Here is my Soyuz Apollo Vostok watch with unique numbered back. The original case it came in was in bad condition (see photos) so I decided to put it in a better case. Luckily I had this rare Amphibia case that took a Komandirskie size back plate. I think the watch looks rather good. I think the bezel suits it too.

Does anyone know anything about the dial and back plate . . . what does it commemorate and how many were made?
Going by the originals case condition it wasn't looked after.

I suppose these watches suppose to commemorate soiuz-appolo docking

There is omega speedmaster releases commemorating this event (Americans did wear Omegas).
But in Soviet (so call Russian) watches despite high popularity of space theme at the time none been present.
So this is modern "fantasy dial" on a modern watch.

This watch was produced as a promotional item for a cigarette company call Apollo Soyuz. It was given away as a prize for a competition they ran in the early 2000's.

I did some research and posted what I found out a while ago, here is my original post https://www.watchuseek.com/f10/dial-help-historic-event-themed-watches-4179546.html#post40170210

Here is my watch :-!
