I've been really interested in getting myself a hand-wind/mechanical watch as of late. Been looking at what's available. Honestly, I love the WWII US designs, unfortunately, what I see is either on the expensive side, or looks like holy heck.
However, I've found Vostoks are about $50-60 and they have some really nice designs. Yeah, not crazy about all the Russian/Soviet markings on them, but it's part of their history. Seeing as they're military issue, I figure they're tough. Honestly, I'm looking at the Komandirskie as at $55, it's the cheapest. But then again, not exactly watertight. I'm not going swimming with it, but a little better water resistance would help. Apparently, that model is not made to withstand anything more than hand-washing. So maybe splurge on an Amphibian?
Anyone have any experience with them?
