Looks too much like the Timex Marlin. The price is quite high I think
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!
-Are we having fun yet?
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!
my russian watch collection:
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.

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.
My Amphibia are also a size I like:
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.
