    Spent fifteen days in space, July 3-19, 1974

    Soyuz 14 / Salyut 3 Flown Omega Flightmaster Chronograph Worn by Soviet Cosmonaut Yury Artyukhin, with Original Box. This is a manual wound, 17-jewel, caliber 911 movement, steel case 43mm watch; the steel link band has a deployant clasp. Omega made these from 1969-1972; they were developed for and marketed to pilots. Soviet cosmonauts are known to have often wore them on missions. This particular chronograph flew on Soyuz 14 to the military space station Salyut 3 (as engraved on the case back). This was the first successful Soviet mission to a space station and the only one to Salyut 3. Soyuz 14 also brought Artyukhin (and Pavel Popovich) back home. Artyukhin was a highly decorated Soviet cosmonaut and engineer and was later involved in the development of the Buran shuttle program. This watch was originally purchased at an early Sotheby's Space auction, Lot 77. General wear, not tested. Rare original Flightmaster box included. From the Estate of Malcolm S. Forbes.
