    Vintage Vostock

    On a whim I bought this vintage Vostock. The maroon dial and gold gilt fit my schools colors. It has a 2414 movement. I've heard a lot about the 2209 but not the 2414. I would like to hear comments about the 2214. I still have to order the Regimental NATO strap I located in maroon and yellow.

    Hi Mike,

    probably a late sample where stock parts were mixed, or parts swapped
    during repair. The 2409 has no date, the 2414 is the same with date.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft

    As mentioned, 2414 is the date version of 2409.
    There is probably 2409 in the case, but can be anything in it.
    Never buy a soviet watch without movement photo or opening case ;)
    For example I've a post-Soviet Vostok Kommandirskie equipped with Poljot 2609.

    A photo can be helpful to identify the movement.

    The seller had a photo of the movement but it was protected by Auctiva. The bridge layout matched the 2414.

    I received the watch a week ago, I'm impressed, it's a quite well made watch that keeps excellent time. Although my interests, in collecting go in a different direction, I just might have to get additional Russian watches

    That makes sense, since the plates of the 2214 and the 2209 have the same layout, not counting the dial side with the date of course
