    Did PANERAI just become the 7th wrist watch brand... to be directly exposed to outer space ?
    ISS Expedition 66 crew, during the January 19, 2022 EVA (spacewalk) Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov probably wore a PANERAI Radiomir wristwatch strapped pver the lefthand Orlan spacesuit glove...
    Bringing the number of wrist watch makes directly exposed to outer space to 7 different wrist watch brands:
    (Omega, Glycine, Bulova, Fortis, Fiyta, Seiko and Panerai)
    Can You guys & girls spot the exact black dial model ?
    Thx in advance !

    Looks like a smaller, 42mm Rad, wirelugs.
    I’m stabbing at 338, titanium, manual, gold hands.

    Edit: I don't think it's 338, as I only see one line of text on dial. 338 has two lines.

    1966, Sept 13 = Glycine Airman automatic ( Gemini XI - Charles Conrad )
    1971, Aug 02 = Bulova 88510 chronograph ( Apollo 15 - David Scott )
    1994, Sept 09 = Fortis Official Cosmonauts ( TM-19 Mir-16 - Yuri Malenchenko )
    2008, Sept 27 = Fiyta chronograph ( Shenzhou 7 - Zhai Zhigang )
    2008, December 23 = Seiko Spacewalk Springdrive ( ISS Exp 18 – Yuri Lonchakov )
    2021, September 03 = black chronograph ( ISS Exp 65 - Oleg Novitsky )
    2022, January 19 = Panerai Radiomir ( ISS Exp 66 – Anton Shkaplerov )

    I don’t think this is a Panerai at all.

    Im no Panerai expert, but this sort of cushion case is seen where in a Panerai?

    Look at the large expanse of case between the edge of the dial and the case edge

    Looks to me more like an amphibian 090 shaped case

    I’m leaning toward a 090 type case like with 300 M, having a bezel more like

    in fact, in the photo, you can just make out some hints of a quarter bezel of red, the large arrow hour hand, etc (here’s a photo with saturation pushed to max)

    He is a hard guy to pin down with his watches - one of these might give a clue in terms of case shape?
    The first one looks similar?

    As an aside is it my imagination of did Dubrov have some sellotape action going on?
    Good spot for this mission by the way @SpeedyPhill

    Hard to say... He is rarely wearing watches inside the space station, and couldn't find any other picture with a watch this shape (could be seen with Fortis, X33, some digital maybe casio etc)

    Some more pictures

    Here we can see the 12 and 3

    The crown can be seen better :

    Boy, especially that one angled photo of the crown, side does seem like a radiomir crown

    And several of these new pics appear to show less space between the dial and case edge

    Since it's not a Roscosmos issued watch, I wouldn't be surprised to see it pop at auction in a near future with more detailed pictures :whistling: "Outer space flown watch"

    As a slight aside seeing the distance they had to climb down and to watch them work for 7 hours hanging above the earth is impressive. It must be exhausting.

    Since 26 November 2022, the ISS received the new Russian "Prichal" node onto the Nauka MLM - Multipurpose Laboratory Module adding 5 more ports to the space station...
    Interesting to see another brand of wrist watch being used since the Seiko Springdrive in December 2008...

    I’m going with this model. I’m not a Panerai guy, but it may be a Radiomir Base PAM 210. 644C42DF-C2A9-4556-B676-8472C5E32041.jpeg
