Anchar The fastest submarine in history The world’s fastest submarine is the Soviet K-162 “Anchar”. She reached a world record speed of 44.7 knots (82.8 km/h) during test trials in the 1970’s. Built to be a super-fast attack sub, the titanium hulled Anchar carried the NATO distinction of “Papa” class. Regarded as the predecessor to the more widely known “Alpha” class, the Anchar served the Soviet navy at the height of the Cold War and holds speed records up to today.
Ekranoplan The Caspian Sea Monster Ekranoplan KM (Ground Effect Vehicle) is the biggest this type vehicle ever. It's also known as The Caspian Sea Monster. Ekranoplan is still holding the world record for lifting the heaviest load off the ground. Even than the largest modern cargo plane Antonov An 225 “Mriya” can't handle such load. Ekranoplan had an air of mystery around it for a long time. It was tested in secrecy on the Caspian Sea from 1966 to 1980.
Energia The most powerful space rocket system The most powerful space launcher in history and universal space rocket system “Energia” was created between 1976 and 1987. With a payload capacity of nearly 100 tons, “Energia” advanced the development of space research in unprecedented ways. The Soviet space program further intended the development of a whole range of unified heavy and super-heavy rocket-carriers based on the “Energia” project. The rocket class depended upon the special configuration of the side blocks and the modification of the central block, which would have allowed delivery into geostationary orbit of a wide array of space crafts up to 200 tons.
Everest The deepest cave Dedicated to the 5th anniversary of the World Record of the Lithuanian-Ukrainian expedition achieved bottom of the “Everest Underground”- Krubera-Voronia cave, the deepest cave in the World (2197 meters). During the expedition all speleologists checked time by Vostok Europe watches with tritium tubes.
Expedition Polar research pioneers СЕВЕРНЫЙ ПОЛЮС 1 was the first Soviet manned drifting station used for scientific hydrological and geographical research of polar area. The North Pole-1 polar station was opened on June 6, 1937 some 20 kilometers from the North Pole. It operated for 9 months, during which the ice floe travelled 2,850 kilometers. The expedition ended 75 years ago. On February 19, 1938 the Soviet ice breakers took four polar explorers – hydrobiologist Piotr Shirshov, geophysicist Yevgeny Fiodorov, radioman Ernst Krenkel and the leader Ivan Papaninov from the station close to the eastern coast of Greenland.
Limousine The luxury car of Soviet government GAZ-14 luxury car is one of the greatest achievements in Soviet automotive history. Built exclusively for Soviet high-ranking officials and politicians from 1977 through 1989, these luxury seven-seaters were famous for their advanced technological design and comfort to rival any of the American equivalents. The multiple innovations in the GAZ-14 became a platform for advanced features incorporated into the mass production of many other Soviet-era cars.
Lunokhod-2 Walk on the moon Lunokhod 2 was more advanced and the last of two unmanned lunar rovers landed on the Moon by the Soviet Union as part of the Lunokhod program on January 15, 1973. Lunokhod 2 operated for about 4 months, covered 37 km of terrain, including hilly upland areas and rilles. The apparatus sent back 86 panoramic images and over 80,000 TV pictures. The 37 km journey remains the longest any robotic rover has ever been driven on another celestial body. Many mechanical tests of the surface, laser ranging measurements, and other experiments were completed during this time.
Mriya The Record Braker The first Antonov An-225 Mriya (Dream in Russian) prototype flew on 21 December 1988. It was created and built by Antonov Design Bureau (headquarters in Kiev, Ukraine) known for their outstanding achievements in producing heavy transport aircraft. Following the first flight in 1988, the An-225 set 106 world records in just one flight. The An-225 was designed to carry piggy-back loads which are too big to fit into its fuselage, for example, the Buran Space Shuttle. The An-225 was also going to be used as the first stage of the space launch system. The updated An-225 entered service in 2001 as a commercial transport aircraft for heavy and oversized freight. The plane is operated jointly by Antonov and the British firm Air Foyle.

USS SSN 571
USS SSN 571 Nuclear Submarine The USS Nautilus SSN-571 was the world’s first operational nuclear powered submarine and the first submarine to complete a submerged transit of the North Pole on 3 August 1958. The new watch line was produced in agreement with “Association of Veterans of US Submarine Service” and due to idea an support of Craig Hester – VE distributor in the US. SSN571Nuclear Submarine watches are made from stainless steel (polished, Black PVD and stone washed Black PVD) , bronze and titanium.
