    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Definitely a great idea!! I'm in, whoever ends up having it before me, PM for address. I'm in San Diego, California. I can get some beach shots with it. Maybe even a shot with a Russian Foxtrot-class diesel submarine. We have one on display here as a museum.

    Is it water tight still? I could get some underwater shots in the Pacific...

    I was told the watch is NOS but never tested for water tightness, so lets assume it is not.

    A reminder about the TV, travelling Vostok. There are no hard and fast rules on who gets it next. The current holder decides. This could be a PM or a 200 word essay on why you get it next. I have PM's with addresses of who wants it next. It's out of my hands now. Stay around for updates.

    Good to know, if it ends up here, I'll keep it dry.

    Until recently it was home to the world's largest brickworks. Now closed, 4 chimneys and some kilns remain

    OhDark30 I see Fred Dibnah never got down your way then!

    I just looked out the window, I think it's raining here now. Just bought the wife some grippies for her shoes as well. Will be watching for the postie.

    absolutely amazing museum, on par with the usual very high standards of UK's military museum, and on top the Amfibia inside his own element. Bieber, x-type, SLC chariot, a Holland... Really complete, a Caproni and all historical famous western mini-subs would have been present, I think .

    The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Yes, duna, it was fab
    Really recommend the museum

    They had loads more stuff but my phone battery conked - a rescue sub, early ROV, bits from HMS Conqueror (including that periscope), torpedoes, a Polaris missile


    Armoured diving suit - need a NATO on there!

    My only regret is that HMS Alliance is being restored until early March - my guide today served on her, and it would have been great to get the tour around

    Actually there did used to be a few more chimneys here! I remember 8 chimneys and all the dust in the house being red brick dust.
    The poor air quality was why they had to close the works. History here

    Yes, still icy snow on the ground here, more falling. Will PM you when I've posted the watch on
