    Great posts, jackrobinson!
    Good to see that Vlad has arrived safely and to suitable revelry. He wears his battle scars proudly I see
    Looking forward to exploring Israel though your eyes

    Happy to hear that he made it! That must have been quite a blow to dislodge the hands! Looking forward to your updates. Maybe you can get a picture of his visit to the watchmaker?

    Glad he made it in one piece, too bad about the hands and the box getting wrecked. Keep us posted!

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    I promise to take interesting photos, hopefully some at the WM.

    Regarding the hands unsync:
    Theory #1:I would have expected the watch fell on the floor during the security check but could not find any marks on the case, unless... possibly it was linoleum flooring or the sorts.
    Theory #2: Seeing the bottom sponge was missing and the watch was out of the bubble wrap since inspection and was routed via several branches before arriving at the final postal branch it may have been a coincidental combination of Vlad jumping from side to side in the box during transit and if to add to that (possibly) the hand pinion hole is a few microns too large after being removed and replaced several times (two services are documented here).

    One thing I can add is that in 13 hours of monitoring accuracy is great. I don't check to the second but minutes are good indicating that the movement is a-ok.

    Man, almost 30 hours after setting the old lad and the minutes hand is accurate (seconds deviation doesn't interest me, healed from the OCD ).
    No more pics till the hour/minute hands are synced.

    It's up to the owner Bloodtkr. What do you say Bloodtkr?
    If yes then you'll need to be a bit patient cause Vlad needs a fixing and then I gotta wear him and take some interesting pics. Where he is now? Read back a couple of posts and you'll see...

    Bloodtkr stopped posting here abouth a month ago and it's unsure if he'll be back soon. See https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/farewell-891951.html
    As for Vlad, I don't think he intended for asking his permission for each place the watch goes. The person at which Vlad currently resides decides where he goes next.
