    It appears that Vostok is not becoming Raket, but Vostok Europe.
    My 2c on this watch, it is really huge IMO and why? My Squale is 14mm thick 44mm and 51 lug to lug and that is a 1,000m diving watch, it is 14mm thick as it needs to take massive pressures Squale 101 Atmos Ref 2002A Review - worn&wound
    17mm is another 3mm more, why?
    I dont want to put down anyone's purchase, actually it is a nice looking watch, but it is really very big, and the lugs stick out a long way too. My Squale is a big watch to wear, but the rounded tight lugs help it blend into the wrist.

    My K39 arrived today. Very pleased with it, not too big for me nor too heavy, have fitted a Dassari distressed canvas NATO very comfortable.
    I tried a Zulu 1.5mm thick strap which I found too thick, I have a Perlon on order am pretty sure that will work a treat.

    Nice dial, but way way too thick not necessary, it is huge. My Squale gets the least wrist time for this reason, maybe I am getting old, but I dont want a weight swinging off my arm And thick gets bashed too. Just too big for no reason IMO, why so thick?

    Chris I think the whole reason Vostok have made this model is to specifically target those buyers who want/need a wristwatch of substantial heft and size to match perhaps the size of the wearer or for a personal preference.

    Personally I thinks it's a great looking timepiece and wouldn't mind one myself. I'm lucky that although I only have a wrist slightly larger than 7", my wrist is quite wide and flat so I think I could pull it off.

    My 2 cents worth

    Mariomart has a good point. I've seen a certain niche of collectors complain that anything under 47mm is too small. It's probably a smart move for Vostok to have a nice range of available sizes. That being said, I am lamenting the size personally because I could never wear it due to small wrists.

    For me it's not big or heavy, I have 8 inch wrist am 18 stone and 6ft 3 inches tall, I love my Neptune but it feels and looks too small. I have no real experience of many watches but it seems the display back adds a good few mm.

    The Dassari canvas is very soft and the watch sort of squashes into it and my wrist reducing how tall the watch stands.

    Perhaps I could develop and market a prosthetic wrist enlarger for those lacking in that department lol

    Lovely watch, but again, such a bummer on the size. 43mm is where I draw the line unless is has a short lug to lug. Enjoy everyone! They do look great!!!
