    Cool Unusual Military Type Botock? your thoughts....?

    Cruising the bay I ran across this watch 330605012681 ( would create a link if I knew how). Its a military type Botock (komandirskie?) with what is for me an unusual and attractive form. normally I dont like these watches but this one is understated. Im not at all into the dial design, so I wont buy it. But Ive never seen anything like its shape style before and so I was curious..... For all I know its commonplace..but maybe not? Any info appreciated for the pure pleasure of knowing. Maybe some one else is interested..if so go for it... Thanks.

    Don't know about the watch, but the missile system is the SA-4 GANEF (NATO designation)...one thing I do have a little expertise in is former Soviet weaponry. Seele or schnurrp probably know a lot about the case design, etc. It is POST Soviet breakup. So made in early to mid 90's. It's a strange looking case design. AND the only thing 'military' about it is the picture of the SAM system.

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said "....I drank what?"

    "I have too many damn watches".....said no one on the WUS Russian Forum ever...

    Very elaborate bezel indeed, that would require IMHO a non-military dial!

    Looks a lot like this one (sold by Ukrainian seller "Rosso20" about eight years ago, not more active).

    Same "asymmetrical" design, except bezel, dial and coating of course

    There are similar new styles of casings for Vostok, some possibly made by Belarus based Vympel:
