    How "Special" are Vostok Special Editions

    I bought an Vostok SE not too long ago and was wondering if anyone actually knows what the quantity of the special edition runs are. I realize these are "special editions" and not "limited editions", but was wondering what constitutes an edition when it comes to the number of released watches

    It seems that they make a run, see how quickly that run sells out, and use that to determine if they should make another run or sell off remaining stock.

    I've looked several times but never deeply... Do they have signed crowns, more elaborate caseback, cutout rotors? I've been only looking at "submarine" dialed models and the vintage styles with see through casebacks...

    Speaking only for the 710557 that I bought.

    The crown is signed and I believe it's all stainless steel instead of capped brass.

    The caseback is a special edition caseback, that includes the Russian for special edition (naturally) on it. See reviews for translation to English.

    I don't recall if my rotor was anything special or not. Considering it's behind a solid caseback, I'm not too bothered one way or the other.

    I bought it for the full lume dial and the nicer bezel with the lume pip.

    I know that the Neptune SEs were numbered, but I am not sure if it was ever determined if the number was for the whole production run, or each dial variant.

    I asked Dmitry about this and his response was that it was for the entire production run of all dials. I picked up the Silver/White edition at the time and was told by Dmitry that they only made 100 of these, whereas the bolder colors had 200 each.
