Watch built from space rocket material

There are so many great watches on the market that it’s difficult to choose! Finding a design that you like is one thing, but it’s also about the details and that “extra” element that tells the right story and means something special to you. If you are interested in space exploration, the Mach 33 watch offers a unique story and contains real rocket material from Soyuz rockets that have been used to transport astronauts to the International Space Station.

Collecting rocket material for watch production

After returning to Earth, the rockets are recovered in Kazakhstan and go through an elaborate treatment process before the material is ready for watch production. The collection from the Swiss watchmaker Werenbach gives you the opportunity to wear a piece of space history directly on your wrist.

The case hasn’t got a single screw or a back casing. Instead, it’s made from a single piece of metal

The Werenbach Mach 33 watch

As a special feature, the case hasn’t got a single screw or a back casing. Instead, it’s made from a single piece of metal which gives a special look that signals bot genuine quality and simplicity.
