    A year ago, I bought a Retro Vostok watch (model: Retro 540001) from Meranom. Some rain drops got on the watch, and afterwards I noticed there were a lot of droplets on the inside of the crystal. (The watch documentation states that it's resistant to rain and water splashes from hand washing.)...

    Hi, On an online auction site in my homecountry I found this Vostok Komandirskie possibly from the 60s: Since I'm only familiar with the ones with tachymeters, can someone help me identify it and determine if it's maybe a case of a "case transplant"? or just outright fake?

    Hello guys, I just recently got to know the existence and history of russian made watches, mainly vostok. Naturally I got excited, went on ebay and bought this one. I pulled the trigger on it coz i think the ship wheel dial is kind of an interesting take. I'm told it's a 270 case (according to...
  6. 24 Hour watches
    Received this watch as a birthday gift and I am liking it (2+ months now). Just did a review on it on my Youtube channel. My question to fellow WUS members here, are you comfortable and am able to immediately read the time on your 24 hours watches like how you would on a normal 12 hour dial...

    Hi mates, this is my first post here in this forum! I have recently bought a Vostok Komandirskie Parachute/Airborne/Paratrooper for about 40$ here in Iran. After I could not find or maybe I could not see the exact same watch on the internet I started to doubt about its originality. Here are some...

    I'm looking for a few (2 or 3) Vostok collectors with modding / watchmaking experience in the US or Canada to test out some custom caseback openers. These openers are specific for the Amphibia (BA) or a Komandirskie (BK). So far I've confirmed the fit and operation with Amphibia 710, 110 and...

    Hi there So i have noticed quite often the more expensive or complex the movement a timepiece has the more expensive it is so why and how does Vostok manage to cram 30 Jewels or more into their watches for under £100. I just received a orient kamasu Today and I'm over the moon with it, i got it...

    Hey there, I've been looking for my first russian watch for a while and I found this Komandirskie, but I'm kinda suspicious because it's pretty cheap, like 50% off. It appears to be a legit design, inspired by the Soviet Military Space Forces, found it on Meranom's website too, model 811958...

    Does anyone have a go-to source for Vostok mod parts? I’ve looked on Meranom, but not sure if there’s a way to verify model compatibility for parts. I’m looking to swap the bezel on my Komandirskie 020706

    For sale is the classic Vostok Amphibian 420 cased "Scuba Dude" model, on a blue perlon strap. I purchased it new around 4 years ago and have worn it only occasionally. Condition is very clean overall, with just a few small blemishes on the side of the polished case. This particular Amphibian...

    Hi all Last birthday I was presented with the best, most thoughtful gift I've ever had....a vintage Boctok watch, and I cherish it hugely! Unfortunately my teenage son decided to borrow it without asking and proceeded to overwind it and then drop it cracking the glass. I'm wondering if anyone...

    Hi all, I found a Vostok 2414a movement in a regular Komandirskie case in my drawer. There is no rust in it but when I try to unscrew the crown and wind it there is no tension which normally would. There is still those clicking sound by the way. And I noticed on the dial while trying to wind it...

    I have an old Boctok Komandirskie on the way on which I want to replace the hands, the crown, and the crystal if it doesn’t polish up well. I just don’t know how to identify the movement so I can get ahold of compatible parts. Thank you for your help in advance!

    Hi all! This is my first post on this forum and I have a burning question! My partner handed me a watch to service that belonged to her (Russian) grandfather with an interesting text saying: "from the government of Moscow for service to the fatherland". Due to some obscurities within the...

    Recently, my Vostok Amphibia fogged up when I was swimming with it. I read a lot of forum posts where people immediately concluded that fogging was a sign of the water resistance being compromised. In fact, this seemed like the most common response. But I also remembered seeing a video in...
