A unique square-cased automatic watch with sapphire crystal, exhibition caseback and dual-finished case.


The Valentina exudes sophistication. With its subtle combination of gold, champagne and white, it will look right at home at the smartest of social occasions, yet dressed down with a chunkier, colourful strap, it is equally at home at a business meeting or doing the school run. And the pop of blue on the 12 o’clock marker and tip of the seconds hand injects a subtle element of fun.

The Devil's in the detail

Featuring an off-white dial palette, with subdued applied gold hardware, black printing and sky blue accents, the Valentina embodies the USSR arm of the Space Race.

Multiple layers of dial; the radial texture, over the angled, gold ringed chamfer with numeral printing, down to the faded gold chapter ring with minute track and luminous dots, to the two-tone dial with subtle angles, applied gold blocks and matching gold skeleton hands with luminous fill - the second hand counterweight forming an orbital track around the centre pinion. The radial track on the top surface of the dial references the gold “Voyager” records sent, long after the moon landings, into the universe, featuring sounds and pictures from Earth, in the event that extra-terrestrial beings would find it.


Through the ages we, as onlookers, have watched with palpable excitement as pioneers break through the barriers of expectation and blaze, unshackled, towards unprecedented human achievement. In the case of the Space Race, most watching were not local to the epicentres of cosmic engineering, only able to see these historical moments through the medium of newspapers and live television.

From watching news broadcasts announcing the success of Sputnik 1, Yuri Gagarin’s orbit, the Apollo 11 moon landings, Space Shuttle Challenger and Columbia disasters and onwards, through the modern era to Space-X launching reusable spacecraft and Felix Baumgartner throwing himself out of a balloon at the edge of our atmosphere - we’re all glued to screens to witness these moments for ourselves.

The design is so carefully thought out, especially the depth of the face, and the quality is immediately obvious. Brilliant!

What a stunning watch. I wasn't sure at first due to the shape, but wow the elegance and amazing design just take my breath away at times.

I'm delighted with my Valentina. It's unique, very well made and the attention to detail is exceptional. I have worn it everyday since it arrived.

The Astro's case is not a square, but a squircle - a mathematical quirk in which every side of our “square” watch is subtly curved - a squared circle - with inspiration found in an unlikely place.

The case of the Astro features a lugless design, measuring 38x38mm with recessed strap mounts hidden within the case. Keeping things surprisingly thin, the case features a tri-texture finish and a modest 10.65mm thickness.
