    Boctok watch

    Hi,

    Through endless eBay trawling looking for a unique vintage watch (preferably hand wound) I managed to stumble across this beautiful watch.

    The item listing was very vague and smelt of someone not knowing what they were selling but nevertheless I putin a cheeky bid of 22.50

    Here is the original listing and pics from the listing:

    This watch was a gift in the 90's, worn couple of times, been in adrawer until a recent move. Wound it up and seems to be working fine, not sureof its accuracy.



    No idea what it's background is, some paperwork and originalpackaging included in the sale, everything is written in Russian.



    I've Googled it and there seem to be a few versions of this watchand mostly in pretty poor shape, this is in great condition.

    The watch is in perfect condition and has its original strap which too is in perfect condition, I will probably change the strap to keep it safe and also because it has a little bit to a shoe polish smell to it.

    Through some research I could only find 1 thread about the watch on WUS forums

    Does anyone know anything about this watch in terms of its history and design?

    I like how it even has 'CCCP' on the leather fastener!

    Yes it looks great and all of it feels genuine, so far it keeps time well and there's something about the ticking sound of mechanical watches I can't get over, when no one is looking it goes against my ear! Going to purchase a different strap to keep this one safe.

    The glass is perfect and the dial is perfect too, super happy with my purchase

    Very interesting find!

    The box and papers look like they were made in the late 80s/early 90s when Vostok (thats how you pronounce it) had a cooperation with TimeTrend, an Italian Company.
    TimeTrend requested some "better" boxes for the italian market than the standard boxes in which these watches were sold in the CCCP.
    Russian watches were very popular in Italia at that time.

    I've never seen that watch before, but /f10, our Russian watch subforum can surely help.

    Can you provide a better picture of the piece of paper with >>Boctok<< on it?
    Have fun with it.

    That's a unique choice. The price was certainly right. Enjoy your Vostok!

    Vostoks are underrated gems, very functional movements.

    I have a Vostok Amphibia that I got direct from St. Petersburg with the diver on the dial and a quasi-Pepsi bezel. And yes, the stem moves all over the place.
