Developed in the United States during the Cold War and completed in 1954, the USS Nautilus SSN-571 was a very exceptional submarine in many ways. For the first time in history, a submarine powered by a nuclear reactor was built and commissioned. The fact that it was the largest submarine in the world to date was almost a minor matter. Less than 3 years later, the USS Nautilus SSN-571 covered its 60,000th nautical mile and was a "game changer" especially for the warring Soviet Union. The Americans primarily used the submarine to create a deterrent effect, as it could have sailed as far as the coast of the Soviet Union undetected. Fortunately, the SSN-571 never had to demonstrate its full capabilities, but made big waves with another milestone. In August 1958 the submarine crossed under the geographic North Pole within 4 days, which went down in history as "Operation Sunshine".
In cooperation with the Association of Veterans of US Submarine Service (German: Verein der US Navy U-Boot Veteranen) the brand new Vostok Europe SSN-571 Nuclear Submarine series was created. When developing the line, great attention was paid to a suitable design. The outer shell of the nuclear reactor can be found in the contour of the watch case. The design of the hands was based on the on-board instruments. The vertically mounted tritium tubes on the dial enable intensive and long-lasting illumination. The supplied flexible and stretchy silicone bracelet adapts perfectly to its surface: it is suitable for wearing on the wrist as well as over thick material, such as a diving suit. Of course, the watches in this series are also the perfect diving companions and are waterproof up to 30 atm. The manufacturer tests every single copy for water resistance before delivery.
Each copy is delivered in a dry box, a tool to change the bracelet and a total of 2 bracelets (silicone and leather).
