I've just received the mail from the bay, about my first auction.

So it seems I've been the only bidder for a Vostok Europe ENERGIA.




I've always wanted this watch, but found it a bit pricey (it's >350€ here) so when I saw this one for 195€ + shipping, I thought I'd give it a try :)

Can't wait to receive it !!
I'll keep you guys posted :)

:-! Nice. I like the newer energias, but the price was keeping me away perhaps I should look on ebay. They are supposed to be pretty heavy watches.

I have that same one. It's really fun to wear out every once and a while. The one drawback is that the date is not a quick set type. Gets lots of of (positive) comments. Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks lenny :) I probably will.

Well, I'm not too concerned about the date. I already own a vintage Yema with the same date setting, and it's not such a big deal, when you get used to it.

Actually, I consider it a true "quick set" date... :think:
I mean I have vintage watches with NO quick set date at all (you have to wind 24h to move the date forward) and THAT'S royal pain ;-)

Watch has arrived…

… but it went through the customs :-x

I'll have to pay an additional €54 to retrieve it. Oh well, it's still a bargain :roll:

I'll keep you guys posted tomorrow. I'll probably post crappy pics from the office, then better ones in the evening when I'll be back home ;-)

So, I finally discovered what this "non quick set date" was all about :

The hour hand must be brought back before 21h, then forward past 12h to have the date changed :-x I thought it was like on my old Yema, where I just have to bring the minute hand before 21h, then past 12h.

So yes, it takes longer to set the date on the Energia :-x

Well, I guess this one will have to stay on the winder ;-)

On the other hand, this is the first watch I own with an "instant changing" date.
By that I mean the date doesn't change from ~22h to ~3h ; At midnight, it changes instantly o_O

So I guess there's no "dead zone" with this watch ? :think:


It looks great! Congrats |>
Wow! A beautiful piece to be sure.
:thanks guys !

Update : the watch spent the night on the winder, and til now it's spot on :-!
