    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Well, I guess we have 2.5 interests in common: watches, fountain pens, and I play (and fix) the organ.

    It's funny, since I got into watches due to a post on the Fountain Pen Network.

    That reminds me, I need to get a picture of Vlad with one of my fountain pens, which I can also post on the pen & watch combo thread.

    One more Vlad photo before I pack him up and send him to GuessWho! Here's Vlad with my 1960-ish Pelikan 140 fountain pen. The page in the background is where I've been keeping track of my watches' rates until I get the timing nailed down (Vlad has his own page because he arrived after I started, and he's not staying).

    I'll be putting Vlad back on his grey NATO before sending him off.

    Vlad back on his grey NATO, with his new reusable shipping container:

    He may as well travel in comfort. I also put a neatly typed permanent customs label on the back for his cross border adventures, although he won't need it for his upcoming trip.

    That re-usable box looks great! I will make sure to keep it (and Vlad) in good condition when it arrives!

    I tried to make it as reusable as possible. Just cut the tape carefully along the three sides of the box top, and it should just pop open. The box is mostly pre-coated in tape, so all the labels should just peel off (except the permanent customs label, which is under the tape).

    Vlad has arrived! But i am at a client site in Toronto so I will have to wait before I can do a proper update.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Wow, that was fast!

    If you can, check him against an accurate time source (such as an Internet-time-synchronized PC) and let me know how much fast or slow he is. He's been underway for short enough of a time that he should still be ticking.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Just got home now, long day of driving around. Vlad was about 25 seconds slow when I first opened up the package, probably because he hadn't been wound in a while.

    Pics to come soon!

    Vlad only took one day to arrive, and came in the new re-usable box by svorkoetter, it even had instructions on it!

    Vlad even came with the time set and running, albeit a few seconds behind (was in the mail/on my desk for about 34 hours, probably just needed a good wind)

    Took some quick pictures out on my balcony, I am pretty tired and I will try and get some better pictures tomorrow morning

    It is humid as heck today, it really has zapped all of my energy (I am a person who MUCH prefers the cold), no A/C so I am making due
