I have loads of Vostoks some of which I`ve owned for many years, I haven`t had a duff one yet so my suggestion is just buy which ever one you fancy :thumbsup:

I think this review of a well known Vostok is very honest and worth a read before buying one.

I think the main complaints are the lume, crystal, bezel and bracelet so that pretty much the whole watch lol.

And for balance, here is why they are brilliant …

Vostok Europe are vastly inferior to proper Vostoks :)

Yes, buy a new one that you like, and ignore the detractors. Any scratches on the Crystal are easily polished out. There is nothing wrong with the bezel, and the bracelet is cheap and easy to replace. Have a look here,

It'll take you about a month to go through all the models.

Good luck. :thumbsup:

No bracelet on this one.

What about a Komandirskie to start?

The handsets on the SEs are much nicer.

Black bezel ones sell out more quickly.

If you can get one without a date it'll save you hours of faffing about and look better too.

IMHO

Good for you. I’ve had three different models so far although the radio room is my personal favourite. Easy to mod too.

Vostok is a nice watch when you receive a good discount. I had one, tje crystal is mineral and the lume was weak

 Movement and case were alright! 

The crystal is usually acrylic on Amphibias, and they're already pretty cheap. Agreed about the lume though, utter pants :laugh:

Just get an Amphibia, any Amphibia. But don't expect for a moment that you'll have just the one for long...

Yes and yes! The 'radio room' is pretty cool too.

Also, don't worry about the wobbly crown/stem it's how they come. Think I've had three and they've all been bomb proof!

Dead easy to modify them too - a bezel change literally takes 30 seconds and lots of options too

Now the long wait for delivery.
There is a vostok on amazon prime titled Amphibia but is actually a Komandirskie..
