    It's been fun building this collection over the last few years and I'm surprised how many interesting watches there still is to find from the factories from the old Soviet Union. It's even more fun to wear them knowing that there can't be so many that wears the same watch.

    I think you mean this one:

    I'm glad you asked. It's my favorite Russian watch. Never seen a watch that looks like that before. Very unique. It's a military edition from Vostok. Some call the watch NVCh-30 and many others simply call it Vostok Amphibian 30 ATM.

    The watch was developed for the Russian divers in the late 60's or early 70's. It's got a thicker and special shaped crystal than the civilian edition. It's also got a thicker back compared to the civilian edition. Always a black dial. An 100% original watch should have paddle hands, I think. The watch on the photo above has - for some reason - arrow hands. I can't figure out why. The closest guess is that it has been serviced and arrow hands replaced the original paddle hands. I don't know really.

    It's a nice watch to wear:

    It's got two younger brothers; The tonneau and the Albatros.

    This is the tonneau or "barrel":

    Thanks bultacolobito. I tried to keep a straight line of naval watches in the collection but the Raketa I couldn't resist. It's beautiful.

    Vostok Amphibian type 350 cyrillic logo

    I think this is an old watch. It was the kyrillic logo that caught my interest. The hands were beyond rescue but the dial is a beauty. I put the paddle hands on it and changed the bezel. I know it should have the necktie hands but paddle hands is more Vostok, if you ask me. Easy to replace with necktie hands, if I can find any.
    Strange that it's still pretty easy to find these watches for sale at very low prices.

    Nice catch Watchdog! There are still nice watches out there waiting to be found. Yours looks like it's hardly been used. Very nice condition and with the cyrillic logo. This is perhaps one of the best looking watches that Vostok has made, this far.

    Why not show the rest of your Russian collection Watchdog? I know you've got some really nice pieces and developing projects.
