    IMHO, green dials are very 'marmite' - you either like it or you don't. The same applies for the Rolex 'Hulk', some people love them and some really don't.

    Whereas the blue, white and grey are more traditional colours and have probably sold quicker as a result. So nothing wrong with it at all, just a personal taste thing and if you like it you should go for it, they're stunning watches.

    If I didn't already own a Watchuseek Airavata Green, I'd probably be tempted.

    For any comparable dial colour in a homage to '60s thin dress style, I'd definitely choose the Classica over a Henry London or Orient Bambino.

    I sold my grey coloured Orient Bambino and acquired the Vostok. It’s better in every way.

    Very very surprised with the accuracy. Excellent.
    By far the loudest ticker though.

    I've been wanting to ask:

    Why isn't anyone considering the green dial? I see it available on meranom.

    Is there a reason why you guys avoid it? It's bright, yes, but is there any other reason not to pick it up? I've seen that it's actually green only if kept in the sun, otherwise it's a very dark, understated green.

    Aaaaaand green is sold out as well.

    Guess I'll have to wait now. Stunning pictures arktika! I really feel that green.

    As for its "competition" I really don't feel like selling my Bambino though. But I reckon the green Vostok needs to be added to the rotation.

    It is so funny, Vostok's dimensions today is what main stream brands were using before the over sized watch trend. No mainstream manufacturer such as Logines, Tissot, even Rolex are using dimensions such as the one listed above today. They have gone bigger. This is one thing I really like about vostok and hope they keep it this way
