Description

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

Let me introduce to you a good example of Russian watch producing industry. This is VOSTOK KOMANDIRSKIE – made by Chistopol Watch Factory in Russia. This wristwatches awarded those commanders and specialists, who in the course of combat missions demonstrated outstanding punctuality, which affected the outcome of the military operation, either with a stock invested in the specified time when the standard of educational tasks. Excellent Russian military watch in very good condition. Keeps good time!

With special gift – Strap (Bracelet) 18mm.

Watches are mechanical and need manual winding. It is used but in rather good condition taking into account their age. Please see condition on photo.

You should wind up the watch every day in approximate same time. That must be done very gently until it will go tight.

A brief historical background:

Vostok/Wostok (Russian: Восток, meaning East*) Watch Makers, Inc. produces mainly rugged military and diver mechanical watches at its factory in Chistopol, Tatarstan, Russia. It also makes clocks and watch movements for other watch brands.
The Vostok Company was founded in 1942 when one of the Moscow watch-making plants of the First Moscow Watch Factory was evacuated to Chistopol, a small town located on the Kama River in Tatarstan. Only defence equipment was produced during the war years, but as soon as the war was over the company started making mechanical wrist watches. However, the Company did not begin using the "Vostok" brand name until the 1960s. *Presumable "Vostok" brand was named after the Vostok space program, which gave the initial advancement of the USSR in the Space race (as some others soviet watch brands, named to space topics in 1960s - Poljot and Raketa).
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). By 1980, Vostok Watch Makers was producing 4.5 million timepieces per year.
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.)
At turn of the 21st century, Vostok launched a line of 1940s-style replicas called the Kirovskie K-43 collection. Vostok also began producing a "luxury" line of watches called Kremlevskie. Both lines are made of stainless steel, produced in limited quantities, and aimed toward a more affluent consumer.
In 2004, Vostok Watch Makers began supplying movements to the Koliz Company of Lithuania, makers of the Vostok Europe brand of timepieces.
In 2006, Vostok Watch Makers began marketing another new line of watches branded "Amfibia." This brand, like most other Vostok products, features the familiar 31-jewel automatic (No. 2416B) movement. These watches feature "diver" styling with polyurethane or stainless steel bands.
An updated version of the Komandirskie debuted in summer, 2007, and a special anniversary edition of the Amphibia (called the "1967") appeared in early 2008. Both of these models feature high-quality assembly, materials and packaging.
Despite the introduction of the new lines of Komandirskie and Amphibia, the "classic" models (mostly designed in 1960s and 1970s) of these lines was still in production (as of 2014).
In early 2010, Vostok Watch Factory filed for bankruptcy and their official web page was disabled. The factory went through restructure and resumed the production of watches and movements.
Watch dimensions are:


18 Jewels; Dial diameter - 28 mm; Case diameter – 33 mm; Watch thickness - 9 mm; made in 1960.
The cover is with lettering in Russian: Shockproof balance and dust-proof
