    Picture VDV Amfibia

    My favourite everyday watch - it has taken some very hard use over the years in the bush, in the sea and in the office. You can see the wear on the bezel chrome, most likely due to sea water corrosion and physical wear. The blue dial is shows cracking.

    Made in 2000, Vostok Amfibia with Komandirskie VDV dial. Unlike recent dials, it does not have the Cyrillic "Made in Russia" at the 6 o'clock, and the numerals are printed and not raised.

    It has a Guards Division (British Guards not Гвардия !!) NATO strap.

    Thanks! I notice a similar red/blue strap on ebay recently. This isn't one of them. I picked this one up in London.
