I'm a weird guy, I don't have a problem admitting that. Somehow I managed to stumble into another strange hobby, collecting Russian watches. They're affordable, they're different, and they provide an alternative to looking at your cell phone to see what time it is.
This arrived on my doorstep today.
It's a Vostok Amphibia, it cost a whopping $59 plus shipping on Ebay. I was a little concerned about buying anything from Russia but I read plenty of positive comments about the seller (Zenitar) on various watch forums. This same watch is available in a huge variety of faces, you're bound to find something you like.
The watches are well regarded but the stock bracelet is considered junk. I immediately replaced it with a couple of military style nylon straps.
From what I gathered the Radio Room is the most sought after version of the Amphibia. There is also a Radio Room with a black face, it's pretty cool.
Vostok Amphibia-if it's good enough for Steve Zissou it's good enough for me. All I need now is a red cap and a speedo.
