    nice dial actually. They should sell them separately.
    Why 2004-2006?

    No, you're right the dial is a replica. I meant to say that it's of nice quality and they should sell them separately.
    Noticeable differences are in subdials.

    Hi!

    I can't say if this watch is the real thing but there is a real Vostok (Восток) watch with a Восток (Vostok) rocket on it. A Восток (Vostok) rocket is the type of rocket which was used when Yuri Gagarin (Юрий Гагарин) traveled into space.

    Its look doesn't match exactly the look of the watch in a book I was given this Christmas about Russian wristwatches (written by Juri Levenberg) or the look of another similar watch I found using Google (but that one was clearly an Amfibia (Амфибия)) though but I don't think this automatically make it a fake.

    This watch has the mention "Сделано в СССР" which means "Made in USSR" and according to the book I mentioned above these watches were last produced when the USSR still existed....

    Have a nice day!

    Nick

    Where, pray tell, did you find this watch?
    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said "....I drank what?"

    Hi Tactical,...
    I found it earlier today,... apologies for not posting the link.
    It appears someone has snapped it up.
    Here's the eBay listing link: LINK
    I found numerous discrepancies when comparing this one to the two I currently have and any others found in sites like Michele's which was the closest I could find... here's what I noted:
    -Strange looking bezel,... red and black are reversed
    -No triangle on bezel
    -Some of the holes on the bezel look "off",.. as if the drill slipped
    -Odd looking second hand
    -no metal frame around the date window
    -strange looking crown
    -coloration of the dial is very "cyan" and different than any other I've seen
    -& all the typography looks either slightly blurred or bolder than Michele's example

    Anyway,... there were enough question ,marks for me that I passed on it. I'd love to have a third variant as I love this dial design, but this one was just too suspect. Did I pass up something original and rare?

    Mysterian,

    I have seen bezels like that one, but the most alarming point is the one-piece "little bird" caseback.
