    I duno, kind of a shame the lume is not fixed, the burned dial is what made Vlad IMO.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    I intend keeping hold of Vlad until the end of April just to make sure he keeps performing well and to show him a little of my part of the UK, after that i'm happy to send him on to any other member but in UK please.

    To answer Chris's question, the lume on the hour hand was missing from day one, it was discussed and consensus was to leave alone and not replace. I have removed what was left of the lume on the minute hand so as it does not cause further damage to the dial or movement.

    Cheers

    Lastly in Homage to his last port of call Australia, the Old Sally Port. From here many convicts set sail for down under!
    The Monument has a twin in Sydney, perhaps someone could take a picture of there Russian watch next to it.

    Great work on Vlad Matt. HMS Victory looks great and well worth a visit.

    If the ol boy ever was to want a nice German brew, I'd love to take him out for a couple here in Munich.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Vlad has now left my care and moved on to his next host, my time with him was short most of it spent in pieces! I hope I have given him a new lease of life and he will continue his round the world trip, lets keep him moving and looked after, more adventures with his new host soon i'm sure.

    All The Best...

    Vlad is currently in my care and nestled safely with my collection. I hope to get him out and about soon , I've been busy since his arrival . He looks in fine shape after his visit to to Dr Matt.
