Vostok Swing Lugs 2209 Added.



Just received this Vostok swing lugs of a trusted seller.It is very original,[has that great original look and feel,unlike some],has correct Crown and small seconds hand.Some of these Vostoks have space history.This type of Swing lugs,MAY have been worn by Juri Romanenko on Soyus 38.Anyway as i have said before these Vostoks are extremely easy to wear,a very nice size[Thats in subtle,not the modern trend,for grotesquely large],keeps great time,a lovely addition to the collection.

Another Luch Ultra thin added.

I always find it hard to resist,these beautiful ultra thin watches,whether they be ,Poljot or Luch or even, slightly left field,Raketa`s take on them.
I have several  versions of each,and i am always on the look out for more original versions,they must be in good condition though.The Poljot versions ,have started to creep up in value,as have the Raketa`s.
You can still pick up the Luch versions quite cheaply,if you look carefully.All versions are a lovely subtle watch to wear,great on formal or informal occasions,the 2209 movement,when properly serviced can be extremely accurate.
