Note (added March,26, 2008): The payments are closed. Please don't send messages with requests of purchase, etc. We gave a lot of time to order/pay, and we published a lot of informative threads. Philip needs a precise number of watches to order Vostok, so further orders will be refused.

Next step will be the confirmation of the choosen engraving. Please stay tuned.

Regards

M.Cuoccio
-------------------------

For the watch enthusiasts who still don't know the project, some time ago we made a prototype (https://www.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=94317), with a general description (origin of the dial design, etc.). Now we can communicate the details of the operation.
The watch will be made directly in the Chistopol factory, complete with original Vostok stainless steel bracelet and box.
It will be produced in 2 versions - with or without date window (the caliber is always the 2416 automatic with date mechanism). All the details on the watch (inscriptions, dimensions, hands) were improved. The watch will have Komandirskie black hands (closer to the navy clock) and a triangle at 12 on the bezel.

The watches will be available also with a short customized engraving on the caseback. All the watches will be with serial number (it can't be choosen). The pic of the caseback is a computer-graphic preview, so it is just indicative of the final result (the engraving will be handmade for each watch).

The total cost (shipping included) will be $ 97,00 (Euro 66,00) for the version with engraving, and $90,00 (Euro 61,00) without engraving. Price for USA and Europe is the same.

Now, how we must act? We have opened a 2-weeks "reservations list", with all the people who wants to buy the watch.
We must do the same on WUS. Once the requested amount of buyers is reached (we need at least 50 buyers to start the production, and other 50 buyers for the version without date window), the reservations period will end, and we will start the individual payments to the supplier. After the start of the payments, the payments must be concentrated in short time, to allow the start of the production. If you will delete your reservation on the last minute, the number of orders will decrease, and we need at least 50+50 orders. So please order the watch only if seriously interested!

Expected delivery time since the payments is approximately 2 months, apparently a long time, but it is justified by the production process (read details here). Me and Carlo are not involved in the operation, the supplier is Russianwatch.net , so the responsable of the whole operation is Philip Katilin, who owns that company and who will elaborate the orders, collecting the payments.

To pre-order a watch, please add a simple message (use the REPLY button - not the QUOTE REPLY button!) with your name, the version that you want (with/without date window), and the desired engraving (or not engraving at all). Step by step, the list will grow.

Just a quick note to say I've changed the name for engraving to Sam rather than sammyboy, cheers!
