    That's funny. I was torn between the red/blue bezel and the black bezel when I did the pre-order! I still sometimes wonder...

    In real life, the blue is a very deep royal navy blue and does almost look black. Somehow, it just looks really classy to me, IMHO!

    Here lies the body of Mary McGee,

    Died at the age of a hundred and three,
    For fifteen years, she kept her virginity…...Not a bad record for this vicinity.

    Wow. Never seen anything like that dial... Why the zodiac on the bezel, and what does that writing indicate on the next row in?

    This is indeed very remarkable promotion Raketa. It took me a lot of time to find out, that the watch was made for association of macrobiotic shops and restaurants in Italy called UPM (Un Punto Macrobiotico).

    Thanks for clearing that up! I have had tons of questions regarding the logo. I did a search myself and found the same, but forgot the details.

    I found this piece in a Russian gift shop in Berlin. The owner had four boxes of Vostoks he acquired from an estate sale. The original owner was a Vostok collector. Being kind of a Vostok collector myself, grabbed a few and this one caught my eye.

    I did some searching regarding Raketa brand watches as well. Pretty decent hand wind movement. Mine keeps pretty good time and turns a lot of heads. I guess I should spin it around so the logo is upright, but I like the winding crown facing out….I guess it doesn't matter :) Thank you for the interest!
