    Help with Vostok case identification

    Could someone help me i.d. this watch? The paper that came with said it was made in March, 1993. It's not automatic, it's a manual wind.

    That first number printed on the bottom left, 341307, represents the model number. The 34 is the case style, 1 is the case material (chromed brass), and 307 is the dial design.

    The 4th cell in the document is the date of production: 190393, or March 19, 1993.

    Thank you, that's what I was looking for. Do you know what the water rating might be? I think it was advertised as 200m, but I don't think that's right.

    The documents are not the original ones of the watch. The right model number of your watch is 341289. The model number shown on the documents is instead 341307 which corresponds to this other model with a 'paratrooper' dial

    I don't think it was ever really stated for Komandirskie models, but likely around 20-50m. Don't trust old seals to be very good anymore unless you replace them. Amphibians are the 200m models made of steel and from that era are frequently automatic. Amphibians share this dial design despite that fact that it says "Komandirskie" on it.

    This is also correct, good catch.

    Good catch. I have the paratrooper model also. But I didn't know which one went with it. Now I do. Thanks!
