What’s the difference between a Vostok Amphibian and a Vostok Amphibia?

What’s the difference between a Vostok Amphibian and a Vostok Amphibia?

Are they different names for the same kind of watch?

Amphibia is Russian for Amphibian ....which is their term for a divers watch.

Which is why there's the Raketa Amphibia ....

Amphibia = Transliteration of the Russian name
Amphibian = Full translation of the Russian name, and I'm my opinion the proper English name based on official media although "Amphibia" and "Amfibia" were officially used in the past.

Thanks for all your answers. The world of Vostok can be confusing to someone like me who is just starting to explore it.
