Vostock Amphibian

As the grip of a burgeoning watch obsession kicks in I fancied a fix of Russian machismo so picked up this via the eBay lottery. Have I been a poor misguided pilgrim?

I know it is a bit careworn, but I like about of patina. My concern is that it is a Heinz variety and I am an old school schmuck.

It's certainly original although I had to laugh at the claim it's been serviced - it looks minging inside.

I did see that but thought for £32 ( including postage) it was worth a punt.

I plan to do some modification so a wee project.

Good luck! If you need any help let me know. I've just serviced a whole bunch of these:

Many thanks for the offer fella

I am looking to do mod on the bevel and like a nice dial with patina.

Once I see it in my hand I may well need some parts

Cheers
