A Watch for Cosmonauts

Courtesy of Raketa
This is the Baikonur 0247 from Raketa.

Per the Raketa site, this watch was a design collaboration with Sergei Krikalev, a Cosmonaut who has had six separate missions to the ISS (International Space Station), and if Wikipedia's info is accurate?  Krikalev has logged a total of 803 days and 9 hours and 39 minutes in space. So it's safe to say that he might have a pretty good handle on what is useful on a manned space mission.

Back to the watch -

It is stainless steel, 43 mm in diameter with a 24 hour set-up for time indication.
