    Re: Vostok classification database draft

    Thanks for the information. I bought another one. A 2209 movement with original parts. I am waiting for a strap now. Unfortunatelly I have another question: While winding it, I think I overwind my amphibia unintentionally. I thought that 30 winds would be enough. But after 20-25 winds I heard a click noise (Yes I know. It's a bad omen). And I found out that after doing this, the only way to get the watch from time-set position to handwind position is screwing the crown back in. It doesn't click into winding position from time-set position. Only way to to this is screwing the crown and hearing the proper click voice in the process. I will show it to my watchmaker but I still want to know if it is normal or not. I will post some photos with the straps when it comes (and without any mechanical problems luckily)

    While digging through a catalog trying to find a case type for my recent octagonal Amphibia, I found this entry. It details a 250 case Amphibia. I hadn't run across that case type in the thread so far.




    I still haven't found the case type for my transition period octagonal Amphibia though (the octagonal with slight curve in the lugs as seen in the last photo in post #29).

    Mystery Amphibian case that is vaguely octagonal produced in the early 90's has been solved. It is case type 270 according to this passport. Update as necessary.

I don't know if this thread is right place to ask this question and I am sorry for this mistake if it is not. I will be glad if you help me identify this watch. The watch I am talking about has these spesifics:

    There is ''Wostok'' ''18 jewels'' and ''Made in USSR'' markings on the dial (Most probably and export). The dial is green sunburst (which is a very different dial design apart from the other amphibias that I found in internet). There are some cyrillic script on the caseback with the numbers ''217492'' (This one bothers me. Because casebacks of english dial export amphibias have english written on them as I know. But this one has english dial with russian caseback. Is this normal?) The seller says that the movement is a 2209 but there is no picture of the movement itself. Also the case is highly polishd instead of matt finish. I have great concerns about this watch's authenticity but I liked the green sunburst dial. It gives a different look to this classic so called ''vintage'' watch. If you confirm the authenticity I will try to buy it.

    That is a redial with a polished case. Nicely done, but not an original vintage Amphibia. Would I buy it? Of course! If I recall, there's another with paddle hands on eBay as well.

    Re: Vostok classification database draft

    Hi, can anyone give me any information on Amphibia casebacks?

    I have two vintage Amphibias, one has the standard caseback with 'Ambhibia' engraved horozontaly, and the other has the dolphin. My question is, on which model was the dolphin caseback originaly used, because i believe it is a replacement on the watch, which is a standard Amphibia round case with a dial 'commemorating' the occupation of Afghanistan.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks :)

    Mikatile.
