From my private collection comes this rare and 100% original Vostok Komandirskie 1945-1985 handwinder from 1985.
This watch was specially commissioned for the last big remembrance day of the end of WW2 also better known in the USSR as The Great Patriotic War.
They did not celebrate this event huge every year, this was only the third time but in 1985 it was kind of the last chance to go all out with a larger parade with lots of aging veterans present.

The case is in excellent condition, please look at the photos for the exact state.
Inside ticks Vostok’s own sturdy 2414 handwinder movement which keeps good time and switches date like it should .

The watch has a brilliant golden brown tropical spider dial which runs from quite course at the top to very fine at the bottom of the dial, thus creating a nice gradient effect, it includes the St. George ribbon and the Soviet star. The tritium lume on the dial hand hands has turned a lovely vanilla over time.
