From Russia with love, well Scotland really. I think a lot of the Vostoks are a bit tacky like something you would win at the fair. I thought this one almost looked classy. Sandwich dial which I dont have on any other watch and on a Cousins leather NATO. All in this was under £100 so for the type of watch, the look and cost I see it as one of my best value purchases. 

cheers

That's not my breakfast.. I'm "fixing" this one and if it's a nice day I'll wear it tomorrow.

I've never looked long at a Vostock for the reason you describe (personal taste's and all that, I know people love them, but they are not for me).

That however, is a very smart looking watch, particularly love the tone/hue of the dial, almost looks enamel in the picture. :thumbs_up:

Appreciate your comments. If you look on Meranom there are hundreds but there are a few like the one I have above. They also do that one with arabics at the 3 6 9 12 and it was going to be my ode to a Panerai but its always out of stock. There are also a couple of 1940's type designs, I think one is called K-43. Im fancying one of them some time. I just took a punt on my blue one. I know its just a Vostok but I do look at it and think it looks really quite something design wise and at the price even better. The problem is it hasnt helped my constant fear to spend much more than £500 on a watch.

The hand had fell off and I wasn't sure how it opened so I figured if I boiled it to soften the glue, it would open easier. It did. It opened from the front which was handy. Now I just need the right kind of glue to put it back together.
