Here are two other examples found by Mchap, a forum member.I got this Vostok some weeks ago. As far as I understand is a Днепр (Dnieper, the name of a river) Vostok. I have not a clue about its origin.
Dniepr-Vostok! Huray! :-!Here are two other examples found by Mchap, a forum member.
I guess that they are related somehow with Ukraine, where the Dnepr river is located.
We were undecided about the DB logo, now it clear that it's Dnepr-Boctok. |>
The only Ukrainian watch factory that i know is Kleinod, that assembled also several Poljot models in the past. Other informations on those papers?
They could be very useful :-!
Yes - that Prince Askold was an amazing guy. Mothers in Ukraine still proudly name their sons after Prince AskoldI found this in the web:
There is a legend that in 882 a boat of Prince Oleg, a successor of Novgorod prince Rurik, came to Dnieper coast. "The story of time years" tells us that variags Askold and Dir were Rurik combatants (under other version - the boyars), and had no lawful powers for Kiev board. Prince Oleg enticed them to Dnieper coast, killed with the help of his soldiers and took Kiev throne. Other annals specify, that Askold was the descendant of Kiev founder prince Kij. Some annals also say, that Dir was Askold predecessor and died long before Askold coming to Kiev.
Here i found an interesting article: http://www.zn.ua/2000/2675/44285/I recall mention some years ago on this forum (might have been a post by Irena Maier) of a short-lived Vostok assembly factory in the eastern part of the Ukraine around the time of the breakup of the USSR.
The lack of country-of-origin markings, and the Ukrainian flag on Michele's example proves that Vostok assembly did survive there for a little while at least.
