    Thank you for your kind words,(I used Truespace 3.2 ,a rather old but capable software program from Caligari for both the 3d models and animation ) you are more than welcome to share the animations my friend!

    I must remember to save this for the next time somebody on the Affordables forum declares Vostok to be 'rubbish' on the basis of the 'broken' crown on the watch that they keep sending back for repair or replacement.

    Yep, the first time you unscrew the crown on a vostok the feel of the crown is rather alarming.but when you understand the mechanics of the assembly,It makes perfect sense.A rather elegant soloution from a manufacturing point of view!

    Just for ones still wondering why this design is good, when screwed in to the case the crown is then not rigidly connected to the stem.

    Therefore any impact on the crown is not transferred along the stem in to the mechanism.

    It's a shock protection system.
