Univague Strela - A luxurious Antiquity

I always had a thing that when women are born accessorized with beauty then why every other brand offers them with more and more jewels and gems? Whilst on contrary this brutal world always connects masculinity with decency, far off of all glitz and glam.

If we take a minute to ensemble the long knitted list of men’s accessories its goes from glasses, ties, wrist watches … and umm what more? The truth is it ends here, how mean is that! First men are not offered with enough glam then this entire world gathers together in admiration of feminism.

Okay fine, I heard you ‘that’s what make men decent and luxurious’.  I with all due love and solace wants to deliver a public service message to this dear world: “We men, got beauty too, it is only that if you make some time to coalesce and create enough luxury for us, we will feel good and make you feel a lot better than usual. Thank you. “ 

Classical watches on a man wrist catch the eye and brain at the same pace. It somehow got the ability to convey a lot information about its wearer.

In times today wrist watches are categorically divided in many types such as mechanical, chronograph, diving, automatic, quartz, smart, pilot watches. Obviously complicated men like to have complicated assets. So, as for them Univaque STRELA is fully packed of surprises.

A detailed mystery, historic and modern, subtle and radiant, chronograph and mechanically tech drive, all in one dial. Before digging into its perks, let us shortly discover a little about its luxurious antiquity.


Strela is a Russian brand named after Mr. Sturmanskie.

Strela means arrow and it is deeply connected with Russian movement. It was first introduced in 1959 and was only available for soviet air forces and higher officials, since it had that precision factor in measuring time in sky and field.

As aviator glasses (more commonly known as aviators) were considered a must have for air force officers, Strela in its very early years got that hype and became a official object of preference for the pilots and cosmonauts.

What a blessing in disguise this pretty luxury was. A tiny miniature tried to carry the weight of world on his shoulders.


ALEXEI LEONOV, A Russian Soviet cosmonaut who made world’s first ever walk in space on April 12, 1965. His experience, expedition and dare was something which will never be forgotten.

Alexei was wearing STRELA during his mission. 

After him another cosmonaut VLADIMIR KOMAROV made his walk in space accompanied with YURI GAGARIN in spacecraft. Both of them were also wearing STRELA up there. Because of its tremendous accuracy and unburdening abilities, it was always loved by the spacemen. 

Since then STRELA made space a part of their design as paying homage to these brave souls. May the departed souls rest in eternal peace.


The watches had two registers, 45 minutes time elapsed system and a constant seconds hand and a central chronograph hand for measuring the elapsed seconds. These classical watches have chrome coated stainless steel casing and a stainless steel case back. 

STRELA’s design kept on improvising time to time from tachometric rings to telemeterious rings with bedazzled dials. Because of its unique and multi-functioning properties Strela was increased in demand with every update they made.

As per information in 1980’s the total count of Strela sold watches reached 100,000 pieces. Woah! I can completely understand the love and raised demand curve for this luxury, as for the historic background and supreme delicacy it lived with throughout. One thing to not forget their vintage watches still have the ability to whitewash any other expensive watch.


Univaque Strela is a chronograph watch. A simple word for chronograph is stopwatch where you can easily determine time lapse and distance covered. Till the date Strela is available in various designs and updated models. Comparatively to other brands, Strela is lean and tenuously subtle in its built.

Usually mechanical and chronograph watches are considered heavy in weight.  On contrary, STRELA’s mass and weight is so optimized that can be casually worn by everyone without having any additional stiffness in wrist. It is available in Retro, Minimalist, Sporty and in a Cosmo built. Size of its regular dial case ranges from 40mm-50mm ideally designed to fit a range of wrists.

Dial glass is a slightly box curved and round in shape. It carries a dual register layout with a luminous hour and minute needle for a low light visibility. Date aperture is at the bottom of dial. Best thing in STRELA is they got up to 50m water resistance ability.

Dials and straps both are available in multiple colors. For dial, company deals in black, white and in special edition a sunray blue color. As far strap is concerned; it is made up of genuine leather and a laser engraved buckle. Case-back is significantly screwed down.

The perk is it is still engraving commemorating Voskhod2, the soviet space mission during which Sir. Alexei Leonov was wearing it.

Briefly, Univaque STRELA Cosmoswatch is a combination of both updated and historic features which takes its wearer on cloud 9 with all hidden surprises. If you’re planning to surprise your man with something he will never be bored of, STRELA’s are there for you as a savage.

Since they are elegant, multi-functioned, luxurious antiquity yet above all it is economical.
