    Proposals for 'other' Russian project watch

    Hello,

    Anyone interested in making russian manufactured project watch. I don't have any idea specifically right now, but it think we could discuss it here?

    I find many watches boring and our projects are always fun.

    So, any ideas maybe?

    I am thinking of Amphibia or other Vostok based project since this is a path we already familiar with.

    I would go dress, vintage, modern, classic.

    Most of all I would like some kind of tool watch with bracelet like the Kompresor reissue.

    Price target I am having in mind is sub 200€ with or without strap/bracelet but would pay more for the right thing.

    Do we have any legendary Vostoks we could use as a base/reissue?

    I would love to participate but I would like to make something that a) existed before and b) absolutely impossible to buy original. This is why I liked the Sadko project cause getting a real one is impossible. Anything like this and I am in! What do you think?

    Uros, perhaps you missed some of the recent discussion on this matter, which led to the present Elektronika project?

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/wa...n-4876471.html
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/wu...l-4908847.html

    The result was a near stalemate on the Vostok-based proposals, with none of our members showing any interest in pursuing the feasibility of such proposals. The Luch-based proposal is being investigated because somebody was willing to take that action.

    There was also this idea for an order of special dials:
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/ho...l-4740829.html
    Once again, there was much discussion but no agreement, and no commitment to action.

    Perhaps the best chance of making something happen is if you first present the forum with a well-defined concept and commit to connecting with a supplier and leading the project to completion, and then see if enough members are interested for Watchuseek to grant approval.

    If we’re discussing a future project already I would like to propose a Slava World time homage. Not easy to find on the used market and certainly not cheap if you do. I reckon if Luch can make a case for it they could produce this watch with the 1801 movement.

    @Odessa200, that is quite the thing I have in mind
    @Chascomm, sorry, changed the job recently so I didn't had much time to read the forum. I will look it up. Thanks for the heads up. That makes sense, I will try to come up with some proposals but I am not good with making sketches.
    @Hseldon, that is awesome idea. I don't think it would me much hard to make it, nor too expensive. How can we see our options for this one, maybe contact Luch directly?

    My concern would be that the unique case which is obviously not currently in production, plus using two movements in every watch could make this a bit pricey, but the only way to get an idea would be to contact Luch directly. No idea who to contact there though.
