    Here are two other examples found by Mchap, a forum member.

    I guess that they are related somehow with Ukraine, where the Dnepr river is located.
    We were undecided about the DB logo, now it clear that it's Dnepr-Boctok.

    The only Ukrainian watch factory that i know is Kleinod, that assembled also several Poljot models in the past. Other informations on those papers?

    They could be very useful

    Dniepr-Vostok! Huray!
    A little long life mistery is near the solution!
    Russian watches were designed to be maintained in the field by an agricultural worker using nothing but a hammer, a sickle, and some tractor grease... (phd)

    So it is obvious that Vostok-Europe is not Vostok's first venture with other firms. Of course, most of us are familiar with Cardi who used Vostok and ZIM-built Pobeda movements to make Cardi-Vostok and Cardi-Victory respectively. I think Vostok Troika has a Belarussian connection, which I have never been able to figure out, and now Dnieper Vostok... another page to the Chistopol permulations. Can't wait to learn more.

    I found this in the web:

    There is a legend that in 882 a boat of Prince Oleg, a successor of Novgorod prince Rurik, came to Dnieper coast. “The story of time years” tells us that variags Askold and Dir were Rurik combatants (under other version – the boyars), and had no lawful powers for Kiev board. Prince Oleg enticed them to Dnieper coast, killed with the help of his soldiers and took Kiev throne. Other annals specify, that Askold was the descendant of Kiev founder prince Kij. Some annals also say, that Dir was Askold predecessor and died long before Askold coming to Kiev.
    Very romantic legend tells us about foundation of man monastery nearby Askold’s grave. In 1113 Grand duke Mstislav Vladimirovich, Vladimir Monomah's son, came back home after hunting. It was late, and he got off the way in dark wood (so Pechersk looked liked). Suddenly, prince saw a bright light in a thicket which flew from St. Nikolas image, seeing on a high stub near the road. In memory of this wonderful event, in 1115 Mstislav founded St. Nikolas church man monastery. According to the governor’s decree the female monastery was transformed into man.

    According to your papers the watches are produced by the watch factory called "Vostok" situated in the town of Chistopol, republic of Tatarstan, Russia.
