[SOLD] Russian Automatic (self-winding) Vostok watch
« on: March 18, 2015, 10:19:07 PM »
I had to have one and was planning on modding it with a different bezel and dial.
But I have too many  projects already and I don´t want to catch the "Russian Watch" bug, too.

The watch in question is a nice "Operation Desert Shield" edition.
It is marked "Vremir". As far as I know this was a label planned to be used in western countries to sell "Boktok" watches.
The watch runs ok as far as I can tell. It winds by hand and by moving it, date shifts correctly, keeps time as far as I can tell from wearing it a few days.

I will include the rather odd - but new russian made, grey leather strap and a nice, rarely worn red Nato/Zulu strap.

Take it off of my hands for 35,- € including registered, worldwide shipment.

Thanks. I think I would get in trouble trouble keeping it - I already have had dials and bezels in my eBay watchlist.
I simply don´t need another obsession... ;)

That's is a cool watch and it is a wind up on top of that. I do kinda find it funny growing up in the tell end of the cold war a Russian made watch with a US flag on it. No disrespect intended to our Russian members.

I will trade this, too. Looking for a reliable, AA or AAA LED light, for example.
