    Very upsetting.

    As a confirmed Vostok nut I am even tempted to invoke the terrible wrath of Mrs.Serge by buying another if they restock just to keep on a NATO.
    Yes,madness indeed.
    I guess I am lucky... Mrs Seikogi actually likes Vostoks so I have a 120 on the way for her! This gives me a "free pass" on further suspicious packages that arrive at home from the east haha :D

    Try to find a model for Mrs Serge that she likes, this could work out! Since the prices on russian watches are in the "socially acceptable range for non watch enthusiasts" its easier to gain their understanding and interest.

    Unfortunately, my Vostok 710B32 has stopped working :(

    After I wind it, it stops after a couple of hours. Sometimes the second hand won't move at all after a wind, so I have to tap the case with my fingers to get it going. Also, when i unscrew the crown to wind it, sometimes the winding mechanism doesn't engage and it's the hands that move even though I haven't pulled out the crown to the next notch.

    I went to the Returns page in Meranom to log my problem. But I haven't heard back from them. Not sure what to do next. Any advice? I really love this 710B32 SE and want it to work as I feel the design is a real keeper. Grrrrr.

    Looks like there are at least 2 problems. Keyless me mechanism is not working was expected (probably needs oiling so gears will move as expected and engage winding or hands moment). Stopping is a different matter. Tye fact that the watch does not start after winding and needs a bit of tapping/shaking also suggests that the watch may needs a service (cleaning and oiling). How old is the watch?
