That was fast, did you use Amazon? I'm still waiting for my Komandirskie, been about 3 weeks and could be another 3 for all I know... no tracking info given.

Owning 3 of the same case model other than date and dial any noticeable variations in polishing. Any running fast or slow. Just curious mine are different models made at different times. Lovely collection. I like the white dial but scuba dude is a classic.

Polishing is all the same, highly polished, almost bling-like, I do intend to pull the bezel off one or two of them and use a Scotchbrite green pad to polish them down to a brushed finish. I will do nothing the actual cases on any of them.

This new one is running about -8 seconds a day, the white dial +5 now, and the Scuba Dude is still almost running dead on without being reset for over a month now!

The worst one of the 3 is running +8 spd that's amazing. It sounds like they're improving quality control.

What a cool surprise Chaz ! :coo2l: :)

First you have the timing of the watch's arrival, but then the watch
looks even nicer than the stock pictures did. :clap2: Love just the shape
of the case, and the angles. Along with NATO, and how it mirrors the
way the dial is !

Honestly looks amazing next to your other beauties, and makes for a
real hat trick ! ..A huge congrats here Chaz !!! Hope you enjoy sir !

They have also upgraded their crowns and bezels from chrome-plated bronze to solid stainless steel as well!

For about $500 bucks you could have an entire watch box full of different model Vostoks, have an entire collection on the cheap!

It's pretty incredible Chaz, and really shows how many different
ways there are to enjoy this hobby. :smile-thumb2:

Seriously, just focusing on one brand like Vostok could take up
all of our time, and money if we wanted right?!! :) ..That's not
even counting Vostok watches of the past either. :eek:

Just are such a terrific brand, and of course watches Chaz !

So happy to see you enjoying them as much as you are sir.

I ordered a Vostok stock "Batman" blue and black bezel from Russia yesterday for this watch. Decided to do so because will definitely change up the looks and taking the bezel off and on was a snao!

A lot less if you buy used.
I never buy used, if I want to look at dings and scratches, I want to look at ones I put there!;)

Wow, that's right Chaz, I forgot how many different bezel options
Vostok has for their watches ! :thumb::thumb: One watch could have a fleet
of different looks actually right?! It's going to be awesome I think.
What a terrific decision, and idea to do this sir ! :happy0065:

Chaz, I understand that there are more than one online site to order from Russia if you don't want to shop Amazon.

Which site did you use? (I thought perhaps Meranom Store)
