Vostock Amphibia Automatic

Brand new condition and looks unused Vostock Amphibia automatic divers watch. The Vostock watches have a cult following. They are low cost divers watches originally made in the USSR, now Russia but continue to manufacture them in the style that was recognised as distinctly Soviet era. The first Amphibia watches were manufactured in 1967 in the USSR by Chistopol watch factory Vostok Professional seamen, divers and submariners gave their preference to Amphibia watches

The movement is house made based on Swiss escapement system, steel wheels and forks, a support on ruby stones, a coil spring made of precision alloys. The case is stainless steel with mineral crystal. The case back is screw on and has a screw down crown. The crown has an external thread rather than the usual internal thread seen on Swiss watches. This makes the crown famously wobbly when it is unscrewed and the time is being set. Comes on original rubber strap with box and papers. Width is 42mm excluding crown, 44 including crown, 45 mm  lug to lug and 10 mm thick
