Description

Vostok Amphibia tonneau watch

MADE IN USSR!

 

Manufactured on Chistopolsky Watch Factory “VOSTOK”, USSR.

The company was appointed an official supplier of watches for the Defence Department of the Soviet Union in 1965. This year also marks the creation of the well known Komandirskie (“Commander’s”) watch.

The experience gained through development of the army watch led to the Amphibia, a stainless-steel watch able to withstand a 200 metre depth (20atm).

Watches sold to the military were marked “ЗАКАЗ МО СССР,” meaning “Ordered by the Ministry of Defence of the USSR.” These models were sold exclusively through Voentorg stores, which catered to military personnel with identification only.  Today, these models have become sought-after collectibles.

 

The watch is mechanical and does not need batteries to operate.

 

Original soviet “Amphibia” has mechanical lever movement and manual winding.
