    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Actually - a LOT of people coming through the shop have been told the story of Vlad the travelling Vostok, and it is raised a lot of interest in Russian watches / vintage watches in general. Most people find it pretty amazing that such a thing as could possibly happen on an internet forum between complete strangers all over the world ... but there you go ... that's the watch lover community for you !

    Thanks for this update, it's about time Vlad got into some action
    I remember going cycling in the Canberra and Sydney area and getting alot of "honks and dirty words" thrown at me. Is it the same in that area?

    Vlad has arrived in sunny Perth, Western Australia

    Over the coming weeks I'll show Vlad the local sights. His first real outing will be this coming Sunday where he will be helping me cook several hundred sausages for a community event.

    Vlad arrived safe and sound after his crossing of Australia from East to West.

    After a stretch and a yawn (and a wind up) Vlad takes in his surroundings.

    I could imagine Vlad would be a little confused, so I introduced him to Ivan. He seems to be getting along with Ivan quite well

    Stay tuned for further updates from the region South of the Swan River in Perth.

    Cheers Mario

    I live in Rochester, NY, but in the next few months I'll be traveling for business to Japan and the UAE. I would love the chance to bring Vlad with me, if the timing works out. New to this forum, so not sure what the procedure is here, but just putting it out there...

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    I can confirm Vlad is with me here in beautiful Perth, Western Australia. He arrived beautifully packaged and has been with me through Christmas and out and about. Here's a few pics so far, plenty to follow in the coming week or two. Also anyone over the east coast of Australia want him next? I will be heading over east next week for a few weeks and can send him on. Cheers
