Vostok company story starts back in 1942, when one of the Moscow watch-making plants has been evacuated from Moscow to a little town Chistopol located on the Kama River. Defense equipment was the only company output during war years, but as soon as the war was over Vostok started to make mechanical wrist watches - the main production item ever since. In 1965 Vostok company was appointed an official supplier of watches for the Defense Department of the Soviet Union. This year marks the creation of the world-famous "Komandirskie" ("Commander") watch. Military watch grew very popular even with people who were unaware which end of the gun bullet comes off, mainly due to high precision, excessive reliability and durability. The appearance of the watch also contributes to its appeal - functional and clear-cut design invoked the feeling of belonging to the tough world of combat professional. The experience which Vostok gained through development of the army watch was the foundation of our next special watch - "Amphibian". This impressive timepiece in stainless-steel case endured the depth of 2000 meters - kind of a wrist submarine. Success of the professional watches determined the company's present philosophy - to create mechanical watches maintaining precise timekeeping at any temperature, in any environment, surviving heavy pressure and blows. The viability of the chosen strategy is now time-proven. A vast multitude of people both in Russia and abroad boasting "Vostok" watches and various international prizes awarded for high quality and commercial success testify to this. In 1996 Vostok started a partnership with US "Capital Trading" company aiming to create a new generation timepiece.

Here is deal. If you like watches and want a cheap conversation piece for your collection, just get it. You will like it.
The good. -
Its got history and comes from a Russian military lineage. I like that.
It was in the movie Life Aquatic. (With a Casio type dive band)
It has a cool look.
It's an automatic.
The bad. -
The construction is just ok.
The bracelet band is junk. Just get a new band and toss the old one out. I got the one they used in the movie Life Aquatic. A Nato band would look sharp as well.
The crystal is some kind of plastic or something. I don't know what it is but It scuffs with ease.
I can't figure out how to move the date, to advance it by just 5 days I have spin the hands 10 times. (Pain in the rear)
The power reserve is short. I have not timed it but it's more than 12 hours and less 24 hours of sitting idle.
Ok. If you think you want this for some history, or movie, or cool look reason, get it for your collection. If you don't have many watches already and you are looking for a quality watch for under $100 run away. I am glad I got this watch but I have many watches. If you want a quality automatic for the same price I would recommend the Seiko 5. It's a much better watch.
