I recently took delievery of my BRAND new vostok komandirskie watch!
Inside theres a manual (in russian) which has a couple of numbers which i can only assume mean the manufacturing date:
there are three different columns in a table and the numbers are seperated into three columns as such:
811296-22 | 17 | 17.05.12
I can only assume 17.05.12 is the manufacturing date but I dont know what the other two are!
I must say I am quite impressed with the watch! It looks like quite a cool time piece.
I know it only costs $50 shipped but I wanna know how durable this thing is! I have seen the tortue test and the making of the komandirskie as well.
The only thing I really need to know is how waterproof it is or how far owners have taken the limits of their komandirskie?
Recently my 200m Hamilton GMT Navy fogged up while washing my hands -.-
Something i know probably wont happen to this one, has anyone taken their komandirskie swimming or anything of the sort?
Can i realy realy really thrash it around?
I am intending to anyway to get rid of some of the shine from the chrome :x (dont like it too shiny)
