The Gagarin Tourbillon by Bernhard Lederer both commemorates and celebrates the 50th anniversary of this historic event.

The Gagarin Tourbillon features a 60-second flying tourbillon that rotates counter clockwise around the dial counter in 108 minutes.

An integrated rotating magnifying glass allows appreciation of details on the dial.

Looking through the loupe to the dial is reminiscent of looking out of the Vostok space capsule towards the earth.

The finely hand finished mechanical movement was entirely developed and produced by Bernhard Lederer in Switzerland.

On the morning of 12 April 1961, a 27-year-old Russian cosmonaut by the name of Yuri Gagarin walked out to the Vostok-1 rocket and was strapped into the pressurised capsule on its nose.
