    I agree completely.

    Looks too much like the Timex Marlin. The price is quite high I think

    It doesn't look like the Marlin at all, different size, different dial (the Marlin has a sunburst finish), different hands, the Vostok has a display back case...the Marlin looks better IMO because it's 34 mm and BTW now they rose its price, so the Vostok is relatively cheap.

    Perhaps they should work out on the design and advertise it a little more, this Classica has potential IMO.

    Has a nice vintage Poljot vibe to it. I like it!

    I really love this reissue of vintage vostok dress watches.
    Because I have almost all members of the collection of the vintage series.

    I decided to get white or blue dial when I've saw meranom's post but they were already sold out...
    I hope Vostok makes a sun-burst white in steel case.
    So it can be my daily watch!

    The 39mm isn't the problem, as much as the 11mm thickness on a hand-winder? It seems a bit bulky for a timepiece without an auto-winding module.

    Timex Marlin, Vostok Classica, Orient Bambino. All within the same price zone but quite a contrast. At one end buyers are being ripped off, the other end they are getting value for money - the Classica falls within the spectrum but I think towards value for money and authenticity.

    Re: Vostok Classica

    I stopped wearing my classic Swatch watches (34mm) and my LL Bean Hamilton (36mm) because I consider them simply too small for a man's watch in the modern world. I don't really care what sizes were popular during the 50's and 60's...that was then, this is now.

    For that reason, I MUCH prefer the Vostok over the Timex reissue. I own other Timex watches, and they are well made and have given good service. However, these are 37.5 mm and larger, I would not consider anything smaller.

    Yes it's not the thinnest guy in town, but still acceptable.

    If you want a Soviet thin you need to get a Poljot deluxe, 7 mm including the crystal. Ridicously thin...but of course it didn't use the Vostok 2409 that is rugged military movement developed for the Komandirskie second generation.
