21.5-23.5 cm. Steel straps can be customised to fit your wrist. As such, they are only sold in one size.
The strap comes in one size and can be adjusted to the wearer’s wrist by removing individual links.
Yes, you can. The strap comes with enough metal links for any wrist measurement. If you have a wide wrist, you’ll only need to remove a few links. if you have a narrow wrist, you’ll need to remove several. A screwdriver is included with the strap. This can be used to loosen and retighten the screws on the side.

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!

Yes. However, if your rocket watch has a textile or leather strap, be aware that this will reduce the life of the strap significantly. If you are planning to wear the watch in water, we recommend a rubber or steel strap.
The watch glass is scratch-resistant, since Werenbach uses genuine sapphire crystal in all of its watches. The casing of the watch is made from steel and, as such, is not scratch-resistant. Caution: The glass on the reverse of the watch is not sapphire glass and is therefore not scratch-resistant.
No. A forceful impact can cause the watch glass to crack or shatter.
Yes. Werenbach uses Swiss movements from the brands Sellita, Soprod, STP and Ronda.
Yes – we use Super-LumiNova luminescent material that glows at night. For this to work, the phosphorescent pigments must be activated beforehand via daylight or a lamp. Be aware that if you cover the watch with a piece of clothing, this ‘charging’ process will not take place.
Yes, the remaining part of the rocket fragment is enclosed with the watch.

Watches labelled as Superlative Automatic contain Soprod movements in the ‘Top’ configuration. These watches are characterised by enhanced precision and a particularly refined finish.
