    Re: Everything to expect from Vostok factory soon

    zenitar has 1 170862 listed right now. 2 have been sold in the last 24 hours, so I don't expect it to last long. I ordered one from another seller (at a much higher price). I wish he had this listing up at the time. At any rate I don't expect this to last long and they seem to be very hard to find right now. If you have any desire to get one I suggest you jump on it.

    If anyone has one of these it would be nice to hear about it. Although some have described this as a GMT, it doesn't appear to be a true GMT as the 24H hand is always synchronized with the 12H hand. The GMT functionality comes from the bezel. I could be wrong as I've never had a watch with one of these movements in my hands.

    Thanks for the heads up. It's a bit expensive vs. "regular" price, but there appears to be none available anywhere at the regular price.

    The movement is the same as this one, which has a generally more desirable case but looks cheaper. The novelty effect...

    I'm not sure what the "regular" price is if you can source these from inside Russia although I'm sure it's considerably less. I have a couple of friends who live there and another who commutes regularly to Moscow and has an apartment there, so if the discount is significant I could always get them to act as my proxy.

    When Meranom had these in stock they were $103USD so Zenitar's price is pretty close. Personally I love a GMT as the feature is genuinely very useful to me. I've seen the 96 cases with that movement and I was almost ready to jump on one when my search for the 170862 or 863 proved frustrating.

    I'm usually not a big fan of gold colored watches, however I keep looking at this picture and thinking how nice it looks. What do some of you comrades think about it?

    I agree , but what strap color would work with the watch? Maybe black?

    Do all the original ones have stainless cases? Why did they make the new one gold? The gold does look nice but it would also look good with stainless.
