Default Scuba Dude on the way.

Had some built up Amazon bonus bucks available, so decided to purchase another Cheapee!

For some reason this Vostok "Scuba Dude" model jumped out at me, maybe it was the case shape. It's probably not as well made as an Invicta but we shall see.

My Buddy who owns a high end Vietnamese restaurant is having a charity event there on the 21st invited me, he usually is sporting a Yachtmaster, or a Deep Sea, Breitling or like last time an IWC Chrono Diver.

Wait till I show him me wearing this thing, it should be worth the price of admission

I have a couple Vostoks and I like them but their crown operation is quite crude and clunky. Fit/finish is about what you'd expect a $50-$60 watch to be. Still, they have a rugged charm to them. Your buddy's cheapest strap is probably worth four of those!

I rather like these. They have a rough & ready character about them

Very nice Chaz, and think that dial alone will be turning heads at
that party ! Along with the awesome orange NATO too sir.

Yup, these watches have a unique way about them, but just the
case designs, and dials are worth it imho. Can't wait to hear how
you like it. ..Big congrats ahead of time here !!!

I have one that I picked up in a multi watch sale. I love the way it looks and that’s about the only good thing I can say about it. It is very comfortable and light.
