Vostok Amphibia Neptune (960762)  (Cal 2426.02) at work today

There's something about it I didn't see in a Vostok Amfibia before lol - I own one, and I like it a lot, but this is classy, like an MG TD is classy!

Entirely un-watch related but your username doesn't cleanly divided Mach 1 in either km/h or mph.

What's the significance?! I have to know!!

Obligatory watch photo.

Nothing interesting, beyond the fact you can probably pull enough of my fingerprint off that dial to pass the biometrics into any of my new employer's facilities!

(does not have to be an awesome color)

According to an online Miles Per Hour to  Mach Speed  calculator that I found when I joined TWF mach 0.0013137 = 1MPH which was the speed most of my friends thought I moved  at. It probably goes back to when I was a hippy in the `70s  Man! 36501004_(68).gif.0f96a470302d3c246ecadeeb6d75fb13.gif

Was actually after the white dial one at first, but that was out of stock at the time, glad I picked the black dial now. I wasn't keen on the bracelet when I first got it, but it's kinda grown on me too, plus it's a bit harder to get a strap for it.
