Yes, that looks like an Amphibia to me too.  I'm reasonably sure that watch is featured as No. 212 in Juri Levenberg's "Russian Wristwatches" book:

"Caliber 2409, 17 jewels, manual winding, angular "Amphibia" case, rotating bezel, antimagnetic, very rare."

Don't get too excited about the "very rare" quote though.  With so many variations lots of Vostoks are very rare but very few are particularly valuable.

Here's an old picture of my favourite Amphibia that I don't think I've shared with you folks before:

No watch collection is ever complete without a few Vostoks, be they Amphibias, Komadirskies, Generalskies... :)

Just in this morning Vostok Amphibia 090 with modified bezel.

Keeping the bracelet on for now, although it feels it wants to bite me every time I go to use the clasp!

Wanted an easy to read diver (getting old don't you know), and I'm due a blue dialled Orient diver in 4 weeks for my birthday, so chose this model.

Here are some pics:

I have three Vostoks, Two Amphibians and a Retro. Although I need to get the strap on the Neptune changed, just doesn't sit right on the wrist, which seems to be caused by bad design where the bracelet connects to the case.
