Hi guys,

I bought this VOSTOK EUROPE as a gift for my girlfriend :




Very nice watch, both feminine & sporty :)

Got it from Russia2All.

Here are the specifications :

YT57

40 mm 5 atm stainless steel rose gold PVD case
48 Swarovski stones mechanically set on the bezel.
MOP (mother of pearl) dial with lacquer printed pattern.
YT57 Japanese movement with 6 ruby jewels energized by hand motions. No battery required.
3 lacquer genuine leather straps easily interchangeable without special tools (by finger or nail). Strap colors for this model are: RED, WHITE and GRAPHITE (black)
Full watch set will be packed in lacquer leather cosmetic case (made in Lithuania) with VE logo.


First, bad pics from the unpacking, better ones afterwards ;-)






















A few outdoor pics, while it's sunny b-)








Very nice mother of pearl dial :














Back inside :










Nice Swarovski stone on the 12 o'clock mark :










Signed buckle :










The easy spring bar system is really easy ;-) it only takes a second to shift straps :-!












On my gf's wrist :




Conclusion : Very nice watch, well build, with a nice finish :-!

It's the first AGS (Automatic Generating System) movement we have in our watches collections (Mrs Reno has a few of her own :-d ) ; it took a while to give the watch the initial charge (when the battery is incompletely recharged, the second hand "jumps" 2sec).
When completely charged, the watch is supposed to have a 6 months autonomy o_O we'll see that ;-)


Thanks for reading :)

I like that very much. I'm not familiar with the AGS. Will have to do some reading. I LOVE the red strap.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks Jeannie :)

For what I understood, it's the first (second) gen of SEIKO's kinetic movement :think:

Perfect Vostok! New band is also lovely, and almost indestructible, at least in my own experience.

One of the best choices for Ladies' watch, is the one with mother of pearl dial. :)
