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 watch? I am still not used to it. And I think me changing my watches every day (though I did wear the Vostok for a week straight) doesn't help. 🤣

I've worn 24-hour watches exclusively for some years now and frequently find I'm reading the 24-hour hand without conscious thought. Occasionally I get confused by twelve-hour clocks.

I believe if you stick with it you'll develop the brain wiring to switch seamlessly between 12 and 24 hours. To keep you on your toes, get a 12-up 24-hour watch as well!

Yep, I agree, it takes a while, but in the end you can switch fairly easily.

I've sone left crown watches and now and then I put them on upside down, it takes a while to overcome years of training with a right crown, 12 hour watch.

That's interesting. It's a matter of acclimatizing then :D

yep, I have both 12-hr and 24-hrs watches and undoubtedly no issues with looking the time in a single glance.
Got it, I will continue to wear it in good faith and hope I get use to it soon. Seriously liking the watch.

Mine is the engraved bezel white dial as shown above by member 'bearwithwatch.'
Had it for almost a year now, but have worn it only in rotation about 1/2 month twice now.
I still find it a bit weird to get used to, but that would get better if I wore it more.
I did buy it because the 24 hour dial was attractive to me, and I found it was a great deal as far as price.
Vostok makes a great watch for the cost.
The biggest issue I have with it is I wish the dates were a little fatter and wider, as they are difficult for my old eyes.
But not a deal breaker.

Almost exactly what I went through as well. Another thing that I found quite annoying is the lack of quick set date. But not a deal breaker.
