Bought a Vostok

A Komenderskie. 

More out of curiosity than anything else as it was only £40 new. 

It's actually quite impressive. 

Mines staying within 5 seconds a day which is good by any standards. 

Hmmmm 

I think I'll have to get another 

It didn't happen without pictures!

Yes photos please :thumbsup:

Watch out, they can be moreish!

I have found all mine to keep time within -5 to +20 seconds a day from new, and once regulated they can do a lot better. The Amphibias are even better value, and they do versions without a date, as the lack of quickset is the biggest flaw with Vostoks in my opinion.

I cannot figure out how to post photos but this link shows the one I bought. 

It definitely has a quirky charm about it and at £42 it was a no brainer purchase. 

The only difference with mine is I binned the original strap for a navy blue and red nato which has elevated it to a different level.

Funnily enough I've got two Vostoks on the way. One is the Amphibia with the Scuba dude the other is a not divers which I just fancied, I made an offer of £38 which seems mad for an automatic seemingly well put together watch. They're definitely quirky and the styles don't really conform to any others that I've seen! Enjoy. :)
