Vostok Amphibia 300m Wire Lugs




Vostok 300m Amphibia [Wire lugs],Grail arrives.
There seems to have been quit a bit of interest in this watch ,as it was drawn to my attention,i read with weary resignation, some of the  comment on a watch forum.It just reinforces my view,that,although they offer a wealth of kowledgable informed members,theres always a small minority of the ill informed,who often talk about nothing,[at length!],and use it, as an unwitting showcase,for there own narrow prejudices,that's why i tend to keep away from most of them.

I bought this watch off a great seller[,thank you Slava],whom i have happily bought off before.we came to an understanding that was amicable to both sides.

When i received the watch ,i was overwhelmed by its complete,originality,it was much heavier than my other amphibias,because of its much more substantial construction,much thicker crystal and case back for example,the wire lugs are 22mm in width, the watch is on a temporary strap,until i can source better.
Overall condition,is truly exceptional,keeps excellent time,looks truly stunning on the wrist,the thicker crystal,seems to emphasise that hand painted jewel of a dial.

These watches were originaly military issue,[possibly only 200,in number].Extremely Rare.

  3. Hello Aditya,lovely to hear from you.
    Yes,i am sure many people will wonder what on earth i am going on about,it is just a very Rare Russian watch,that has three things in its favour,condition,unique design details and the fact it was issued to the Russian military.
